If you are not familiar with the free family history resources at WikiTree.com, you should be. WikiTree is a website made for all genealogists to explore their family history, contribute to family preservation, and where you can add your family tree to the world collaborative tree at WikiTree. Several great advantages at WikiTree is 1) It’s free, 2) Every person has source citations where you can find evidence, and links that show you how family clans are connected, 3) it is run by dedicated and very helpful WikiTree volunteers from around the world.
There is so much to tell you about WikiTree that I had to make a video to show how to explore the free resources at WikiTree. The exciting part about WikiTree is that as you build your tree and make a connection to the world tree, you may just ripple out hundreds of ancestors with one connection to the world tree.
