This presentation gives a general overview and introduction to the free collaborative family tree site, WikiTree. It will cover the site's mission and Honor Code, privacy versus open collaboration, genetic genealogy features, cousin bait, becoming a part of the community, and the benefits of membership.
Eowyn Langholf was first introduced to genealogy by her mother when she was a teenager and quickly picked up the hobby. Over the years it evolved from a hobby to a career and Eowyn has been a professional genealogist for 8 years now. Her primary areas of focus are the United States, Germany, Italy, the UK and Spain. She especially enjoys helping adopted individuals try to find their roots. In addition, Eowyn is going on her third year as the Forest Elf of WikiTree. Her responsibilities include everything from administration to social media. As the owner says, they've stopped trying to track everything she does. It's a fool's errand for a mortal.
