WikiTree A Free Way to Find Family

WikiTree is a free way you may find you ancestors! Those of us who have spent years of time researching our ancestors have been able to upload are gedcom files to one place where we can ALL collaborate together to bring all those huge family trees into one (eventually).

I uploaded my deceased family members and within weeks, I received a message from Germany, a 3rd cousin I had not known had found my tree online! We have emailed ever since, exchanging pictures and family tree information. We have been able to fill in the blanks as her side of the family remained in Germany as my side left and came to the USA in the 1880’s. She is able to gather church records and translate them for me and I in turn can search the US records and translate them for her for other family members which emigrated to the US.

Sharing my tree on WikiTree was the best thing I ever did! Now I’m hoping that it leads me to find leads to my Irish, Scottish and eventually, Saami ancestors…..
