Program: WikiTree with Eowyn Langholf
WikiTree is a free, shared social networking genealogy website that allows users to research and contribute to their own personal family trees, while also building and collaborating on a single, worldwide family tree. Users requesting membership in the WikiTree Community are asked to commit to a nine-point honour code that encourages collaboration, accuracy, and the use of sources and citations. Courtesy in dealing with others, consideration of copyrights, and respect for the privacy of others are among the hallmarks of the honour code. Eowyn will present a basic overview of the mission of WikiTree, the features of the site, and the benefits of participating in a collaborative, single, family tree.
