WikiTree announces the official launch of its new
Genealogist-to-Genealogist (G2G) Sharing Network
While most collaboration and sharing at WikiTree happens along family
lines, G2G is especially designed for genealogists to ask for help
from other genealogists, regardless of whether or not they have a
direct family connection.
Do you remember when you first started researching your family
history? Not only did you have questions to ask other family members,
but you weren’t sure how to get started tracing your roots. We
learn by asking questions, and G2G offers a supportive environment
for all genealogists to get the answers they need.
You don’t need to be a WikiTree member to ask and answer questions
on G2G. In fact, you can use G2G to ask for an invitation to join the
community. Users are also asking questions about brick wall ancestors
and getting generous research help and look-ups.
To celebrate National Ask a Question Day, come ask a question!
WikiTree's mission is to grow a single worldwide family tree which
will ultimately make genealogy free and accessible for everyone.
Privacy and collaboration are balanced so that families can share
personal information while at the same time growing a valuable
genealogical resource with distant cousins and strangers. WikiTree is
entirely free for everyone but new members must be invited by a
family member or fellow genealogist. Seehttp://www.WikiTree.com/
This sounds like a good feature on WikiTree. There are already a number of how-to questions and brick-wall queries for people to respond to and help solve a problem. Of course, it will be successful only if the genealogy community adopts it and inundates the site with queries AND responses.
