I’d like to have comments, advice, etc. on wikitree. A brother, with an interest in history and genealogy, has discovered it. He sent me a link to an ancestor and is asking if it’s reliable? I’ve spent some time looking at wikitree, reading FAQ, trying to get a handle on it. Frankly, I wasn’t aware of it. Thanks for any information.

I never heard of it before either. It’s at It’s free, and lets you put your family tree online. My first impression is that it’s similar to FamilySearch Family Tree in that it’s collaborative, and different in that it emphasizes the importance of sources (see their Honor Code page). There are some user reviews at GenSoftReviews and Thomas MacEntee reviewed it on GeneaBlogger five years ago. But I haven’t used it myself.

If you have any comments you can either write to Bonnie at, or comment on this post.
