All previous reviews I agree with, but we may disagree on different levels. My home tree Is My Heritage, the best.

Wiki tree has people going in and changing information that you have entered and known to bee correct, then they send you and email to thank a person for changing that information. Correct info great. (Even thou it could be wrong).

I don't like to be told to put my family on face book, If they want to join that's up to them. I'm not a member of face book, my business is mine not yours or whether you agree with me or not. I believe in serious genealogy and it's not found on social media.

Use Wiki tree for what it's mean to be used for, a free helpful too (TO build a tree)l I think a lot of the people are really trying to make good contributions Stay with your good intentions.it's up to you to try it or not, no matter what I say.

In summary, I would recommend Wiki Tree to a friend.

The best thing is that it is free. It intends to be a global tree that everybody collaborates on, but after years it still has many thousands of entries that have no sources and lead to nowhere. It is active, and most members seem to have good intentions. Note that if you register the ads go away.

It is extremely hard to navigate if you need to look for information or help. The main menu system has like 60 options and I'm not kidding. It seems to have people just constantly add help and other pages on top of ones already there making it complicated and repetitious and difficult to use. The search function is basically useless for the site and for the community message board called G2G. That message board is a strange one, not like others I'm used to. On this one, like Jeopardy, every topic starts in the form of a question and since the search function is so weak it seems some of the same topics are repeated over and over again even in the space of just a few days. It's difficult to read and follow.

As others have said, there are no reference sources or actual... (Read the full review)

In summary, I would recommend Wiki Tree to a friend.
