New WikiTree Feature: Surname Following

WikiTreeUsers of WikiTree, a shared family tree website, will notice a new feature on the website now: Surname Following. Utilizing the new Wiki Genealogy Feed, users can enter specific surnames to follow. They’ll receive updates via email when other WikiTree users update information on that surname on a tree or comment on that surname in the WikiTree G2G (“Genealogist to Genealogist”) Q&A forum.

WikiTree is a free website that aims to grow a “single, worldwide family tree that will eventually connect us all and thereby make it free and easy for anyone to discover their roots.”
