As, I mentioned before, you can't actually use the graphical tree (Family Tree Explorer) without first registering. Registration is pretty simple, you're not even required to provide an email address. One of it's strengths is supposed to be to use as a collaboration tool. Based on my experience, people are often very secretive when developing family trees. I'm not sure why but typically they want to keep the information guarded at least until it's complete. Everything you do is viewable to the public with the tool. I welcome you to look at pages from my uploaded tree. I am not a member of this tree, it's work I did for a family member. Below is a link to a page for noted Texas educator, Samuel Walker Houston, where I created a couple of web links just to try/learn about the whole wiki thing. You can click on CONNECT and Search for Carter G. Woodson (there are at least two Carter Woodsons in the tree, one is his grandfather). If you want to register I'd be interested to know if you can launch the tree I uploaded. The name of the tree is Riddles_of_Buckingham_VA. They are sticklers about copyrights so I don't have any photos uploaded.
