Welcome to WikiTree. There is a lot to learn, but there will be a lot of people to help you along the way. Within a day or so of joining, using family research, I was able to add my mother, her parents, and my grandfather's parents. My grandfather's father's parents' profiles already existed on WikiTree. Once I connected my great-grandfather to the already existing profile of my great-great-grandfather and great-great-grandmother, I was connected to the WikiTree Global Tree. I appreciate all of the members who have helped me find and cite good sources. I wish you a lot of luck in your work.
