Hi Elizabeth, and welcome to WikiTree. Thank you for introducing yourself in our g2g forum. This is also the place you would come to ask questions about ancestor that you are stumped on.
Your next step would be to upgrade to a family membership and add tags of your family surnames. You would then be connected to people that are researching the same family names that you are. Family memberships are always 100% free.
Welcome again to WikiTree and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
