Hi J, and welcome to WikiTree. You have come to the right place to introduce yourself and also to ask questions about your ancestors. Your next step would be to upgrade to a family membership. This is 100% free to you, and after you upgrade you can add tags that represent the surnames of your family. You would then be connected to other people on WIkiTree that are researching the same family names that you are.
Thank you for introducing yourself and welcome once again. I hope you love WikiTree as much as I do.
