Hi Richard, and welcome to WikiTree. You have received some wonderful advice from Lothar. I would advice you to add a tag which you have upgraded to a family membership (which is 100% free). The tags can be surnames of your ancestors and/or locations that they lived. You would be connected with other members of WikiTree that might be searching the same family that you are.
Thank you for introducing yourself in our g2g forum. As you know this is the place that you come to ask questions about yours ancestors.
Once again, Welcome to WikiTree, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
