Why does this profile show up as Unconnected?

+6 votes
Glancing through my Unconnected list and I found an ancestor who shows as Unconnected to the tree, yet he clearly has direct descendants. I added his spouse, but it did not resolve.

He shows as Unconnected because he is not connected to the global tree. He does have descendants but they are not connected to the global tree. You will need to add his ancestors and see if you can find a link to someone already here. Or perhaps one of his descendants or their spouse can be found to link to the major family tree.

I am his descendant and I am very well connected to the global tree.
Then it is a puzzlement. How long ago did you connect him? It does take about 24 hours to react to such changes. If that is not the answer, I am at a loss to answer your question. Perhaps there is a technical glitch somewhere.
Well, it hasn't been 24 hours, so I'll check again tomorrow. Thank you!
It shows up as connected now.
Happy to hear that. I think they only update some things once a day.
