With relation to the above question, do I need to manually enter Family Tree members from scratch on Wikitree Family Tree?

Keep in mind this is one shared tree too. You will be linking your branches to the main tree.
You can do either or both ways. When I upload a gedcom file I usually get lots of junk information written into each profile which I then have to edit out. I prefer to manually enter the data. That way I have full control with all aspects of each file. It may seem time consuming but it's not in comparison if you have to re-edit each profile with a gedcom upload. Just my opinion.

I'm not positive I understand your Question but... I see you just imported a small gedcom. You can see these people from your Watchlist, which can be accessed using the drop down menus in the upper right corner: under My Wikitree > Watchlist is almost the last item. Once you find your mother or father on the list, copy the wikitree-ID (your ID is Lucey-26). Edit your profile and attach your parents to yourself, the rest of the tree will be attached also. Then from your profile (or any other) in the drop down menus (the second menu headed by the wikitree-ID) There are several ways to see your tree - like "compact tree" and "dynamic tree"

Hope this is the information you were trying to ask for.
