Did you ever find this?   I have been working on my Canadian tree and the Martins are coming in.   I've been using ancestry but am closing my account at the end of the month.   I'm going to see what I can do about uploading the gedcom, as i have over 100 trees, but the big one for dna, there's no way I can upload that.   Anyway, I'm working on the Culberts right now and the Martins have come into play.  And freakishly, the Martins are in another Canadian line of mine, so I'm wondering if they'll link up.  My email is margaretbooking at  I'm back in the mid 1800's to early 1900s.
