How to add or update genealogy family tree on your site as s new guest?

I recently joined as guest. I found my Great Grandfather: John Wesley McAllister on this site. It does not include other verifiable family members, such as my Grandfather: Walter Guy McAllister, nor his son-my father: Henry John McAllister, or myself and siblings. However, Ancestry.com, as well as My Heritage genealogy sites do. I am new on this site and have been unable to become a volunteer to be able to edit (add) to the family tree of my ancestors. Very disappointing and frustrating in my trying to add myself and other verifiable family members to a person your site has only limited information of.

Shirley, I'm sorry it took a while to get you confirmed as a member. Unfortunately we don't have enough Greeters working and sometimes it takes more time that we'd like before all volunteers are confirmed as family members. Another member has confirmed you, but he didn't have the information to give you regarding the New Member Tutorial. I have added a message on your profile which includes that information. I think it will help you get started with working on WikiTree.

If you need any help, please let me know.

Hi Shirley,

I just upgraded your status to "family member" so that should help you do more here.
