Connection list - WikiTree Family News email

+5 votes
73 views
Hi. Every week or so I get an email with the Subject Line, "WikiTree Family News". I look forward to receiving it because it always contains a famous person and how I may be related to them. Somewhere along the line, I must have entered my mother's line (only) in some setting for this, because I only get these types of emails for her lineage. It could be possible that I am related to famous people ONLY through that link, but I have to wonder it I also might have some interesting relatives on my father's side as well. Problem is, I cannot locate where in the settings I can add my paternal line in order to maybe get those types of connection emails. Can anyone steer me in the right direction? Thanks.

if you add more tags to follow them your Family News mail should become longer :)

It appears that you and your family are connected to the rest of the "big tree" only through  siblings of your mother's ancestors https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sanford-2928 and her father https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sanford-1799 . If you add more ancestors, siblings, cousins, etc., on your other ancestral lines, you are likely to find connections with existing WikiTree profiles that may be connected in other ways.
