Why can I not receive England based information of U.K. ancestors?

+5 votes
My tags are

Roberts (tons of info for U.S.A. Roberts, nothing for Welsh)

Tattersell (again  nothing from U.K., apart from the Lower connection)

Cameron (hard to again information from 1700 - 1800, apart from U.S.A)

Sambrook (again nothing forthcoming from the U.K)


What is the problem gaining information from the U.K.?  I have asked this before, it was suggested I add U.K to my Tags, I did, nothing happened.

Thanking you in anticipation

Given the proportion of American Wikitree users to British users, it is not surprising there is an imbalance. All you can do is to keep adding those British ancestors.

This, honestly. The best way to get more U.K. info is spread Wikitree to more U.K. people. That absolutely increases your chances.

The tags enable Wikitree to report recent activity to you. If there is no recent UK activity on those names then nothing will be reported from the UK. There is no combined effect, so adding the UK tag will not have filtered your name based feeds in any way.
