Need Unconnected Profile Help

+4 votes
Please help me understand why Robert Reed Stephensen, Stephensen-13, is shown as Unconnected.
WikiTree profile: Robert Stephenson

I think I found the problem. The wrong mother was listed, so it made all the siblings show as half siblings. Thanks for your input, everybody.
Dadgummit, it didn't work. Back to the drawing board.

'Unconnected' means 'unconnected to the main tree'.  It does not mean 'no spouse/parents/siblings/children'.

You can tell when he has been connected-to-the-main-tree because he will have links to the current connection anchors at the foot of his profile.

Thanks, Ros, but then how  does one accomplish the connection to the main tree?
You just keep building and building your tree, going sideways for siblings rather than just back and back until you connect up with somebody who *is* connected.

Sandy, there are some hints and tips on the Connectors Chat page which you may find helpful.

Thanks, Greg! I'll check it out.
You're welcome.
