Ok I have been working on Doust, Lundin, Cilliers who are all linked to my tree. Now I have been helping another Doust in England to find his family in the hopes that I will be able to link their branch to mine. I have not found the connection as yet, but I wish to add them to Wikitree. is this possible? If so how do I do it?

Tim is correct, you don't have to connect them to anyone. Go to the Menu in the upper right of your screen and click 'Add' then 'New Person.'
Thank you Mindy, that was exactly what I was looking for. I found it now, "the add new person", and I have added the first one, now I will continue by adding his parents and then his ancestors.

Yay! I hope you find the results you are looking for with this new family smiley

Thanx yeh I hope so too, have managed to get to 2nd Great Grandparents all fully sourced. will continue to research after I have added the 4 generations, so excited!

Just add in the profiles with sources as you normally do, checking they aren't on here already. They don't have to link to the main tree. They will form a small tree of their own at first but sooner or later someone  (might not be you) will find a connection to the big tree.
