Yes, when you find a profile with a surname you are interested in, just click on the profile manager's name and send them a message. Most times they will be happy to hear from another kin that may just happen to be a cousin!!

Well I can't seem to find siblings of my grandfather it's somewhat hopeless haha, I know all the info on my grandfather I just can't see if he has siblings
Stuart, post a question here with the data you have and we’ll take a look. Name, dates, places.
Sometimes just googling the person's name with birth and death years, you will come up with a FAG profile which in alot of cases gives the siblings. Also googling might bring up an obituary with the person's relatives listed. (That's what I do alot when researhing). Googling also brings up newspaper or book articles on people concerning their life events, for example a marriage or birth of a child.
I posted another question with his info and he hasn't passed away so far as I know
Im sorry but Wikitree forbids questions about living people. The G2G don't have the same privacy as regular profiles also the discussion of living people would be a violation of the GDPR
He's my grandfather.........
Perhaps you can ask for help finding the deceased children (if any) of your (presumably deceased) great-grandfather?
Great suggestion Thomas
