Gotta agree, Lizzie. I’m in the same boat (not computer literate... much). If it was too easy, it’ll all be crap, if you’ll pardon me for expressing it like that. It takes work to make good profiles, to know how to merge and connect. Otherwise, we could all just throw up gedcom and forget sources, and just copy Ancestry trees just because someone said so. (I’ve got a “grrr” story about that!)
So, yes, it can’t be too easy, or it wouldn’t be worth it.
