Family Search shows sources, but why don't they come up in Roots Search so I can attach them?

When I look up William Henry Kelley on Family Search (L5DH-L65), there are 5 sources - a marriage, a land grant and three census records. But when I search him in Roots search, only the marriage shows up. (Weird!!) How can I find and connect these sources to the Wikitree profile?

Pam, probably the search you did directly used different search criteria than the RootsSearch feature, giving you different results.
Change the RootsSearch criteria. Since it found Marriage, try removing the wife’s maiden name. Then remove mother’s maiden name. Then remove parents. Widen date ranges. Make locations less specific. Constrain search by state, if you know it

Did he go by Henry or William? Try searching for both.

Copy and paste the sources directly from Familysearch. They have citations underneath for that purpose.
