Are they living people with Unlisted privacy?  Those would be visible only to you and people on their Trusted List.  Otherwise, did you make the appropriate relationship connections?  They could be present, but not connected.  A link to an example profile would help.

There are currently several people showing in your tree. We can see your parents and two of your grandparents. Are you missing someone specific?

No they are deceased, I have added both of my grandmothers and a couple of others and they do not show. The information is there, just not in the tree.

Glad to see you got it to work, Michael.  You are most welcome!  yes

Looking good Michael. You are reaching the stage now where you need to check for existing profiles before you go further back so you can be sure not to enter any duplicates.

Make sure that when you add a new profile, it is linked as a parent and child to someone in your tree.  If you add great-grandpa, but don't connect him to grandpa, he won't show in your tree.

Tverberg-2 is setup as the spouse of your grandfather, but not as your mother's mother.

On your mother's profile, click the Edit tab.  On the right-hand side, scroll down to where it says [add mother].  In the WikiTree ID box, enter Tverberg-2.  That oughta do it.

You have added the marriage on Driscoll-998 but no children. If you add the appropriate parent-child relationship she will show on your tree.
