He is notable and he is not connected to the global tree.  I have about 50 of those.  You can try to connect him by adding his parents and siblings and spouse etc. until he connects to someone who is connected to the global tree.

Thanks.   I get the drift.

Do you mean that you need an explanation of that the suggestion means ?

Or do you mean that you want someone to help you connect him up to the big world tree ?

Thanks... principally I wanted clarification on this, which I am now blessed with.  Assistance with connection would obviously be appreciated, but not that I haven't really begun researching the subject's ancestors yet...

Well, I'm finding lots of weird information out there with lots of conflicting ancestors. Not surprising with unsourced family trees.

Wikipedia says he was born 1927 - died 2010 - was the son of George Walls and Philomena. Husband of Eunice. Not sure of source. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Walls

My Heritage might have a few clues, but they have him born 1926 - died 2010 - son of Reginald William Walls and Helen Gladys Vera Hooper. Married Philomena Bernadette Mary Lawler. Again, not sure of source. - https://www.myheritage.com/names/george_walls

I did find a copy of the My Heritage tree (unsourced) showing the same info on Family Search - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:3K8Z-4TG

I'm hoping there's a grain of truth throughout this whole scattering of unsourced material, but its hard to say at this stage.
