Why can't I do my ancestors beyond 1500's?

Why can't I do my ancestors beyond 1500's on the Belgrave, which I am a descendant of? I can go back beyond Richard Belgrave, who would be my 13th great grandfather. I can go back 7 generation from Richard Belgrave

You will be well off to actually add sources to the files you have already created.  Every time you have a fact:  X was born . . . (show how you know this)  He was the son of Y (how do you know?).  In order to get pre-1500 certification, your current profiles will have to be completed with sources (and bios are preferred).

This link should explain it.

Please check the spelling on your tags.  Pre-1500 members won't see it as is.

You probably do not have the pre-1500 certification badge that requires rather a lot of work to show and prove that you know how to find and use sources correctly and that you are active here on Wikitree.
