I have found significant information in the  relationship finder. I am wondering if you can tell me how to merge  Godin-820 with my tree, Goodine-41? I want to include the information from the  relationship finder and I extended tree. I believe it said it went back 30 generations.

I hope that makes sense?

If I understand your question correctly, you want to connect your tree to Godin-820. To do that you need to continue adding your ancestors until you reach the point where you can connect your ancestor to the family of Godin-820. At some point that will happen if you are related. Be sure to source your profiles as you go to verify that each generation is correct. There are no shortcuts to connect until you reach that point.

Welcome to WikiTree!! I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have.

Howdy Lynn, no sure if I understand your question.  If relationship finder showed you a link between you and Godin-820, then you are already connected on the tree, otherwise it wouldn't show a relationship.

In fact, when I just checked it, it shows that you are both descendants of Andre LeBlanc (LeBlanc-71), so you are both connected.  There is only one tree and we enter our genealogical data until we connect as Virginia mentioned; which apparently you have already done.  Generally the finder means it can search back as much as 30 generations if the first level of search doesn't reveal anything, but no need to since you already have a much closer relationship.  Hope this helps and I didn't just muddy it up even more for you.
