Hi Marja,

There is nothing wrong with slow (smile). I added my own that way at first. If you decide to try using a gedcom at some point we have a help page for that. If you have any questions I'm usually around. Have a great day!

Hello Karen. Thanks for the greeting. I thought I put up tags for three family names, Coons, Peck and Fuller, but I’m not sure they actually got submitted. Could you tell me if I need to try again? I would love to volunteer, but am not very familiar yet with how your system works. I don’t suppose I can import anything from Ancestry? Anyway, I look forward to whatever I can do. I think this is a great idea.

Hi Marjorie,

Karen is off duty now but I can help.

Your tags did not take for some reason. Find your tags here. You can find more information about tags here. Tags should be single surnames, locations, or genealogical interests related to your family research. Comments should relate to why those tags interest you.

When you are adding tags, scroll down and click the "Save Tag(s) and Volunteer" link in the big green box. That will alert the Greeter on duty who will get you confirmed. Don't worry, you would only be volunteering to abide by our community guidelines and add profiles for your family. Find out more about volunteering.

You will be able to use your research from Ancestry. To do this you will need to export a GEDcom file from Ancestry. Have a look at the GEDcom help pages. You should find useful info about uploading your tree. If your tree is large you may want to split it into smaller trees to make the task more manageable.

Let me know if you have any questions. If I don't know the answer, I will help you find someone who does.

The splitting of a tree on Ancestry is very time consuming, you have to download your tree as a GEDCOM, then upload it back to Ancestry as a duplicate tree, and remove some of the names until you have 5,000 names or less. Then download it again as a GEDCOM then upload it here. Then do it all again for the remaining names.

If you use Chrome there is an extension you can get, have a look at that, I find it quicker than the GEDCOM.

Any problems, Peggy and I are here to help you

Take care Karen
