Thanks for the welcoming message -- I feel totally lost on how to get started adding anything to the tree. I'd like to upload a gedcom but have no idea where to find a guide to using the site.

If you can point me to either one I would very much appreciate it.

BTW, I grew up in south Texas.

Hi David, Can you please help me? I'm editing John Arch Earwood, Biography. Him and his wife Sarah have 13 children. As I list them, making sure they're in a straight line, but when I preview, they're all over the place and not straight. So, I close the preview window and save. I go back to John Arch Earwood's profile tree to check the way it should look, and it's not straight. I don't know what else to do.
