William, when you are stuck on a particular ancestor, you can add them to the Family Brickwall category.

At the top of their narrative section, above the bio: add "Category:Family_Brickwall". You'll need to replace the quotation marks with 2 brackets on each end. Then add as much info as you can into the narrative, including what research you have already done, what you are trying to find out, etc.

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree. You might want to check out the introductory WikiTree video that a member created. OurMentor Team are a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to help you with specific problems if you have any. Good luck growing your father's part of the tree, and thanks for offering to help with our shared tree. Enjoy collaborating on WikiTree.

Yes, others can view the family tree. I'm specifically looking into my father's family, it is the least known branch, much of the rest of the family tree is pretty traceable to the early 1800's. Little success so far, but still looking. Can not get back further than a great grandfather in the 1900 census. Still exploring.
