No family tree on ancestry.
She can do a free world tree and other add their info and it helps others fill in the blanks on their trees.
Also it is great to add photos and others can see what they look like.
I always add photos to ancestry.com our family tree..
...........................................
All I found was find a grave, and someone in the family should do a free tree.
