Hello Joanne.

If you want help/advice, you need to put some dates & locations, even if just a rough idea.

Have you tried using Freebmd to look for births, marriages and deaths of family members?

Read the replies on your other threads................which include the year of your parents' marriage!

And try to do some can't really expect your tree to be done for you.

And bear in mind that if your tree is on GR, you must not include in it anyone who may be living, unless you have permission.......from every individual
