Trying to find ancestor

I think the site is a great idea. However, I think there are too many "mandatory" details to fill in. I have just started trying to do my Family Tree and I don't have all these details - but maybe someone can help me, which is why I am doing this! I can't fill in all the fields yet. Would surname not be enough and the other fields as optional. That way we can fill in the gaps as we go along.
