A possible second Family Tree on Genes Reunited?

About 1995, I made contact with the LATE Richard Stephen Body (1904 - 1997), about his Body Ancestors. Richard, who was known as "Dick", had traced his Ancestors back to his Gx2 Grandfather, John Body (circa 1774 - 29 August 1850), who was probably Born, in SUSSEX. However, "Dick" was convinced that his earlier Body Ancestors were probably Cornish. Unfortunately, "Dick" was never able to prove that his earlier Body Ancestors were Cornish. "Dick" had prepared a very comprehensive Family Tree, giving many of the Descendants of his Gx2 Grandfather; including himself and many of his Relatives.
Is it possible for me to start a second Family Tree, on Genes Reunited, for "Dick" Body's Family Tree, in the hope that other Researchers will contact me about them?

Of course it is!!!

Just not on the same membership that you currently have ....... although GR staff say they are working on this possibility.

At the moment, you have to take out a FREE membership, using another email address, account name and password.

The Free membership allows you to build a tree, look at posts on the Boards, and respond to members who contact you.

A Free member cannot initiate contact with other members

Many people have several trees, each with a separate account.

Most people take out an email address with one of the free sites ................. eg, hotmail, gmail, etc

Good luck!
