During my searches I have created trees of people with the same surname but not proven links to my own.
Rather than waste them by leaving them on my computer I want to post them for others to use.
I know Ancestry has trees like this and my tree on Wikitree only allows your own tree to be posted, so, some help / direction would be useful?

You could create your own website?
See: www.vanstoneweb.co.uk for example.

I have found tribal pages a good site to use.
You can choose how private you want your tree to be and can invite people to view your trees or they can request an invitation.
There is no limit on how many individuals you can put there and you can pay for an upgrade. I have found it quite easy to use.
Good luck with that.

How about putting them on familysearch. They make millions and millions of records free to genealogists so its kind of giving back (and in a lot of cases you will be able to link them to their records).

Hello,
Thanks for a great response!

Thanks KGarrad for the  Vanstone website example, really nice and clear of how to do it! Mine is coming along as they say but I will keep what you have done in mind.

Thanks davidft for reminding me for giving back to the community. I have used their site a lot in recent years so that will happen eventually, beyond my own website.

Thanks to Jackiemh for the suggestion of Triabal pages. This site has a lot of potential. As well as potentially loading more than one tree, it has multiple ways of clearly displaying the information for others. I am going to sign up and give this a try. I will report back when I have got to grips with it.

Thanks again to all of you for fastracking me!
