Finding unrelated people I added to the family search tree
I started a project a few years ago of researching and adding 1885 Colorado census records to people in Family Search. This led to me eventually adding unrelated people to the Family Search tree. For example, there was an African-American family that moved to Colorado by 1870, whose last descendants were still living in Colorado in 1940. I've made thousands of contributions to Family Search. Is there an easy way for me to find the unrelated people I've added to the Family Search tree?
Hello Judy Crook_1 ✭
When you are in Family Tree (FT), you can click up on My Contributions, and you will see all the changes you have made to FT over the years.0
Do you remember who you added the unrelated family to? If so, do a tree search for someone in that family. I add unrelated people to families too if the census indicated they were living there not as lodgers. I even have a photo of one, and I cannot for the life of me figure out who he is.

@jlwestra, that may work for people who visit FamilySearch a few times a year. I'm actually not particularly active in Tree, comparatively, and yet I can only get My Contributions to go back to the end of this past October.0
Thanks for your replies. Ideally, I could just look at all the unrelated people I've ADDED to the tree. I've made too many contributions to find these people easily. I was adding 1 to 2 families a day from the census when I was laid up with a broken wrist. If I became truly intrigued by the family, I added them to Wikitree. It turns out that some of these people, names long forgotten, are still calling to me to add them to Wikitree and more fully research them. My stats show that I made 20,085 contributions in 2020 and 15,549 in 2021, and most of those were to people I'm not related to. I can't figure out how to either download all my contributions or to search by a particular date. Nor how to just look at people I added to the tree.0
Update: The family I most wanted to find again, whom I am not related to and researched randomly one day back in 2020--well, someone asked me a question about them, so I now am researching them in more detail. Maybe this problem I had applies to few other other people because not everyone adds thousands of people they're not related to.0
