Thank you for posting your question in the Community regarding your Family Tree.
When you first create your Family Tree, and you are in the landscape view, you find yourself in the main position with your ancestors on the right and descendants on the left of your screen. Thereafter, when you sign in, your tree will open to the last ancestor you viewed. This can be confusing as it seems part of your tree is missing.
To get back to the root person (yourself) you can click on the Recents tab and click on your name, which is always at the top of the drop down menu. If you are in the Landscape, Fan, or Portrait view, you can also click on the Home Icon, found in the upper right corner of your screen.
We hope this information helps.
Sorry if this sounds petty, but it is a common mistake within FamilySearch to call all relatives (even those for which there is no evidence of a relationship) ancestors, as you do above. The term should only be used with reference to our (direct) descendants.
A common definition of an ancestor is:
"One from whom a person is descended and who is usually more remote in the line of descent than a grandparent."
Most users carry out work in Family Tree on individuals who are not their ancestors. So, the last person viewed is quite likely not to be an ancestor.0
CJTobler is offering good, general advice here. Follow this to get back to yourself and you should then be able to view any ancestors / relatives you have added using yourself as the base person.0
