Can/should I use first ancestor feature if we are not Chinese? I think it would be helpful for me to not get overwhelmed by so many branches, however I don’t want to disrespect the culture and its intent.
See: https://www.familysearch.org/en/blog/first-ancestor-tree-view "This new tree format is available for anyone who has a FamilySearch account...." There is no restriction or limitation.
Interesting feature. Let us know how it works for you - and how you find it useful.
