Thanks for your reply. Two of those trees are mine and I know a few of the people who own some of the others, but they are not closely related. I prefer not to copy from public trees anyway, as there are always too many errors in them. I have all their marriages and children from the BDM indexes. The only one I don't have the marriage for, I will purchase his death record to get the details. What I really want it to actually make contact with the descendants to find out the stories that you will never find in a public tree. As kids we knew some of them but over the years we have all lost contact. The last family get-together was in 1980 for my grandmother;s 100th birthday. This post is to rebuild those contacts if possible.
