Your profile and Changes log do not indicate that you added your DNA test number. Here is a link to review for DNA tests: Help:How_to_Get_Started_with_DNA .

For GEDCOMs, WikiTree uses a system called GEDCOMpare . With this system, your GEDCOM profiles are not automatically added to the tree. Instead, you have to process your GEDCOM, comparing your GEDCOM profiles to potential WikiTree matching profiles. After you have completed the comparison process for all the profiles in your GEDCOM, you can then add new profiles for the unmatched GEDCOM profiles (you can edit matching profiles as you work through the comparison process).

However, only Wiki Genealogist members can actually edit and add profiles from a GEDCOM. To be able to process your GEDCOM, you will need to sign the Honor Code and become a Wiki Genealogist.

Aloha and welcome to WikiTree

Here is a place to start https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:New_Member_How-To

Since I donʻt see any ancestors attached to your profile, it looks like you have not completed the steps in entering your Gedcom information. I have not used Gedcom, so cannot advise you, but you will be able to find information in the Help section, and someone will come along to help with that.

GEDcoms are not autopopulated here on Wikitree.

You will have to do some more work.
