Hi. I am David Bruggers, husband of Denise Dahlgren, and I have been working on our families' genealogy for several years using MyHeritage.

I was attracted to the commitment to using sources, and I have gathered lots of sources, but they are arranged in the notes sections of people in my tree and in documents that I have stored in my hard drive. I was hoping to find an easy way of incorporating these sources into the WikiTree.

Despite my slight sense of floundering with how to navigate here -- and problems with my gedcom not uploading -- I am most impressed by this site.

Welcome to WikiTree Gaijin! We are happy to have you here.

Question about your GedCom - how large was it? Try uploading a small GedCom at first - maybe 100 people and see how that goes. Once they are through the GedCompare process, then upload another one. Or you can enter each person manually. At some point, you will probably find that one or more of your ancestors have already been entered here and you can just connect to them.

We look forward to having your ancestors added to our tree.

Yes Welcome to the Wikitree family!

Virginia is giving very good advice, be sure to start small, because as you get to the 1700s you will probably find your ancestors already have profiles.  If you have uploaded too much you're going to spend all your time matching and merging with existing profiles... and it can be overwhelming amount of work.
Thank you for your answer -- very helpful.
Most grateful for your helpful answer. I will give the small uploads a try.
Thank you, Loretta for the Best Answer star! I appreciate it and am glad my answer was a help.
