Hi, I am trying to up load a gedcom exported from ancestry. I can ope the file in PAF5 and in other gedcom packages, but wikitree keeps falling over and telling me that the file is empty.

 

Any suggestions?

I see one GEDCOM upload from you, and the GEDMatches report is ready, which means the next step is for you to review it and skip people in it if necessary. You should have received an email with this link, but you can see your report here: http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:UploadGedcom&action=report&gu_id=5796

John:

It can generally take upwards of a day or two for your uploaded GEDCOM to appear in the WikiTree due to the current high volume of incoming traffic and the fact the the administrators of this site do some careful screening of incoming uploads (which I understand to be a manual process) in order to protect the integrity of the incoming data as well as the WikiTree.

Also - please read this excellent response by Lianne Lavoie on this very situation as it may also apply to you: http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/7537/there-is-no-family-tree-on-wikitree-from-my-gedcom

Please be patient and try back over the next 48 hours.  By then it may be up in the WikiTree Profiles.

Thanks for your interest in the WikiTree!

Just bumped this so user John Donovan will get another email and because it fully explains the situation:
