Should I confirm all names on my GEDcom report by clicking "skip"?

+6 votes

I did go to a member who had helped me on the following question:

I asked another member of Wikitree and was told this:

  You're beyond my area of expertise on these.  I would suggest contacting someone from WikiTree or perhaps their G2G Forum (available from the Help menu).

My question is about the GEDcom comparison page:

I did as you said and left duplicates blank. I clicked that I accepted all and was finished.   A  notice said I should confirm all names.  Each name that I did click on the yellow button confirming the name, a check mark went on “skip” automatically . I went back and clicked skip on all others so they would accept the GEDcom compare list.   Did I incorrectly click “skip” on all others?  What does skip mean?  Maybe I should of checked the circle to the left of the names.  I feel that this is a major mistake.

When you choose skip that means that person will not be imported after gedcom approval.  

you skip if the person already exists on WikiTree so there are not duplications.
