I want to connect my Gedcom to my grandfather, not to me.  The instructions given are to go to your profile and adjust something in the second column.  I can't see what to adjust or how.  My grandfather's profile is already entered as Kay-638 in my Watchlist.

After uploading your GEDCOM, go to your navigation home page: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Home . Click on the link for your "Watchlist Activity" where you will be able to see all of the profiles which were created by your GEDCOM. Choose a profile for one of your grandfather's immediate relatives. Click on the "Edit profile" tab. From there, you can connect this person to your grandfather by choosing to add a parent, child, or sibling, depending on your grandfather's relation to them. At the top of the new profile page, there is a prompt asking if the person you would like to add already has a WikiTree ID, and this is where you put in your grandfather's WikiTree ID. Save the profile, and your grandpa is connected to the people in the GEDCOM. Hope this helps!

Thanks for this answer.
Great answer, as usual, Erin.

Prescott, if the GEDCOM creates a duplicate for your grandfather you can merge it http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:MergePerson into Kay-638.

If you don't know the WikiTree ID, you could use the search icon on Kay-638 to find it and then click the merge link from there.
