When importing GEDCOM do all names import that are not matches

+8 votes
I am waiting on my GEDCOM 61753 import. Out of the 214 names there were only 38 suggested matches. After matching or rejecting all 38 the import has started. What happens to the 176 other names that I didn't have to do anything with? Will they be automatically imported since there were no possible matches? or should I start adding my immediate family now?

Hi Patricia,

It looks like you still need to click at the very bottom of the page to import:

Patricia's GedCompare Report awaiting Approval


I hope this helps :)


Ok I did this again. It shows steps 1-3 are complete but 4 is incomplete. Do I have to wait another 48 hours?
Ok after I repeated steps 1-3 again and getting GEDCOM 61804, I am still waiting from 2/29/16 still shows this

Import Approval by Patricia Daniel: Complete

Import Approval by WikiTree: Incomplete

I have emailed twice and not gotten a response. Can someone out there tell me why? I am sure it is something I have done wrong, but without an email response I have no way of knowing.

This is my last activity feed.

19:00: You uploaded My Daniel_Butler Tree_shortened_2016-02-28.ged for GEDCompare

Is there a backlog or a computer problem or just plain ole me?


ok found out it was me and Eowyn is helping me to get GEDCOM imported.

Everyone that you did not skip will be imported.

Isn't there an automatic skip of profiles of a certain age (1700?, 1500?), when it's imported?
Everyone born prior to 1500 is skipped automatically.  And submitters are asked to manually skip anyone who doesn't have either a birth or a death date.
