Mistake made in uploading Gedcom

+5 votes
I have added my Gedcom comprising of 214 individuals of which only 190 have appeared due to me skipping them.I am assuming that this was because i have a previous profile that i need to merge with myself.

Question 1 - Can i merge the previous profile and bring with it the people that i have previously entered?

Question 2 - How do i get my ancestors to appear in my tree?

Help please!

Hi Ian, If you skipped 194, it should be because they already exist on WikiTree. It appears that you figured it out since you asked the question.

In any case, you need to connect the profiles you have to their existing parents. Start on a profile you have that needs parents. Go to the edit tab. Scroll down until you see relationships. Click add/edit parent and follow the directions unless you already know the WikiTree ID for the person. Once you've selected the right individual, save your changes.

Hi Iain,

I'm working on getting your two profiles merged but I have to merge some other duplicates first. I'll let you know when I'm done.

Hi Iain,

I've got your two profiles merged now so you should be good to go. If you have any questions let me know.

thank you, you are very kind!
