Can I manage a separate account profile for my wife?

+7 votes
The reason I ask is my gedcom file is HUGE!

I decided to manually create my Burton family tree, but think it would be a great idea to make a separate one for my wife's family. Her maiden name is Koreen.

So far I have created a Koreen name study, that is all. There were no results for a name search for "Koreen". Looks like a new surname for the WikiTree.

You may also be wondering if you can or should split a GEDCOM. In a word, yes. Read the following before you do anything, if you haven't already:

You may indeed create a separate profile for your wife. Just go to your profile and click the Edit tab. On the right-hand side you will see a link to add a spouse. Click that and enter the information for your wife. You may then add her family members to her profile in the same way you added yours to your own profile.

You can also add your wife's email to her profile, making her a Family Member if you wish.

First - do yourself a big favor and wait before uploading a huge gedcom.

Almost 4 years ago I uploaded what I thought was a small gedcom - only about 4500 names.  It took me over 3 years working almost full time to clean it up to meet Wikitree guidelines.

I strongly suggest,

First review all the detail on gedcoms.  Upload a gecom of no more than 50 names edit them - at that point make a decision about how to move forward.
