New member: help with GEDCompare--merge or skip?

My new uploaded GED found two matches in my 700-person data.  But in both cases, my info is much more complete than that in my matches.  I have more ancestors and descendants as well.  If I 'skip', is all that info lost?  If I merge, which info is foremost?

Hi Bob,

If there are only a couple then you can go ahead and mark it as a match and then manually uncheck the "Skip" box.  When your GEDCOM is processed into WikiTree the two duplicate profiles that are created will be set as Unmerged Matches with the two existing profiles and you'll be able to merge the two profiles so all the info you have will be there.  You can only do this up to 10 times in one GEDCOM import though.

Thanks Eowyn.  I've approved my gedcompare and will fix it all when wikitree approves it too.
