What is the easiest way to import sources to a person in my tree that were skipped in the ged import from ancestry.com?

I imported a GED, but the information including many sources was skipped for an individual.  Is there a way to cut and paste or extract a source list to enter into my wikitree from my ancestry ged without having to manually type them all?

I think copy and paste is your best approach. Once you are in edit mode there is no problem pasting. If you want inline references the right most button with a C on it will gif you the <ref> tags you can paste your source in.

And perhaps the easiest way to get the sources out of your offline genealogy program is to generate a narrative report where the citations are included, then cut and paste from that into wikitree as Helmut describes above. That's what I'd do.
Do I re-import the ged and copy from there?
No. We can't re-import. Open the gedcom in your desktop genealogy software. Generate a narrative report. Copy paste from there.
