Merging GEDCOM profiles

+4 votes



I created a new profile, volunteered and signed the honor code. I then imported and uploaded a GEDCOM, and received an e-mail to confirm that the  import was completed and the profile was created. I reviewed the privacy settings, and am now trying to merge this profile with my existing profile. I get a message stating:   You have GEDCOM uploads that have not yet been processed. The profile cannot be merged until those uploads have  been completed or deleted.

It seems to me that the upload is completed, since I received the confirmation e-mail. I have also dealt with all possible matches. What am I missing?

Lucas, it looks as though you uploaded your gedcom twice  This is the one you imported successfully on May 26   This one is still waiting for you, uploaded May 25. I think if you just delete it, you should be good to go.

Importing a Gedcom is a two stage process. You can search and compare people in your file with the rest of Wikitree, but your file has to be reviewed before it can be fully imported.

You will be notified when the review and full import has happened.

This is because in the past, a lot of Gedcoms have introduced low quality, or even bad, unsourced information, and take a lot of work to undo.

While you are patiently waiting, try creating a single profile manually to get a feel of things and start learning your way around.

HTH, and welcome, Chris
