I think I am ready to upload my Gedcom file but I hesitate to do so until I better understand the proper use of the Multiskip selection. How do I ascertain if I should skip ancestors or descendants of a particular individual? I had very few matches to my family lines but I don't to upload until I understand how to eliminate duplication to the greatest extent possible. Thank you for your advice!

Hi Marie,

The multiskip just helps you select a family line if it appears that most of them already exist on WikiTree. GEDCOMpare isn't a thorough search so it's likely to miss duplicates. The goal is that it will find at least a few of the members of a family. Then you can look at the family members' profiles on WikiTree and see if they're all there. If they are, use the multiskip selections. If they're not, you might just want to skip the individual.
