Not quite sure I understand the question?  You can upload a gedcom file to import the family names, details.  Any information on a flash-drive - if it is purely information - would need to be added individually once the profile is created?
Hi.  So if I understand you, a file on a flash drive (containing only written material) cannot be copied and pasted to a profile biography.  The information in the file must be entered "manually", just as it was put into the file on the flash drive.  Thank you for your input.  Schamp 109.
Hi Bruce, you've not stated the format the information is? word doc? .pdf. .jpg??
Yes you can copy and paste from a file into the wikitree profile.

a flash drive, is a small portable "disk" that typically plugs into a usb slot, and then shows up as an extra hard drive (D: or E: or something like that, depending on what type of computer you're using)

it can contain a number of files -- word docs, excel spreadsheets, images, etc.

You would have to open one or more of the desired files, using an appropriate program designed to read said files, in order to extract the information (maybe via copy/paste) into the target profile bio.

I'm sure, this may raise more questions in your mind. Feel free to ask them. We'll help you as best we can.
