Uploading a gedcom and "skip" box

+5 votes
44 views

Everyone in the gedcom that I want to download has a check mark in the "skip" column. There are two of the individuals that have matches, two are a spouse but in WikiTree they have no wife or other wife listed so I would be adding that.

The instructions read "The skip checkbox will automatically be selected for matches. This means that the person will be skipped in your GEDCOM import. On WikiTree, we only want one collaborative profile for every person."  However since everyone has been selected does that mean no one will download from the gedcom?  I gather I should deleate the spik checkmark if they are new, correct??

Hi James,

In this particular GEDCOM you won't be able to unskip the individuals. Folks who are born prior to 1700 and those who don't have a birth or death date are automatically marked as skip by the system and that can't be undone.
