Some of the people in my GEDCOM were not included

+2 votes
Some of my ancestors are shown, but not others. My maternal grandmother for instance. Do I have to check whether they appear elsewhere on Wikitree and then link them to me?


Help please!

Could you have accidentally skipped your grandmother when you sorted through the GEDMatches program? Have you checked your watch list for her?

Hello Adri,

If I were you I would first go back to your own source for the GedCom file.
What is the program that you use when off-line?
Was your maternal grandmother set as "excluded" there?
Make sure that the GedCom export has access to all information available to you.

I say this because I think locating the missing people on WikiTree might be an ever bigger task than making sure your off-line data is fully available...

Kind regards,
