I uploaded a gedcom which, it turns out, is too large to be approved.  How do I take it down, or must I wait for the 30 days to expire?

Thank you.

Hi Rosemary,

Here's the link to your GEDCompare report: http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:UploadGedcom&action=report&gu_id=69930

Up towards the top you'll see a link to delete the GEDCOM.

Note: The reason it says your GEDCOM is too large is because it isn't recognizing any sources. I looked at the raw data and can see that you do have plenty of sources but for coding reasons they aren't picked up by GEDCompare. It probably recognizes them as notes not sources.

100 individuals with no sources is the technical cut-off with our system so if you split your GEDCOM you'll want to do it into smaller segments than that.

Let me know if you have any questions.
