How do I find GEDCOM Compare link - says it's complete but haven't received email link so I can work on it?

My question has been asked several times, but the only good answer is to email the gedcom to eowyn -at-  Is that still valid?

Hi Alice,

Yes, you are welcome to email me your GEDCOM and I'll make a fresh one for you and you can give that a try :)
Thanks, but I deleted the link accidently.  I've had the same problem with 3 other family lines, so I'm not able to add the other family lines either.

I found the route to the link for the many people who are having this problem.

From My WikiTree, choose Contributions.

Within the list of contributions you will find:

You Uploaded xxx for GEDCompare

Click on the .ged file link

Within #2 you will find the link:

GEDCompare Report: Complete

Your GEDCompare report is ready. Please click here to review it.

Very long winded and very well hidden but there it is!

I'd like to suggest to the developers that GEDCompare is a link in the WikiTree Dropdown list so we can all find it!


I am having the same problem. I have not received the email even though it says GEDCompare Report Complete.  I also noticed the date for the upload was changed.  I uploaded it on 8/15/17 and this morning it says 8/16/17.

Hi Alice,

In your case, asking here or e-mailing Eowyn would be correct.

(In general, you'd only need to e-mail Eowyn if you've already done the following: 1.) Check your spam folder. 2.) Look in your history of contributions or the changes to your profile ("Changes" tab on your profile). You should see where you uploaded the GEDCOM and be able to click on it.)

Your case is unusual. You're including the URL for your report page in your question. You've already found it. The problem is that your GEDCOMpare report is not linked from it as it should be.

Digging a little deeper ... I see that our system can't interpret your file. It crashed while trying to process it. It's lines like this that break it:

131. Susannah NORTH Martin was the 
132. 4 CONC only
I'm sorry to say that we won't be able to run a report for you. My apologies.
