Hi - I don't work with gedcoms, so I'm not much help. But maybe WikiTree Help will be?  see http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/GEDCOM_FAQ and http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/GEDCOM

Good luck!
hi Liz, I am still asking more questions.. I do not think I have a GED files so how would I get my     information that I already have from My  Heritage .com to wiki tree. I tried but it did not work. I do not understand the instructions I get. I am interested but  would need hands on to go through with it.
Hi Martha! I still don't work with GedComs.... What instructions did you get? These?

Hi Kay,

Does your file not end in .ged?

You might try exporting from Ancestry again. They may have other export options, besides GEDCOM 5.5.
