My Edge GED Compare report.

+5 votes

I got your message about my Edge GEDCompare Report and I have a question.

I just finished going through my Edge GED Compare report again. I'm sorry I had so many duplicates!  So I don't confuse things even more, what do I mark to get rid of the duplicates?  Do I go down the list and put a checkmark in the boxes of all the ones I WANT to keep and the other ones will be the duplicates, or do I do it just the opposite?

Thanks for the help. I'm getting ready to do my Henry GED Compare Report.  Hopefully I'll get it right this time!  :)

PS. One of my first personal projects is to get everything more organized and UTD on my trees.  I love the way y'all do things here, so I'm hoping to make my trees assets instead of liabilities.

I checked and both your GEDCOM files you have uploaded are deleted?!?!?

Lesson learned is that it's better to start creating manually records and learn how to source profiles like Chestnut-271 and see that you understand how WikiTree works and how to create sources that other people understand. 

Lesson learned is that uploading GEDCOMs normally just add problems and most GEDCOMs we see uploaded to WikiTree don't have sources which is a big No No in WikiTree land....

In WikiTree it's better to have 10 profiles well sourced and well written than 2000 unsourced profiles that no one access or care about....

  1. Start add manually records
  2. Learn how to source them and ask for help/advice
  3. When you done that think about next step that could be upload a limited amount of records in a GEDCOM
Good luck and don't hesitate to ask questions..
