I have family information on "FamilySearch.org." Is it possible to import that data to this site? Thank you.

I use Wikitree X now to transfer my FamilySearch research to WikiTree. I LOVE it.

all of my ancestors are documented, Wikitreex needs improvements, so does all other apps. I wished I could up load all of my tree at once,  I wished there was ways to Upload from other sites also.   Wiki tree also needs to import all from family search and documents, and start linking up.

Hi Marybeth,

Welcome to WikiTree.

The short answer is YES.

However, there are a couple of ways to accomplish this and neither is considered easy or straight forward if you have not done this type of thing before.

Until recently, the best answer was to manually copy and paste information.  It was the preferred method if you only had a few profiles to work with.  With larger groups of profiles, WikiTree offers GEDCOM imports.  This is not direct, you would need to move your Family Search profile to a GEDCOM and then import it to WikiTree.

Recently we have introduced WikiTree X.  This is still new and there may be quirks but it is pretty effective if you use Google Chrome as it is an Extension for Chrome.

Please let us know if this helps you or if you need further help.

If you have profiles for the people on wikitree already then you could use Roots search to transfer source information, but familysearch.org does not support exporting GEDCOM files so that way would not work. As Michael states in his answer it might be possible with WikiTree X but you would be creating profiles one by one and you would have to use the Chrome browser with the WikiTree X app.
