I would like to look up a wife who is in the file to see if I have entered all of her children using a Record ID rather than finding her alphabetically,

Do you want to find her from her WikiTree ID (like Nelles-152 or Hayes-5281)?

If you have her ID, just go to any other profile and enter her ID in place of that person's ID in the URL field in the top of the screen. In https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Nelles-152 you would remove the Nelles-152 part and replace it with her ID.
How is the man that you linked to related to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Nelles-16 and the other Nellis/Nelles family members in New York?

It was answered with the same recommendation given by Ellen, which is a solution that works just fine - I use the same hack "all the time". I am also sure I have seen the same question several times before. This time it made me think that it should not need to be asked. There really ought to be an option for it in the searches.

I will try that solution the next time I want to find someone who is the Wikifile.


I will try that solution when I need to find someone in the Wikitree file.

Richard, I've had the same question...glad you asked that because I'm learning something new also!  :)
