I'm uncertain about GEDCOM cleanup and would like advice on how to approach correcting the database error [851 GEDCOM uncleaned Interpret date].  Private message ok or reply here if might be helpful to other GEDCOM cleanup weenies.  Also in Palatine Migration project.

Working on database errors I see that a lot, unfortunately...

It is caused by a date format in the gedcom, that the gedcom software might accept but WikiTree does not.   

Personally after seeing the mess created by gedcom imports, I prefer to manually enter my profiles.
