Usually there should be a link on this page but I don't see one. I'm adding a sysops tag
I've been trying to join this site all day and i'm more confused then when I started, I still haven't seen a way for me to compare for possible matches and then approve anything. this will be my last try and then I'm out here.

Are you referring to a gedcom Import?

Importing a GEDCOM

After uploading and GEDCompare, if you want to help with our mission to create a single, shared family tree as a Wiki Genealogist, you can add branches to WikiTree by importing your GEDCOM.

Our GEDCOM import process is different than what you might have experienced on other sites. For a great step-by-step guide to the import process, complete with screenshots, see this post by blogger Randy Seaver.


  • GEDCOMs with more than 2,500 people cannot be imported.
  • GEDCOMs with more than 100 people and no sources cannot be imported.
  • GEDCOMs with more than 500 suggested matches cannot be imported.
  • You may import multiple GEDCOMs, but please wait until the first GEDCOM file is completely processed before uploading another.
  • Additional GEDCOM imports will not automatically replace profiles created through previous imports. Duplicates need to be skipped during the GEDCompare process.
  • All GEDCOMs are reviewed by a WikiTree team member prior to import.
  • Individuals born prior to 1700 will be automatically skipped.
  • See Before importing a GEDCOM for important information.
