I still only see me in my original tree and not any of the 1100 names in my Gedcom. Someone, please advise.

Hi Elena, nice to meet you.  Welcome to WikiTree :)

I checked your Contributions list and found where you had uploaded your GEDCOM file.

Currently you are on step # 2.

Your GedCompare Report is ready for you to view and manage:  https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:UploadGedcom&action=review&gu_id=91819

Just follow the prompts and instructions and everything will work out great.  You can select which ancestor profiles in your GEDCOM match existing profiles on WikiTree so that those can be skipped and no duplicates are created.  When you feel the report is ready and all criteria listed have been met, then you can submit the report for approval from WikiTree.  After they approve, then at that time you get the final decision whether to create the profiles here or not.

After importing, you can connect those profiles to your own.

It is even easier than it sounds, and well worth the energy invested.

I hope this is helpful.  Please let me know if I can do more.

Have a super day!

Hi Elena,

It looks like you might have already done some work on your GedCompare report.  When you are done with it and satisfied it is ready, then at the bottom of that same page you want to find and click this button:

APPROVE: I UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE AND WANT TO IMPORT

Your Gedcom should not create or update any profiles that already exist in WikiTree including your own. If it does for any reason, any new profiles should be cleaned up and then merged into the existing profile.

The aim here is for one profile for each person.

Hope that helps.
