My GED report didn't show 5 possible matches with every person.

In the instructions for importing a GED file, it says to make sure to go over the 5 possible matches for each person.  Most of my people didn't come up with any possible matches.  Do I need to try to download the file again, or are there just no matches for my people?  I even clicked on the spyglass to search, but for the most part there were no possible matches.

Thank you,
Jessica

Some people do see many matches when they review their gedcoms in gedcompare, so they need to be advised to go over every match for each person.

If you don't see matches for most of your people, don't worry about it -- it means that your people are probably not in WikiTree yet, making your review task easier.
