How can I complete adding profiles from GEDCOM upload?

+4 votes
I successfully reviewed all proposed matches of a GEDCOM upload.  However, when I click add, the profile for Smith-133338 opens  and tells me I do not have permission to edit this profile which is not actually linked to anyone in my tree.  For example, my GEDCOM 96971 has a proposed profile for Lillian Pearl Beard. When I select ADD, the profile for Victory Smith opens  for which I am not a trusted member, and for which I have not relationship.  Lillian's line appears to be grayed out somewhat. The same thing happens if I use the proposed profile for Harmon Troy Morrow.  What am I doing wrong?

Perhaps it has something to do with Victoria Smith being a living person?
Perhaps I was not clear.  Victoria Smith is nowhere in my GEDCOM and is nowhere related to my family.  I have no idea why a completely unknown person would show up like this.... and for every person I try to add.
Mike, I had this problem as well. Refresh/reload your gedcompare report and try again.

The new gedcom upload program is a beta program and it's important that Chris, Ales & Eowyn see your message to work out the kinks. Email and put "New Gedcom upload" in the heading.

Hi Maggie. Actually, I think G2G is a good forum for this.

Try using the refresh button that has helped me. [gedcom] [gedcompare]

I tried your gedcom and rejected one suggestion, that wasn't the match. Then I got the Add buttons and clicking Add for Lillian Pearl Beard I got Add an Unrelated Person

So I can't reproduce your example. Can you try it again? Before that close your browser and open the browser again, so all pages are refreshed.

Apparently closing and reopening the browser did the trick.  Thanks.

I am thoroughly impressed... the development team has already corrected this bug and it is now loading wedding data and place from the GEDCOM.
