I uploaded a small gedcom to add to one of my grandparents on my tree and the names don't show up on my wishlist.  Also, when I do add her id to my tree do the rest of her ancestors follow her and get added to the tree automatically?

Uploading a Gedcom here on WikiTree is a multi-step process. The first stage is called the GedCompare, where you compare your tree with what's already on WikiTree to eliminate duplicates.

After that, then you start the process of actually importing the records.

You're still at the first stage:

Hi, I already did the gedcompare, and accepted or didnt accept the people it came up with.  So now what?

ok, then... I've haven't personally tried the new process since is was recently modified, so I'm a little unclear on the next steps... but it looks like this outline should help: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:GEDCOMpare

If not, check back here, and I'm sure someone else with more experience will be able to assist
