I downloaded a new ged file to place on wikitree and it must have been corrupted in the process.  I'm wondering how I can upload a new ged file to replace the incomplete one

Your gedcom file is not incomplete. It has over 3400 names, which may cause some problems. Go to your contributions list, scroll down to the gedcom upload. Click on the name of the gedcom. This will take you to the Gedcompare report which must be reviewed before the file is imported into WikiTree.

Thank you for the answer to my question and the great directions on how to do it.  It work like a charm!
You're quite welcome. Glad I could help.
Shirley, wikitree changed its gedcom import process. It no longer imports entire gedcoms. Profiles may be created or updated one at a time through the new gedcompare process. But entire gedcoms are no longer imported. Search for the tag gedcompare for many messages about this change.
I knew this. Just forgot about it when I wrote the answer. Thanks for the reminder.
