How do I use the data from my gedcom upload to create a persons profile?

+2 votes
I uploaded a gedcom file but can't work out how to create/edit a new person profile on my tree using the uploaded data.

I already have my data in my own database with sources and I see what I am doing in WikiTree as a duplication of effort.

Hi Christine, Do you still need help?

I am not sure if the link Doug posted is of use to you or not, but in the new GEDCOM system WikiTree uses, the first goal would be to reject or accept all possible matches. The end result would be that your entire GEDCOM list is either matched to existing profiles, or blank (no suggestions or matches).

Once you reach that point, you will see an Add button for each profile. From the Help:GEDCOMpare page:

You add people one at a time after confirming or rejecting suggested matches.

Thank you. I did understand the second post and was able to add. However I've decided not to continue with Wikitree. I do appreciate everyone's responses and help but I'm not enjoying the process.
