You have begun the GEDCOMpare process, but you haven't gotten very far yet.
You have marked the good matches among your suggested matches, but you have not yet rejected the suggested matches that aren't correct matches. Once you do that, you will start seeing "ADD" buttons next to the profiles of people who aren't already in WikiTree. Until you see the ADD buttons -- and use them -- you will not be importing data into WikiTree.
You may have encountered a couple of common pitfalls in using this process:
- Don't assume that the checkboxes at the beginning of each row will add a profile to WIkiTree. Those checkboxes only indicate that you don't expect to do anything more with a particular profile (for example, maybe you found a good existing profile in WIkitree, or maybe you imported your data to WikiTree, or maybe you determined that you don't have enough info to create a profile with). Checking that box doesn't do anything to the WikiTree database.
- Don't hit the "REFRESH SUGGESTED MATCHES" link at the bottom of the screen unless you want to review additional suggested matches for some of the people in your GEDCOM.
NOTE: Some people decide, after uploading their first GEDCOM and seeing how GEDCOMpare processes it, to upload a different GEDCOM file. For example, they might decide to upload a much smaller file so they will have fewer suggested matches to work with. Or they might decide to go back to the software that created the file to add more dates to the data fields so that WikiTree will have more information to work with in doing the suggested-match process. Or maybe they will upload a new file that does not include a branch of the family that is already well-represented in WikiTree (and gives many suggested matches).
