Getting into Wiki

+7 votes
Hello Everyone

I have my Tree in on computer with Relitively Yours program, but did have on Brothers Keeper, but with a couple of MOVES and same with computers BK Book is missing so its been RY3 since, BK was EASY to move around in RY a little to learn to get going, but now things are getting better to handle.

My Tree is online with,,  it was with MH I saw WIKITREE link, so here I am with Wikitree, could not upload my GED file as extenstion was wrong, dont know why I have never had this before

So I decided to hand enter MY side of my Tree to Wikitree, seeing I just found out that My GrandFathers two older Brother went to the WW1, one was unfortunatly unable to come home, here in Australia and in New Zealand, (my Birth Country) last year there was a BALLOT for something to go the France, now being closed its going to cost for a 14day trip $6000.00 :(:(

getting to MY WIKI I was later told to change the Extention so I tried to make a NEW *.ged file of which did happen in Myheritage, with ME NOT Remembering a small *.ged file to sart with up loaded a :( a larger one and thinking WIKI is mainly US and may have been SOME LINKS to OTHERs in my TREE - THIS is where I am now in TROUBLE

Sorry to say I sort of read most of Wik uploading, but nevertook it ALL IN, and now I have MESSED up big time

1. do I delete my hand entered names( 5-6), yes Wiki does not like this and keep the Wiki ID number for other NEWER NAMES that might come along that I may get.

2. of my 650+ suggested Matches that I have been able to go through and browse, I found maybe 100 othe People with SOMETHING the same, have wrote to some got some replies back

I have enjoyed my time with Wiki, but do not or will not see MY Tree

ITS a matter if I do this what will happen or I do THAT this will happen, doe enough damage so far so I am SITTING ON IT " like FONZIE" till I find AN EASY WAY OUT of this.

I will try in the future to keep on the ball with anything I may be do

if this is TOO LONG to read then don't waste your time

 more later perhaps

Hi Graeme!

Sorry you are having such a frustrated time!  My suggestion would be to split your GEDCOM into smaller segments and upload/import them one at a time, working on one and getting it fully imported and cleaned up and then starting on another one.  This will give you a chance to get familiar with the process and more with WikiTree without being too overwhelmed by so many profiles to manage.  Here's our help page on splitting GEDCOMS:
