I've been maintaining my own records at http://www.gerwitz.com/genealogy/
Too many of my records are (relatively) unsourced, based on hearsay. I hope to merge my direct ancestry into the "big tree" for more solid connections.

If you have any brick walls, collaboration might help bust through. Because WikiTree has only one profile for each person, the further back you go in your ancestry, the more likely cousins will find you and help out. ANY Wiki Genealogist can edit "Open" profiles (over 200 years old = open). There's also a brickwall tag in the G2G forum: brickwall
The help pages give lots of information about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.

I noticed you plan to or already uploaded a GEDCOM. Here's a link to instructions on the step-by-step gedcom import at WikiTree , including screenshots that you might find helpful. You might also want to check out our gedom instructions
Please keep in mind that our vision is to build a collaborative tree with just one profile per person. Thank you for taking the time to go through your gedmatches at WikiTree when you upload your gecom.
TIP: if your ancestor was born over two hundred years ago, there's a very good chance she/he already has a profile on wikitree.
