Current Gedcoms Under Review

Gedcoms Needing Work

Many of these Gedcoms contain England profiles that need varying degrees of attention, but most will need proper sources. Biographies can be as long or short as you prefer. You may find a heap of duplicates associated with the various profiles, and some will just need the gedcom link removed.

You can pick whichever Gedcom you wish and work on any profile(s) within that Gedcom. Each will have 2 links: the first link is to the England profiles in that Gedcom, and the second is to the entire Gedcom, so you can see where profiles may overlap counties, countries, or even continents. Also, if there are any profiles that are missing "England" in the locations, they will show up in the second link.

Gedcom Help

If you are unfamiliar with working on Gedcoms, the following should be helpful:

What can be deleted and what should not be:

The easiest way to clean up Gedcoms is by using Rob Pavey's Wikitree AGC extension, which does everything automatically (except removing the Gedcom link). If you are not using this extension, please continue below:

"Gedcom junk" - which magically appears on profiles once they are imported from a Gedcom can be deleted with care. Please see help file for gedcom cleanups if you are unsure what can or can't be deleted.

Gedcom link - while this link is in place, the profile will continue to appear on the gedcom list. It can safely be removed once the profile is complete. If, in the future, anyone wishes to refer back to the Gedcom, they can find the information in the changes list.

The links (shown here in italics) usually look something like this and usually appear under Acknowledgements.

  • WikiTree profile Gorrell-4 was created by Barron-198 through the import of ''Barron Family 1st Feb 2011.GED'' on 2 Feb 2011.
  • Thank you to Dudley Hicks for creating WikiTree profile Couche-4 through the import of ''Philip Cole Bowdens family tree 2013-09-03.ged'' on Sep 3, 2013. Click to the Changes page for the details of edits by Dudley and others.

Category:Gl120368.ged should be left on the profile and indeed added if the profile refers to it in the Acknowledgements or change log. This Category is specific to another project and was created to hold the profiles in one place.

Personal Categories such as "Ling-1181 adopted profiles" should also be left. Once the profile has been completed, take a moment to contact the person in question (you can find their profile by searching for the ID) and letting them know the profile has been completed and would they like their personal category removed.

Please DO NOT clear out all the text and categorize it as "X County Unsourced."

Thank you for all you are doing to sort out these Gedcoms and for making the England profiles as wonderful as they can be!

Hildebran Family Tree: of the 3 profiles with England connections Ann Osborn-1757 has been found to be a duplicate with Ann Osbran-1. I did not discover that until I had added a bunch of research notes to the first one. I have sent both managers a note to that effect hoping they will merge them after extracting anything from the notes. Osbran-1 has had some good work done.

I have cleared out virtually all of the Hildebran English profiles. I've also cleared out the Passey GEDcom English profiles.

I've gone through the Terence_Blakey_tree_ged profiles, there were 56, I've sourced the ones that I could and taken the gedcom link off the ones that have sources, good connections and apparently no problems. The list should refresh this week. There are a few still that need work, mostly 16th and 17th Century Northumberland and a few Derbyshire / County Durham. Also two private profiles. Marjorie

Marjorie, *thank you* for taking care of those profiles. The Blakey tree is now down to 29 profiles!!!
