ive uploaded a Gedcom file but its not showing as my family tree
can anyone help?
Thanks for submitting a gedcom!
I cannot say certainly but believe submitted gedcom are reviewed before any possible change in the Tree. I do not know the 'review' process. I do believe you may find your submitted tree under Search> Genealogies - where these types of submissions have typically ended up in the past.
I hope this helps!
genthusiast1 is correct on where you find the GEDCOM you uploaded
These article may help you learn how to proceed, once the GEDCOM is ready for review.
You may find more information in our Help Center ( circle with the ? ) using search term GEDCOM
Cool! Thanks for educating me on the 'review' process!
It looks like once you get the email that your gedcom is ready - YOU get to do the review process. 👍
There are two important things to keep in mind regarding GEDCOM files uploaded to FamilySearch Genealogies:
First, when you upload a GEDCOM file to FamilySearch, the information becomes available for others to search in the Pedigree Resource File (PRF). This occurs from within the Genealogies.
Keep in mind that once you have uploaded a GEDCOM file or an entry to the Pedigree Resource File, it cannot be edited. To update this information, delete the current file and then submit the updated version.
Secondly, after you upload your GEDCOM file to the Pedigree Resource File, you can transfer the information to Family Tree. We do not typically recommend that you do this, since the information may already be in Family Tree. Transferring the information from a GEDCOM file can end up creating more work for you or someone else to do:
Important: Before you transfer information from a GEDCOM file, make sure that it contains information that is not already in Family Tree.
