The new "Import Gedcom" utility seems to be working just fine. I'd given up on hearing from anybody, but recieved an automatic notification email last week announcing the "new capability." I gave it a try, and it worked smoothly. It's too bad that it's so inflexible, however. It would be nice if the upload could be configured like the World Connect Project allows. It's nice to be back in business again, though. Glad it's fixed!!
The best way to add information to your family tree from SmartMatches that you received is to use the Contact Webmaster link and get in touch with the webmaster of the family site where you have matches. That way, you have a good chance of getting more information than you may have thought available and you will be able to verify the validity of data added to your tree. Not to mention, it’s always great to make new acquaintances with people who share your family history.
In order to create a family tree which is editable online, create a gedcom of your family tree and then use the Import Gedcom link on the Family Tree page of your family site to upload your gedcom. This will create a tree that you and your site members can edit and add to online.

I have uploaded my gedcom file (which I created from my family tree and "Imported" it via the Import Gedcom link on the Family Tree page) but I cannot edit it online? I cannot find any options to edit the gedcom tree online?? How do I edit my gedcom tree? Where do I go to edit it?
Please help, I have posted several queries on how to edit my gedcom tree but so far have received no answers. Please forgive me, and don't take this as a complaint, it isn't, It's just that I've seen your above message and am now trying, in vain, to edit the file.
