For those of you who do not know how to import your GEDCOM file into your existing tree: you can do this by uploading your GEDCOM file to [1] using a different email address than is associated with your existing tree on Geni. After the import is complete make sure your name ([2]) is set the same on both accounts and then you can enter your other email address into your existing profile (additional email at [3]) and it will ask you if you want to do a self merge, which will merge both accounts and trees. If it does not ask you to do a self merge, login to your other account and it will ask you if you want to merge trees.

Note: At this time any one GEDCOM file cannot contain more than 15,000 people. However you could break up the GEDCOM file and repeat this process using a different email address (or after the merge removing ONE email address from your profile to use). See [4] for known issues regarding addresses/locations, maiden names, and more.

Additionally note that you will have to spend lots of time running the merge wizards if there are lots of duplicates. See [5] for concerns and suggestions regarding GEDCOM merging, tree merging, and more.
