I find this extension so useful for importing my family tree and for updating old profiles. One improvement I would like to see is the ability to bring across a fuller source link, but it does enough to get a profile started.

Doesn't work the way the description says, only "Update an Existing WikiTree Profile" using ancestry/ FamilySearch source proforms currently Create Related or Unrelated WikiTree Profile from ID doesn't work on my computer (it was working over a year ago), when I push "Go" it takes me to an empty create a new profile form with no data automatically entered

As someone noted, this doesn't transfer the actual data sources, but has a link to the profile on FamilySearch which has the sources. Wikitree also misses some of the exclusionary data that would prevent false matches (like matching someone who was born and died in 1809 with someone in the 1870 census) but overall, excellent! Good work, thank you!!
