Wanted pages lists broken (red) links in the order of most commonly occurring.

Category:Sources Needed lists pages where someone has identified that sources are missing. Ideally such a list would be automatically produced, but for now this is what we have.

Currently Featured Task

Old GEDCOM Davisfam2000 has been run through a desktop genealogy program editor to find errors (such as person born when mother was 1 year old) and potential errors (such as person born before parents were married). The list of errors and potential errors is below. Review and see if you can fix any of these problems. (NOTE: Ignore the number after each name - it is just the number assigned to the person by the desktop software.)

Tasks that Require Significant Research

7 Aug 2016: Clean up an old GEDCOM (uploaded in 2007 or 2008 by a user who has not contributed since 2008).
The following trees have many pages without a birth year*, some of which may represent living individuals. See if you can find (or estimate) enough information to preserve the pages (a death date or a birth year before 1907). If not, add the speedy delete template. These trees are also sparse on sources, another area for improvement. See the "Improving Quality" instructions on the old GEDCOMs Talk page.
  • Beejayel (1) (441 unknown birth years) - living individuals have been dealt with
  • Beejayel (2) (126 unknown birth years) - living individuals have been dealt with
  • Bobsmythe (213 unknown birth years)
  • Bware752 (88 unknown birth years)
  • Bwhaley (252 unknown birth years)
  • Califgmom (199 unknown birth years)
  • Carlton843 (44 unknown birth years)
* Note that currently, the facet on the left that identifies pages without a birth century includes pages with a christening date instead of a birth date. Don't add a birth year to these pages - we hope to get the facet changed to take into account christening dates.
10 Feb 2017: Select a given name/surname combination that occurs many times in WeRelate without dates and find or estimate a birth year for each occurrence. This helps future contributors when they add yet another page with the same name to focus on possible matches that are at least in the correct century. Before deciding to estimate a birth year, read the guidelines in Help:Date Conventions (you might choose to use "Bef" instead).
To find commonly used given name/surname combinations without dates:
  • Search for people
  • Select the facet (left side of the screen) for Birth Century is unknown
  • Select the facet for one of the top 10 surnames
  • Select the facet for one of the top 10 given names
Some of the resulting pages will have christening dates - these can be ignored.
14 May 2017 There are over 10,000 Person pages with the name Living in the title. Many of these are for people who are, in fact, deceased. It would be best to find the actual name and death information for these people and rename the pages accordingly, so as not to give the impression that WeRelate hosts pages for living individuals.
Caveat: Living was actually used as a legitimate given name (in at least two known cases on WeRelate, and possibly more), and so, as in all corrections, be sure to read any posted evidence prior to assuming a correction is needed.
If you research a page and determine that the person is still living, add this template:
{{Speedy Delete|[[Help:FAQ#Can_I_create_pages_for_living_persons.3F|Possibly a living person or family]]. Pages for living people are not permitted on WeRelate. Please either add death dates and source information or delete this page by clicking on more > Delete.|<date>}}
where you substitute <date> with the date you add the template.
You may choose to start with old GEDCOMs. If you do, you don't have to add the speedy delete template to pages where the person is still living. Instead, when you have finished fixing all that you can for the tree, leave a note on the old GEDCOM page that all remaining Living pages in the tree are in fact for living individuals, and I will delete the remaining Living pages. Note that all trees up to Genealogist84 have already been handled. I am currently working on Genealogist84, so select a tree after that.--DataAnalyst 18:52, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
Hint: Find A Grave is often a good resource for information on recently deceased people. Be sure to give credit by citing it and include the Fgravemem template to create a link.

Tasks that Require a Moderate Amount of Research

25 May 2016: Visit Category:Sources Needed or Category:Source citations needed or Category:Date with no source to see pages that need sources; they currently have links to several hundred. Pick a family or person at random, or one where you have experience, and then see if you can find any primary or secondary sources to add to the page. You may get lucky and find a source for several family members. If you add sources, you can also remove the "sources needed" template from the page. If you find a possible source but are uncertain, add your research to the talk page of the Person or Family for others to see what you found; it may help them to confirm the data they have.
30 May 2016: James Davies and Jane Richards, this family and their descendants to 2001 are a mess, names all caps, lots of facts in the places fields, incomplete places and no sources for most of it. I have tidied their son John and added lots of facts and sources and will add the census details to his family page. They are mostly English and Welsh pages.
4 Jun 2016: Find some interesting pages to add to Featured Page nominations not strictly data improvement but it does give people an idea of what pages can look like. Any pages can be added, not just people, and you can nominate a page you have worked on.
14 Oct 2016: For anyone who is looking to add sources, the tree created by Inator needs a lot of work. It appears to be cobbled together from a number of other trees and most of the sources I have seen so far are WorldConnect and the like. I believe that this tree is largely US-centric and sources are not that hard to find (FamilySearch, Ancestry.com for census records). Inator has been inactive for 8 years, so there is no need to enter the Change Summary unless someone else is also watching a page. I am currently working on Living pages (and related families).--DataAnalyst 15:29, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
12 Nov 2016: Select one of the following sources (or your favorite "love-to-hate-it" source) and replace it with better sources on the pages that use it. See Usage Tips on each source page for why it is not the best source to rely on or to cite.
Ancestry.com - OneWorldTree - a failed automated attempt to do what WeRelate recognizes needs human intelligence.
Torrey, Clarence Almon. New England Marriages Prior to 1700 - should be used as a bibliography rather than a source
International Genealogical Index - mixed reliability
Ancestral File - mixed reliability
Pedigree Resource File - mixed reliability
RootsWeb's WorldConnect Project - mixed reliability, use as a bibliography where possible
Darrellwarner/11-24-03 Hughey-Jacob.FTW - this is a MySource with no further information (there are plenty like this - this one has about 35 links)
Note: This task is classified as requiring a Moderate amount of research because it is assumed that facts are available. However, it is recognized that some situations will require a significant amount of research.
24 Dec 2016 Pick one of the following primary sources (or your favorite source) and see if you can find matching pages in WeRelate that do not cite it. Take care to ensure you have found the correct page (for example, matching on parents' names and/or checking other sources). Enhance the pages accordingly, including citing the source if there is not an equivalent alternative. Consider adding children to existing families based on this source.

England, Cambridgeshire Bishop's Transcripts, 1599-1860 - free online (it appears that no WeRelate source exists for this, as it is likely a combination of other sources)
England, Devon Bishop's Transcripts, 1558-1887 - free online (it appears that no WeRelate source exists for this, as it is likely a combination of other sources)
England, Devon and Cornwall Marriages, 1660-1912 - free online (it appears that no WeRelate source exists for this, as it is likely a combination of other sources)

This task is assumed to require moderate to significant research (to ensure you are updating the correct individual).

Tasks that Require Minimal (or no) Research

5 Sep 2016: Wanted pages lists broken (red) links in the order of most commonly occurring. In some cases, a page could be created to resolve the broken links, but in many cases, the page with the link should be cleaned up so that the text is no longer treated as a link. For example, 896 pages have a place of Farmer, when this is clearly an occupation that should be moved from the Place field to the Description field. Many times examination of the page reveals additional cases of Place field data that should be moved to the Description field as well, thereby further helping to reduce the Wanted pages list. Clean up of these pages would make WeRelate a more inviting place to visit.
14 Oct 2016: A tree submitted by user OliviaRevits looks like it has been subject to a number of merges and consequently has lots of alternate facts. In many cases, there are exact dates with a source and approx. years with no source. There is no value in keeping the alternate facts with approx. years, and it makes the pages difficult to read. This tree is quite small (206 pages). She submitted 3 other trees which can be found on the Old GEDCOMs page, but I have not ascertained if they have the same issue.
Also, many of the pages in this tree have her WeRelate signature (see this example). There does not seem to be much point in that and maybe it should be removed.
30 Dec 2016 The second marriage of Person:Jean Belliveau (1), to Marie-Cecile Melanson, is in WeRelate twice, as is one of their children. Records need to be merged for one or more generations. If inclined, you can also improve the aesthetics of the pages by consolidating facts and moving source information from the narrative to sources.--DataAnalyst 20:24, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
I have completed the duplicate merging, but there is still a lot of room for improvement in the aesthetics of these and related pages. Improving the aesthetics can range from no research (consolidate two identical facts) to moderate/significant research (select between alternate facts).--DataAnalyst 15:53, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
