Next step: Review your GEDCOM [13 September 2009]

You're not done yet!

WeRelate is different from most family tree websites. By contributing to WeRelate you are helping to create Pando for genealogy, a free, unified family tree that combines the best information from all contributors.

Now that you have uploaded 9-13.ged, your next step is to review what your pages will look like, review any potential warnings, and combine (merge) people in your GEDCOM with matching people already on WeRelate. You need to review your GEDCOM before it can finish importing.

Once you have finished your review and marked your GEDCOM Ready to import, one of our administrators will review your GEDCOM and finalize the import. This usually happens within 24 hours. You will receive a message here when the pages have been created.

Wife of Edward Small?? [14 September 2009]

Hello, I noticed that you've added an "alternative wife", Elizabeth Chaperwone for Edward Small/Smale:

There has been some speculation that Edward's wife may have been a daughter of Sir Francis Champernoune (note spelling), but note this narration from "Descendants of Edward Small and Allied Families", by Underhill, Revised Edition 1943, by Jim Small ( ):

"[In short, research of English records show no relationship between Edward Smale and Sir Francis Champernoune, (mentioned numerous times by current researchers as "kinsman") and Edward or Francis Smale and Nicholas Shapleigh. Prior to any of them reaching the shores of New England. That they were "kinsman" and the New England Small family was somehow connected to either the Champernoune or Shapleigh family of England through marriage has no basis in truth. That this connection has been researched in English parish records over the past three centuries has still not revealed any connection between these families."]

Do you have some other research to indicate Edward's wife was a Champernoune/Champernown? In other publications, Elizabeth has been listed as Elizabeth Shurt, daughter of John Shurt and Mary Lugge.

Thank you for whatever information you might have.
