Next step: Review your GEDCOM [8 January 2014]

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 rozanov.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. We will keep your GEDCOM in the queue for two weeks to give you time to review it.

Note: if your gedcom contains many errors or multiple families, we’d ask that you resolve and correct the errors, delete this gedcom and re-submit it without the errors before merging it with families already on WeRelate. If the gedcom is very large, we’d suggest breaking it up into separate files (or families) and importing them one at a time, which makes the review and correction process easier.

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.

Greetings! [9 January 2014]

Hello There! I was glad to see your interest in Imperial Russian genealogy. Over the last few years, I've added and tidied substantial amounts of European Nobility based on Wikipedia, in hopes that those with both the skills and genuine interest would eventually arrive and have a ready location to attach their efforts. This AM, I've gone through some of the Russian material and tried to be more careful about placing the Holstein-Gottorp-Romanov people into the proper category, as well as a few other things. Looking forward to whatever you might contribute!

Welcome to WeRelate!

Explanation of various edits [9 January 2014]

Hello Alexandre,

I edited a few of the pages that you've added to conform to WeRelate's conventions. I changed some of the surnames that were in ALL CAPS to mixed case. I also moved alternate names to a new line. Here is an example of these changes:

Also, please note that URL's do not work in the source Title field, so I moved these to the Text field. An example of this change is here

Lastly, I noticed the frequent use of Rodovid as a source. As better sources are found for these pages, it would be preferable to replace the Rodovid sources with these. For more information, see Good Source Use and Documentation Practice.

If you have any questions, just let me know. --Jennifer (JBS66) 19:13, 9 January 2014 (UTC)


 Dear Jennifer,

1)OK i will gadually try to change the surnames which happens to be in the GEDCOM file in capital to mixed case. As they are many it may take some time. Thanks for explanation of this rule.

2)OK i will move URLs fro Title to Text field gradually.

3)I agree that Rodovid is not the best source. Whenever i have other sources i will give them in preference.

 But Rodovid is better than nothing. I many places i have put already Wikipedia.

Thanks for correcting these 3 points whenever possible.

   best regards,
                  Alexandre Rozanov--Alexandre 20:49, 9 January 2014 (UTC)


Please don't be overly concerned. There are a lot of conventions and preferences to pick up, and I'ld rather see you dive in and try to do some things instead of being frozen into doing nothing out of worry that you'll violate one of "the rules". I wasn't going to pester you about any of this stuff because I figured you'ld pick things up as you went along.
If you're game to be part of a group effort, and willing to revise things to follow community conventions as you come to understand and your time permits, that's all we really ask. Also, I don't think there's really any sin in a weak source, as long as you see it as a starting point that's better than nothing. I've managed a lot of mileage out of Wikipedia, which isn't all that well thought of as a genealogical source, but of the 19,000 or so pages that I've backed with Wikipedia, only a handful have ever turned out to be wrong to any degree - and Wikipedia is really great for telling the story of a person (not just the genealogical facts).
As I said above - I'm glad to see you here and hope you'll really enjoy it! Best Regards... --jrm03063 21:14, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Novikov [5 May 2014]

Hello

I see you are watching a page which includes my ancestor Marie Harris married to a Count Novikov. Do you have any information on the Novikov family? I am finding it hard to find any documents from Russia. Do you use any other sites I can try for Russian ancestors?

Thanks Patricia

Where do you live?--Oenogal 19:35, 3 May 2014 (UTC)


Hello, i do not remember following Marie Harris or Count Novikov in my tree. May be there is some side effect connection. For russian genealogy there is a good multilaguage site http://en.rodovid.org/wk/Main_Page There are many Novikov on that site, but i do not know if they are related to your Count Novikov.

            Best regards,
                           Alexandre--Alexandre 16:56, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
