Welcome to the WeRelate virtual genealogical community. Here we can learn from each other, work together and find what we need to make our research easier, more rewarding and fun.
You can create a free homepage, Surname in place articles and Personal research pages. Surname in place articles are the next generation in message boards: they can be organized and edited. When you create a Surname in Place title on your home page, the link will appear in red. Click on the red link, enter a message and save. (Creating a title for the page is not enough, your cousins can only search for pages with content.) Personal research pages are password protected wiki pages: visible to the community but editable only by you. We now have a 10 minute video tutorial/tour for people pages. You can also check out person and family pages (all you do is fill in the blanks), annotated pictures, and pedigrees with color coded migration maps.
If you are new to Wiki's, you may wish to check our many help and tutorial pages. Or, you can select edit on any page to see how the formatting commands are used. (You could click edit at the top of this page, for example.) You may also be interested in Recent Changes. Here you will see a list of all recent edits. Please help by deleting any spam or inappropriate material.
We are adding new features and material, frequently. Your comments would be greatly appreciated at the Watercooler. If you have any questions, please email me. Again thank you for participation. Enjoy! --sq
Family Tree Explorer
We just launched a early release of the Family Tree Explorer. In case you'd like to try it out, I've taken the pages that you've created and added them to a tree called "mytree". So when you launch Family Tree Explorer, you should be able to click on File then Open to view your tree. I'd be interested to get any feedback you have. We're going to be working on it intensely over the next several weeks, so this is a great time to have some input into how it will turn out.--Dallan 23:34, 20 January 2007 (MST)
