Welcome

Welcome to WeRelate, your virtual genealogical community. We're glad you have joined us. At WeRelate you can easily create ancestor web pages, connect with cousins and other genealogists, and find new information.


Video Tour

We strongly recommend that you spend a few minutes taking our video tour. It provides a brief overview of how to use the features of WeRelate. A little time spent here may save you time later. There are also in-depth text tutorials available from the Help button.


Create Webpages

The next thing to do is launch Family Tree Explorer, then select File in the Family Tree Explorer menu and give your family tree a name. You can either upload your GEDCOM or create person and family pages one at a time. To upload your GEDCOM, select File in the Family Tree Explorer menu and then click on Import and choose the GEDCOM file to import. The system will create an editable web page for each person and family in your GEDCOM. To create a page manually, select Add in the Family Tree Explorer menu and click on Add new person; enter the given (first name) and surname (last name), select Add, then fill in the blanks and save.

The Family Tree Explorer is a Flash application and will need to use some space in your computer to cache the files. That's computer talk for "If you store some ancestor page information on your computer, you will be able to view more pages faster. Otherwise, the system has to fetch each page every time you edit or look at it. This would make navigating your tree very slow.


Connect with other genealogists

You should always sign in when you are editing or adding pages. Use the signature button (second button from the right in the menu bar above the edit box) to sign your comments on discussion pages. That way others with similar interests can find you. If you click on the blue user name on any page, you will go to that person's home page. You can leave a message on his/her Discussion page. The Discussion page button is in the light green second level menu bar above.


Shared research pages

Shared research pages act like specialized message boards. Be careful to use only one name spelling and one location in each field; do not use abbreviations. Including postal codes and multiple spellings, names, or locations in these fields will cause your pages to be improperly indexed. It will make it harder for your cousins to find your pages and work with you. For more information see Shared research pages.

who are you and how are you related?--Scubabandit 00:54, 2 August 2012 (EDT)


I was wondering if you would share the obit for Peter Wannamaker as mentioned in your tree? I have him in my tree on ancestry but have not been able to find his obit. I am related through his wife and back to the Jones. Here is Bonnie's memorial and obit on findagrave.com: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Wannamaker&GSiman=1&GScnty=2016&GRid=82498582&

Also, curious if you know why Peter is buried in Cherry Valley and Bonnie in Springfield?

Thank you for any info.--Clover 12:32, 3 September 2012 (EDT)


Death Certificate for William Henry Dobbs [7 September 2012]

Hi,

  You cite a death certificate for William Henry Dobbs, son of Abraham Dobbs and Elizabeth Brate.  Could you share the information on the death certificate?  Or, if there is a website where I can see the death certificate, would you share the information with us?
  Thank you. Our relatives are the Brates, Elizabeth' parents.
  We have more we can share about Elizabeth's family if you're interested.  RG--Rgroesbe 22:37, 6 September 2012 (EDT)
