GedCom Pedersen.ged appears to overlap a previously-imported GEDCOM [5 November 2007]

The pages from this GEDCOM have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate.

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM and you want to replace that tree with this GEDCOM, you need to delete that tree first so duplicates aren't created when you import this GEDCOM. Go to the Family Tree page, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the "delete" link next to that tree. Please be aware that any pages in that tree that are being watched by others won't get deleted. Once that tree is deleted you can create a new tree and re-upload this GEDCOM into it. (We're planning to make re-uploading GEDCOM files much simpler later this Fall.)

If you don't think you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM, or if the two GEDCOM's don't overlap that much, leave a message for Dallan or send an email to dallan@WeRelate.org and we'll go ahead with the import.

Germany [2 August 2008]

Thanks so much for all your work with German places. Everyone sharing what they know is what make wikis work.

I am an admin for WeRelate and its my job to patrol edits. I needed to delete the wikipedia templates on Place:Fürstenberg, Baden, Germany and for Place:Au, Rastatt, Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, Germany because there was nothing on the templates. Next time we crawl wikipedia, the robot will create the templates for those pages if there is enough information. You could create templates now if you like by cutting and pasting from the wikipedia page unto a new template page. Please include the wikipedia notice by typing {{wikipedia-notice|title of wikipedia page}} under the {{wp-title of wikipedia page}} on the place page.

Thanks for all your help. If you have any questions or comments please leave me a message.  :)--sq 11:11, 2 August 2008 (EDT)


Duplicates in your GEDCOM? [12 June 2009]

Greetings, I'm a volunteer for WeRelate, helping to de-dupe the tens of thousands of duplicate pages. You have contributed a GEDCOM that has multiple duplicates in it. For example, I found three instances of the family Christian Danielsen and Bertina Pedersdatter all in your one uploaded tree. I hesitate to merge such duplicates when they are in one file, and you know your data best. Please log in, select "Show duplicates" from the "My Relate" menu at the top of the page and work your way through your duplicates. There are plenty of people here to provide assistance if you need it, including myself. Thank you very much. -- jillaine 11:42, 12 June 2009 (EDT)

Seeking help with Russian/Ukranian places [8 December 2013]

I see that you have some knowledge of the Russian language and history and wonder if you could help me sort out a few WeRelate place names.

I have German Mennonite ancestors who lived in the Chortitza Colony, the Bergthal Colony and the Molotschna Colony in what was Russia but is now the Ukraine. I am trying to determine if existing WeRelate place pages refer to these colonies, and if so, whether any are duplicates (under different political structures).

This is what I am finding for Chortitza:

Place:Khortit︠s︡a, Ekaterinoslav, Ekaterinoslav, Russia
with alternate names:
Chortitza
Verkhni︠a︡i︠a︡ Khortit︠s︡a
Place:Verkhna Khortytsya, Zaporizhia, Ukraine
with alternate name:
Verchn'aja Chortica

Based on the alternate names, it looks like these might refer to the same place - although I don't know if what they refer to is the Chortitza Colony, or the village of Chortitza within the colony, or some place else. (The colony included villages called Chortitza, Nieder Chortitza, and Insel Chortitza, as well as several others.) (Later note: Checked my notes and discovered that 2 villages within Chortitza Colony later merged and became Verkhnyaya Khortitsa, a suburb of Zaporozhye - so I think that answers that part of the question.)

I know from Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encyclopedia Online that the Chortitza Colony was in what is now Zaporizhia Oblast, Ukraine, and from a map, that it was in Ekaterinoslav when it was first settled in 1789.

This is what I am finding for Molotschna:

Place:Molochna, Melitopol′, Tavrida, Russia
with alternate names:
Molotschna
Prishib
Place:Molochansk, Zaporizhia, Ukraine
with alternate names:
Molochans'k
Moločansk

In this case, I'm less certain about whether or not these represent the same place. The location of the latter (Google Maps) looks like it might have been part of the Molotschna Colony. I don't think there was a village named Molotschna in the Molotschna Colony (at least Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encyclopedia Online does not list one).

According to this background material, Molotschna was also in what is now Zaporizhia Oblast, Ukraine. This article also refers to the "Molotschna or Prischib district" - it appears that these are 2 different names for the same district. This article also says that both the Chortitza Colony (founded 1789) and the Molotschna Colony were in what was the administrative district of Taurida at the time - although a map from another source clearly shows Chortitza Colony in Ekaterinoslav.

I have not found a WeRelate place page that looks like it might represent Bergthal Colony.

In case it helps, there are maps of the Mennonite Colonies here. Map 40 Mennonite Colonies in South Russia shows the location of the 3 colonies I am interested in. (You'll have to download it, save it, and then rotate it to see if properly.)

If you can help me sort this out, I would really appreciate it. I would like to add village names to each colony before uploading a GEDCOM and matching place names. Thanks --DataAnalyst 02:50, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

I have since resolved this issue.--DataAnalyst 23:07, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
