User talk:Dlongmore

Great page, Thanks for participating :)



Hi, and wow! You have done a very impressive job with the Ellen Longmore page. You have done a lot of research and its great you want to share it. Thanks so much for participating. I moved the Given:Ellen Longmore page to an article just for Ellen Longmore. You really deserve your own article. I'm afraid it will get lost if attached to the given names :) I will be at the BYU conference this week and at the FGS conference in Boston at the end of the month. If you're going to be there, please stop and say HI, I'd like to thank you in person. --sq 14:53, 31 July 2006 (MDT)

Licensing

Hi, WeRelate will feature ancestor pages in a few weeks and GEDCOM uploads about December, 2006. Ancestor pages will make posting biographies very simple. This has brought up some licensing issues. Please read Licensing issues discussion page and give us your opinion. Thanks --sq 16:08, 14 August 2006 (MDT)


Ancestor Pages

Hi Dan, Looks like you are going to create some person pages. We should have Person and Family pages up by the end of the month. GEDCOM upload will be functional in about 2 mos. -- then it will automatically create Person pages and Family pages. If you have any suggestions for format, contents, etc., I would appreciate the feedback. Again, thanks for participating.--sq 22:36, 11 September 2006 (MDT)

Family Tree Explorer

Hi,

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 23:33, 20 January 2007 (MST)


Gedcom Upload

Thanks for uploading your GEDCOM! We found some bugs in the first batch that we uploaded, so we're fixing them and we hope to have your file uploaded by the end of tomorrow (Wednesday). -Nathan 21:57, 13 February 2007 (MST)



Images and LDS ordinances in gedcom upload

This is just a quick note to let you know that we saved the filenames of the images referenced in the gedcom that you uploaded. In about a week we plan to provide an easy way for you to upload those images to WeRelate if you want to. Also, we saved the LDS ordinance information and will provide a way for you to view and edit this information also in about a week.--Dallan 14:58, 18 February 2007 (MST)

Rogers tree

Hello dlongmore! Our paths seem to have crossed somewhere around Family:John Tisdale and Anna Rogers (1) (mine) and Family:John Tisdale and Anna Rogers (3) (yours). We both have the entire Rogers tree extending back from there. Any thoughts? --Joeljkp 16:28, 15 June 2007 (MDT)

That is someone on my wife side. I just recently imported a GEDCOM I have had around for years thinking maybe of benefit to someone on her side. I know next to nothing about the family. It seems like a potential merging of trees to be done.Dlongmore 16:35, 15 June 2007 (MDT)
Would you like me to take care of it? I have a copy of The Mayflower Society's official book on the Rogers tree. I just need some guidance on what to do if I reach some conflicting information. --Joeljkp 16:51, 15 June 2007 (MDT)
I would be happy for you to. I will try being of whatever guidance I can be. Dlongmore 16:57, 15 June 2007 (MDT)
I'm seeing some discrepancies in dates (like in Person:John Rogers (1) vs. Person:John Rogers (39)), and none of the ones in your tree are sourced. Would you have any knowledge of where these came from, or should I assume them inaccurate and use mine? A third option would be to copy yours into the merged page as alternate info and leave them unsourced. --Joeljkp 22:19, 15 June 2007 (MDT)
(I went ahead and merged them. If you don't think the unsourced data is worth anything, I can remove it later.) --Joeljkp 22:37, 15 June 2007 (MDT)

Possible duplicate family

Family:James_Longmore_and_Mary_Worthington_(1)

Is the link above a duplicate family? I also see a James Longmore and Mary Worthington (2) family that has more complete information on the family (marriage, children, etc.). If the family with index number (1) is a duplicate family page, you can delete it. It also appears that Person:Mary_Longmore_(2) can be deleted.

Mary--Kittydoc 13:48, 17 July 2007

How do I delete them. I would like to know how. There are times I get duplicates out there and would like take care of it myself. Thanks Dlongmore 20:15, 17 July 2007 (MDT)
Sign in and go to the James Longmore and Mary Worthington (1) page. Edit it so that there is at least some additional content on it (it will disappear with the page itself)--I usually just add a random letter in the main text box. Once you've put something on the page, however small, and saved it, you will now see the green Delete tab as an option. Click Delete, then Submit. You can add a reason, such as "duplicate page." You can repeat this process for any other duplicate pages. The key thing is that there has to be something on the page (besides just the name(s)) in order for the Delete tab to show up and function. Let me know if you have any trouble. Mary--Kittydoc 05:38, 18 July 2007 (MDT)

Mark Snow and Hannah [28 August 2008]

Your GED upload has created a marriage of Mark Snow and a Hannah. There is no marriage date, nor any children, and most importantly no sources, other than an Ancestral File, which in turn has no sources, so amounts to little.

Mark Snow is reasonably well-covered in literature (e.g., NEHGR 47:84) and in reviewing information, I have found no mention of a wife Hannah. This is not to say there absolutely isn't one, an indefensible position, but that to present such a non-standard fact requires supporting sources.

I know Mark's will, as presented in Mayflower Descendant, 18:194, mentions his wife Jane (Prence) so the marriage to Hannah and her probable death would both have to be after his wife Anne's death and before his marriage to Jane (i.e., in the years 1657-1660), or possibly before his first marriage to Anne (i.e., bef. 1655). Do you any records of either the marriage or death of Hannah?

Dupes in your own GEDCOM(s) [12 June 2009]

Dlongmore,

I'm volunteering for WeRelate, helping de-dupe the family and person pages. I found Family:Marmaduke Darrel and Anne Leonard (1) and Family:Marmaduke Darrel and Anne Leonard (2) and see that both of these are associated with you. Could you please spend some time checking your file(s) for dupes. It's not very difficult. Simply log in, select "Show duplicates" from the "My Relate" pull down menu (upper right) and work your way through the steps. Several people are here-- including myself-- to help if you need it. THanks! jillaine 12:05, 12 June 2009 (EDT)


A UK or england portal [19 July 2009]

Would you be interested in establishing a UK or England Portal to help raise some interest in WeRelate among UK centred researchers ? I note how a Uk and Aus portal has helped sites such as ancestry.

Theres a danger that UK researchers migh look at WeRelate and think it is predominantly US centred (OK it might be but we could change that)

Duplicate families [3 December 2011]

Hi Dlongmore,

When you have a moment, please take a look at your Duplicates List by going to My Relate>Show Duplicates. It’s a good idea to check this list on a regular basis. There are a few families there that are potential matches. We have an ongoing site-wide project to merge duplicates, but it is always better if somebody familiar with the families can make the merge. Here is our help page on merging. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks! --Jennifer (JBS66) 18:05, 3 December 2011 (EST)


Source - Longmore Consulting ? [4 August 2012]

Hello,

I hope you do not mind but I edited (took out the link to a webpage) a Source you created which seems to be a nogenealogygy website that you had linked on the WeRelate Source section? If I am in error please do contact me, Dallan, Solveig, or another admin to clear things up, and to roll back the Source page. Thanks Debbie Freeman --DFree 16:31, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

James Andrew Crystal [9 March 2013]

I have been very bold and changed the birthplace of James Andrew Crystal who, according to his WR page, was born in Boreland, Scotland. Normally the county and parish is given for any village, but it was missing I went and looked up James Andrew Crystal on FamilySearch. No birthplace or baptism, but he was in Dysart in Fife, aged 7, in the 1861 census. Then I went to a gazetteer and found a reference to a village of Boreland in Dysart. Keeping my fingers crossed I adjusted his birthplace to the more precise description.

Believe it or not, you are not the only WR member with someone born in Boreland--only the other member's ancestor came from Boreland in Dumfriesshire! It's a pretty common Scottish term. I know of a third place, but it is no more than a farm with a name.

Hope you don't mind my making this adjustment, but I did want to establish the existence of both villages and link them to the WR Persons.
