Next step: Review your GEDCOM [10 August 2010]

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 WeRelate.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.

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 lines 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.

William Twining Jr [11 August 2010]

I merged Person:William Twining (11) into Person:William Twining (7) because they are the same person. It is a key idea of WeRelate that there should only be one page, i.e., one truth, about an individual. It is necessary for the users to reach a consensus on what is most likely the truth.

It would be kind of difficult for Ann Doane to be his mother since she didn't marry his father until 27 years after he was born. He belongs under his father's Unknown first wife. If you want to argue differently, you need provide sources not just create a page that says what you want. Although only one source is cited for Ann's marriage in 1652, there are others that agree. (P.S.: ancestry, AFN, and most websites unless they give sources are not considered reliable. Ideally the sources cited should reference a primary source like a vital record, a will, a diary, parish register, etc. since everything else amounts to somebody's opinion.)

I noticed you have been adding Primary and Secondary to the description fields. I have no idea what this means, as normally the source is rated primary or secondary, etc., reflecting respectively, if it was recorded while the person was alive, or has it been deduced/copied from primary sources. The place to rate the sources is when you create a source citation. Facts are facts, and do not need to be labeled primary or secondary. If a date is not a fact, i.e., estimated, it should be labeled Abt or Est. --Jrich 20:59, 11 August 2010 (EDT)


Image Licensing [12 August 2010]

Hello, I am a volunteer admin and it's my job to help people learn the system. You asked for help licensing your images. I can't license your images but I can give your guidance. There are numerous licensing options, but most images fall into one of these categories:

  • Original published in US before 1923
  • Low resolution copy of an historical photograph. (When you reduce the image before upload, the resolution is reduced.)
  • Snippet of historical document (Newspaper clippings often fall in this category)
  • Work of US government--Public domain
  • If you took the picture, select the CC-BY-SA
  • If you know the photographer, get written permission.

Hope this helps. Please be aware that images left in the "Help needed" category for longer than two weeks will be deleted. If you have any more question please leave me a message. :)--sq 20:20, 12 August 2010 (EDT)


Henericus Stonecipher/Stinecipher - additional marriage [15 August 2010]

Hello, you've added an additional marriage with an Elizabeth Stonecipher (no parents listed) and three children to Henricus Steincipher, with no dates (marriage date, birthdates, dates of death), sources or documentation. Can you share the source of this additional marriage? The only marriage I show for Henricus is with Catherine Call, abt. 1768, with two sons, Absolom and Soloman.

Thank you,

Thomas & Eppy (WOOD) FAIRBAIRN [16 December 2011]

Hi EJBradt, Wondering if anyone has made any progress in finding a direct male line FAIRBAIRN at the bottom of this tree willing to join the FAIRBAIRN Surname DNA project and see where/if they fit in with the other matching FAIRBAIRNs? Check out the combined project diary for the FAIRBAIRN One Name Study and DNA project for what's new.--LornaHen 21:48, 15 December 2011 (EST)


Titus Doane and Deborah Wilson [6 April 2013]

Hello,

  I have been researching my ancestors and firstly, Thank you for "watching" this tree.


  I am confused about something. 
Titus Doan (1784-1832) -> 4 Children. Following William Doan's family out (missing wife), 1 daughter (Hannah).... it then says Hannah's husband becomes Isaac Doan (1835-1904), whom was born from said William's brother, Isaac Doan (1805-1850).

So first, this means Hannah married her cousin. IS this correct?

Second, is this just HOW it happens, in trees? Now you can follow Allen Clark Doan (1856-1941) and brother Norman Doan TWICE... basically replicated....


Unrelated to that, I have the book, Titus Doan (5) (1727-1803): Cousins & Descendants in ontario. Has that book been used in inputting the information? Can more be added to the Doan Tree? I realize that this particular name tree is dwindling, and many recent branches will be of a different name. Does that matter?


Sorry for all the questions. Thanks for the response when you do get to it. =D

Take care,
