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.

Telling others about our project

Thanks for participating in your virtual community. --Kopuru 21:35, 3 June 2007 (MDT)


Isaac N Kimber.GED is being held for review

The pages from "Isaac N Kimber.GED" have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate. Please be patient while we take a look at your GEDCOM. If it turns out that the people in Isaac N Kimber.GED don't really overlap people you have imported previously, your pages will be generated right after the review, which should happen tomorrow (or Monday if tomorrow falls on a weekend).

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in Isaac N Kimber.GED, you have two options:

  1. Open the tree containing the information from the previous GEDCOM using Family Tree Explorer and delete the tree, then create a new tree and re-import this GEDCOM, or
  2. If the two GEDCOMs don't overlap that much, leave a message for Npowell. We'll go ahead with the import, after which you'll want to merge the overlapping people by hand.

Tip for profile

Hi, my name’s Christian and I’m a WeRelate admin. I just wanted to give you a quick tip on filling out the information on your profile. When you include names and places that you are researching, you are creating links to shared research pages, or pages that allow researchers to collaborate on the same family lines in the same places. We try to classify these pages by surname and US state or country, in order to have an easy, standard way to begin collaborating with other researchers (ex. Phillips in Texas, not Phillips in Houston, Texas, or Phillips in Texas and Kentucky). If you include just one surname and one state or country per line, it will automatically link to the relevant shared research page, if it has been created by another researcher. If not, a red link will appear on your profile. By clicking on that link, you can create the shared research page in hopes of future collaborators running across it. See Help:Shared research pages for more information. I corrected the information on your profile to the best of my ability. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.--Wrhelp 01:16, 7 June 2007 (MDT)


Next step: Review your GEDCOM [20 March 2011]

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 Bester B Peck ged for 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. We will keep your GEDCOM in the queue for two weeks to give you time to review it.

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 files (or families) and importing them one at a time, which makes the review and correction process easier.

Click here to review your GEDCOM

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.

Margaret Ogden/Angus Terwilliger [16 April 2012]

I wanted to find out if you have any information on siblings for Margaret Ogden's mother, Aceneath Greer. I have a couple of siblings for Aceneath but I have found out that Margaret was a first cousin to my great-grandmother, Cora Greer and I'm trying to connect them together.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Removal of Brundage information [9 March 2014]

Hello - received a couple of notifications that you had been removing parent and spouse connections to some of the Brundage family members, such as Person:John Brundage (11). You did not indicate a reason for your edits and, although it appears that some of the connected pages had not yet been created, the source information contained on some of the pages did verify the connection. Can you fill me in? If you were trying to create the pages and would like some help, I am happy to help. Regards, --Cos1776 21:35, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
