Wow! great work. Thanks for your contribution. Welcome to the WeRelate virtual genealogical community. Here we can learn from each other, work together and find what we need to make our research easier, more rewarding and fun.

You can create a free homepage, Surname in place articles and Personal research pages. Surname in place articles are the next generation in message boards: they can be organized and edited. Personal research pages are password protected wiki pages: visible to the community but editable only by you. Check out family pages (all you do is fill in the blanks), annotated pictures, and pedigrees with color coded migration maps.

I moved your Person:Halewijn I Van Leiden (1)to Person:Halewijn Van Leiden (1). We only use Given and Surname to title person pages, it makes it easier to connect with your cousins who might not have the middle name, title, prefix or suffix.

Just FYI, I noticed you Surname in Place Ceccarossi in USA, South America, Italy. Surname in place pages go into a special category. Your cousins may be related to your Ceccarossi in Italy but not the Ceccarossi in US. It's better to have a page for that surname in each country. You might also like to have a Ceccarossi page without a country in of South America. People tend to search on countries or not at all.

If you are new to Wiki's, you may wish to check our many help and tutorial pages. Or, you can select edit on any page to see how the formatting commands are used. You may also be interested in Recent Changes. Here you will see a list of all recent edits. Please help by deleting any spam or inappropriate material.

We are adding new features and material, frequently. Your comments would be greatly appreciated at the Watercooler. If you have any questions, please email me. Again thank you for participation. Enjoy! --sq 11:03, 25 November 2006 (MST)

WeRelate is a free public service website sponsored by the Foundation for On-Line Genealogy, Inc. (a non-profit organization) supported by your tax deductible donations.

Thank you! I've also added Person:Tjerk Hiddes De Vries (1) who was a brother of one of my ancestors. He has a more definite history and a large supply of sources, so creating an article was a bit easier the second time around.

GEDCOM Missing Persons

Hi, we just noticed that there are some references to some people that are mission in the GEDCOM you uploaded, including:

  1. Husband and wife of family married 10 Jan 1830, in Sommelsdijk, Holland with the following text: In attendance at marriage were grandparents Gerrit Smits and Johanna de Vries, and Jan Koopman and Johanna de Haas
  2. A child of Alfred /of Wessex/
  3. wife of Jan /Hokke/

Also, we're missing some images that are referenced in your GEDCOM:

  1. Image for Jantje /Van Dijk/
  2. Image for Nellie /Otte/
  3. Three image references for Nellie /Buis/
  4. Image for family married on 13 Jun 1896 with husband "John /Hoff/" and wife "Attje "Agnes" /Kuiken/"

Do you know of any reason why this information would be missing? -Nathan 14:59, 16 March 2007 (MDT)


I'm not sure why it's missing, but I will definitely look into it as soon as I can view the GEDCOM in the Family Tree viewer. So far, it looks like a tree loads, but then nothing is viewable. I'm still trying to figure out why.


If you want, we can upload your GEDCOM without the missing information, and then you could fill in the holes. -Nathan 10:16, 17 March 2007 (MDT)

Image Naming [7 October 2010]

Hello, I noticed that you've added the following image: Image:Stamp.jpg. You might want to re-load this image and use a more unique name, since the name you've used will most likely be over-written by someone else, since it is a very common names.

Please keep in mind WeRelate's Image Naming Guidelines (included in the Frequently Asked Questions):

How do I title an image? You may use any title you like. Please use a unique descriptive title. The title needs to include a dot jpeg or other image designation. However, keep in mind that if you choose a common title like Grandpa.jpeg. The next person who to use the same title will over write your image. Next time you are at grandpa's page, you may be looking at a stranger from a different era. :)

Thanks much,
