Welcome

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 profile, Shared research pages and Personal research pages. Shared research pages are the next generation in message boards: they can be organized and edited. When you create a Shared research page title on your home page, the link will appear in red. Click on the red link, enter a message and save. (Creating a title for the page is not enough, your cousins can only search for pages with content.) If you type in the name of the town or county you are interested in with a comma, you will see a list of standardized names for all the places with that name, worldwide; select the one that applies to your research. These standardized names are used in "research categories" and will directly link you to research sources relevant to your research in those regions. Category links are at the bottom of each page. Standardized place names also make it easier for cousins to find your page. Personal research pages are password protected wiki pages: visible to the community but editable only by you.

Person and Family pages are up and running. Take 10 minutes to see video tutorial/tour for people pages. You can view sample person and family pages (all you do is fill in the blanks), annotated pictures, and pedigrees with color coded migration maps. Check out a sneak preview of our new Family Tree Explorer, With this tool you can easily navigate and add pages to your famliy tree, view descendancy trees and ancestral trees for each person and view a sortable index of your tree.

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 could click edit at the top of this page, for example.) 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


GEDCOMs Re-uploaded

Thanks for using WeRelate!

It appears that you uploaded two GEDCOMs to a single family tree:

  • RM_Fencl.ged
  • RMFencl.GED

Subsequently, it looks like you deleted that family tree and tried to re-upload both of the GEDCOMs. Unfortunately, we don't have the merge funcitons working quite yet, so our program blocks duplicate GEDCOMs. The question is, how can we help you fix your family tree(s) at this point? We have a few options:

  1. Undelete the original family tree you created
  2. Put each of the GEDCOM's pages into the two separate family trees
  3. If you don't mind that there are duplicate pages already on the site and you've made significant changes, we could let you start over and upload your GEDCOM(s) again

Just let us know which option you prefer.

GEDCOM delelete ready next week

We apologize, but we've been delayed in completing the GEDCOM delete functionality in our program so that you may delete and then re-upload your GEDCOM. We should hopefully have this functionality ready by early next week. -Nathan 11:07, 24 March 2007 (MDT)


RM_Fencl.GED is being held for review

The pages from "RM_Fencl.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 Overlap.ged are different from 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 RM_Fencl.GED, we need to ask for your patience. We don't at present have a way to auto-merge people from multiple GEDCOM submissions, so if RM_Fencl.GED includes people you have previously imported, importing RM_Fencl.GED will create duplicate pages that you will have to merge later by hand. In the near future we will allow you to delete the pages generated by your previous GEDCOM submission and start over with a new GEDCOM. Until then please be patient. We will notify you as soon as deleting pages is available.

Facts on person pages

Hi. I noticed you had a lot of facts on some of your pages. Wow! You have done some great research. I don't know if you care, but you can include 44 different kinds of facts in the fact section with as many alternate opinions and multiples instances as you like. There is an add event/fact button under the fact section and a down arrow next to the new field. If you click on the arrow, you can page through the different types of facts. So if someone had 5 occupations, you could put all of them in the occupation section. Just thought you'd like to know.  :-)--sq 10:17, 11 April 2007 (MDT)

RM_Fencl.GED is being held for review

The pages from "RM_Fencl.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 RM_Fencl.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 RM_Fencl.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.
