Eddie Jackson's wife Laura Alline DeVore [30 July 2014]

My father is Melvin Gray. Maude DeVore is his mother. Laura Alline DeVore would be my fathers Aunt. He has had a stroke(2nd one). He was close to Betty Jackson Alline's Daughter. Last known address and phone was in Conyers Ga per my Dad Melvin. He has lost his phone book with her number in it. Is there anyone that can locate Betty Jackson? I know Dad told me she married a Wilson 1951. But she had married several times. They had soke on the phone maybe year ago or so. Dad is the last of Maude DeVore and Frank Gray's children (9) and I believe Betty is the last of Alline's children. They were both born in 1932. I believe she may have been born in March 1932. Dad was born August 1932. She married 1951 and he went into Air Force 1951. I an leave my phone number 352-800-1750 Dad has a phone but his speech was affected by the stroke. Maude died from cerebral hemorrhage. We live in Lake Co FL. Dad is going to move in with me 27135 Pine St Yalaha FL. I thought maybe someone could find her so they could maybe talk to one another. Could be the last time for them to communicate.

Thank You for any and all help in this matter.

Yesterday's hiatus [1 September 2014]

Hi Janiejac

I'm so glad you got in touch with Dallan. As you know, you weren't the only one frustrated by WR's performance yesterday. And Dallan's answer of having given the server a reboot made me smile. The server did need a good kick, didn't it?

Jackson family [11 August 2015]

Hi Janie, My name is Charlotte. Benjamin Denton and Tabitha Jackson were my ggggggrandparents (6 great I think). I have had the "we relate" webiste sitting on my computer for who knows how long. Today I have been deleting files. I printed all the files on Jackson that you listed (16 I think). Sorry I didn't look at site sooner. I am sure you know how we can get carried away researching and get side tracked.

I have traced backed to Benjamin Denton on my family. I don't believe any one has gone back further than Benjamin Senior; if so, I would really like that info.

I just thought I would say hello. Will be leaving for the Holidays in a week but would love to hear from you.

Charlotte

PS: My family is from Benjamin Denton, Jr. and resided in central Illinois/Indiana where he immigrated too.--Lottie 22:20, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Creating cemetery place pages [11 August 2015]

This was first attempt to upload Rockville_Greenfield Cem NY.ged. GEDCOM was removed to work on warnings; also to double check Find-a-Grave for newer posting since this file was first created. May post again later just hoping to find connections to these folks.

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 Richards update.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.

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.

Cemetery pages [7 May 2016]

Hi Janiejac,

I see you've added some cemeteries. I think that's great, but you're missing some elements of creating a cemetery page. I'm going to go ahead and add the needed elements to the newly-created Marcy Cemetery that are missing. If you have any questions, let me know. There are instructions in the Help feature, but some are a little confusing. Take a look at what I add to Marcy Cemetery after about 15, 20 minutes. Regards, Neal--SkippyG 17:54, 7 May 2016 (UTC)


My Heritage & Cem pages [7 May 2016]

Hi ! I agree MyHeritage is a messy problem; I'm fairly sure Dallan will change or eliminate the ad from the body of the person pages. If you have a list of the counties where cemeteries may be incomplete, as a Find A Grave contributor, I'd be happy to review those counties and update them. Recently, I cleaned up cemeteries for Trumbull Co, OH, Stark County, OH, Elk Co., PA, etc. Regards, Neal--SkippyG 20:19, 7 May 2016 (UTC)


Cemetery, etc. update [8 May 2016]

Hi Janie, Quick update. Updated Exeter, Wyoming, PA with a quote from "History of Lackawanna, Luzerne & Wyoming counties, Pa.". Pinned Exeter to the map by placing the borough of Falls and Fitch Cemetery to Exeter. Fitch Cemetery updated.

Tried to find Wilmington Cemetery in Will Co., IL. Wilmington Cemetery must not exist or bears another name, as neither Find A Grave nor Interment has a cemetery of that name. Will Co. has a Will Cemetery, a Williams Cemetery. The oldest cemetery appears to be Oakwood (Old) Cemetery, and the associated and larger Oakwood Cemetery, seemingly in the same approximate location. I guess you'll have to do a quick search in Finda for the person(s) you have buried there.

BTW, I have lots of family in Luzerne & Wyoming, Centre Cos. (Rogers, Thompson, Taylor etc.), a connection to Herkimer Co., NY (Gunn), so updating those cemeteries is actually helpful to me. More updates later...Neal --SkippyG 21:37, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Scale Mound, etc [14 May 2016]

Don't see the duplication of the source mentioned; you must have deleted one of them. FYI, sometimes the same source/book may have more than 1 version, due to one being an "updated" publication at a later date. Also, only an admin can merge sources, therefore leave a note stating you believe the source is a duplication of another.

Created "Scale Mound Township Cemetery". Note that "Township" is not abbreviated. Find A Grave rarely uses abbreviations, other than "Saint" & "St." which both occur in names of cemeteries. Neal--SkippyG 17:51, 14 May 2016 (UTC)


Thank you for the feedback [26 May 2016]

I agree entirely with all you say, it is perhaps unfortunate that you donated just as Dallan was going on vacation, as far as I am aware only Dallan can do anything about donaters and advertising. As I understand it a lot has changed since last year and most of the help pages and volunteer pages are out of date and nobody is willing to update them, in fact many people listed as admins are no longer active, I am removing admin privileges from inactive members quicker than new admins are volunteering.

I am still hoping to make something of WeRelate, I care about quality research and making it available to anyone and a community wiki does seem the best way to go. I am however totally against all advertising and more so when it tries to trick people into thinking is is more important than it is. I did not even realise there was advertising here when I joined as my adblocker prevented it displaying.

I am confidant that the current unease will settle down soon and those of us passionate about sharing genealogy will make something better.--Rhian 07:39, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

I got busy and forgot to tell you I updated the donate page, and just to check you are now add free or is that still a problem?--Rhian 08:22, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I still have ads. THREE ads on person pages, one across the top, a very wide one on the right and a more narrow one on the left. Very distracting to have that much extraneous material on the person pages. But at least there is no embedded ad in the user area!!
OK I will get back to Dallan about it. he is fishing in Canada until next week and is the only one that can remove ads at the moment. At leasy he removed the embeded ad before he went.--Rhian 18:51, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Jackson Family
SAMUEL JACKSON was son of Francis Jackson, of Prince William County, d. 1782, and Sallie Tyler, dau of Judge Charles Tyler.
FRANCIS JACKSON was son of John Jackson of Stafford, 1738, and Miss Kenny.
JOHN JACKSON was son of Samuel Jackson, in Stafford, 1694.

My records are not in agreement with the above.
I see that I'll have to prove or disprove one or the other because once others pick up published info, it is difficult to say differently without extensive documentation. I'll double check to see if I can prove my records.
I knew I was going to have to prove whatever I posted to WeRelate anyway so this exercise will fit in with my plan to post Samuel's descendants to WeRelate. But ugh....

Hi Janie, I have NO memory of this-- been too many years. And I see that there is no longer a map on that page, so I presume you removed it?

What do you think will happen to WeRelate? Seems like Dallan has more or less abandoned it. I've been hanging out at wikitree for awhile now.

Ordering census sources [25 June 2016]

I would prefer to put this comment under the Suggestions discussion, but the last time I tried that I knocked out Cos1776's earlier reply.

I don't use GEDCOMs much, so I don't have much experience of what they can do to records, but it would appear that they depend on the entry date of the source rather than the date of the event the source refers to. That makes such a mess in a site like WeRelate where we are trying to make a nice understandable presentation for others to read--and putting them back in order once they get to WR is not easy. Practicality and presentation should come first.

Your suggestion re ordering "what links here" [4 July 2016]

>I went to a Place Page and clicked on what links here to check on some folks. The results are listed first by templates, then all the sources, then all the places and FINALLY lists the persons -which is what I wanted to see. A 'what links here' page cannot be edited, but if I could have, I would have placed a template on the page so that one could select either family, person, place or sort alpha. I guess the template normally used for this would have to be edited to include templates. But some way to sort the results on a 'what links here' page would be very helpful! --janiejac 17:27, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi janiejac
I wish the "what links here" pages I look at had a consistent order of templates, sources, places, persons. (Oh, that's interesting, the current order is reverse alphabetical! I wonder if that was a mistake in software writing?)

In English placename pages they are all mixed up because numerous redirects have come in from time to time. Each redirect brings with it a whole lot more links which come in with their own lists of templates, sources, places, persons, also arranged in the that order.

I agree with your suggestion. We ought to be able to inspect any one of four or five different types of pages. We have this choice on the "List" tab under "Contributions". The instructions in the software could include the same directions.

Meanwhile, would using the control key + "f" be of help? Control key + "f" brings up a little box in the bottom left hand corner into which you can write anything, perhaps "Smith". This will bring up each reference to Smith in turn. Longwinded, but helpful. Also, you can ask for 500 items to show at once rather than the usual 50. This will get more persons on the screen at once. (Persons and families are sorted by first name at the moment. I bet this is fixable, too. And I wish it included birth and death dates.) Lastly, you can print the "what links here" list and cross off the ones you have inspected.

Hope this helps --Goldenoldie 06:28, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
