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.


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 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.


Great things you can do at WeRelate

Please see the Great things you can do at WeRelate article.


Shared research pages

Shared research pages act like specialized message boards. Be care to use only one name spelling and one location in the title. This will help your cousins search the page. For more information see Shared research pages.


Thanks for participating in your virtual community.--Dquass 07:46, 7 April 2007 (MDT)

goldstine-040807.ged is being held for review

The pages from "goldstine-040807.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 goldstine-040807.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 goldstine-040807.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 User Talk:Npowell. We'll go ahead with the import, after which you'll want to merge the overlapping people by hand.

On deleting trees

Hi, I noticed the message you left on CTFrog's discussion page. Just as an FYI, if some of the pages are not deleted when you delete your tree because other people are watching them, it's not a big deal. They'll end up being "orphans" - pages that aren't connected to anyone else - and someday they'll probably get merged or deleted, but they shouldn't affect the new upload in any way.--Dallan 22:07, 24 April 2007 (MDT)

Ok, thats good to know. I am delighted for help from CTFrog (and anyone else)...thats one of the benefits of a collaborative tool....just wanted to make sure there was not a downside to the help when I need to upload a new GEDCOM. I think that CTFrog is on a good point trying to get to a uniform standard for place names. I'm slowly working through my local genealogy file to try to standardize my place names as much as possible. Have the werelate team thought about a standard format for place names? I'm open to using a werelate standard in my genealogy program so that my file will import to werelate more cleanly. --Jgoldsti 05:47, 25 April 2007 (MDT)

I think we have a pretty good standard for US place names. However, we still need to do a lot of work on place names for other countries. We're going to be working on fixing up place names over the next month; I'll feel a lot better about non-US place names at the end of May.--Dallan 17:24, 25 April 2007 (MDT)
