Wilbraham [5 June 2008]

Interesting point. It can be nice to have an archaic name that was in common use at the time, but only if it is given a definition by a place name page. To do that, someone needs to go and create Woodhey in either Faddiley or Cheshire, I'm not sure which is the convention for England. So:

   Woodhey, Faddiley, Cheshire, England

Or:

   Woodhey, Cheshire, England

Alternatively, I use the modern location name to get a searchable place page, and indicate the old name or other information in the description.

My focus is really on eliminating duplication, and as a side aspect of that process, I try to turn place names into something that has a defined place page. General tidying up, etc.--Jrm03063 20:33, 4 June 2008 (EDT)


Edits to your pages [10 July 2008]

Hi Josh,

I am administrator for WeRelate. I made some changes to your pages. We recommend that you only enter the given name and surname for the person page title. For a female that would be her maiden name; if the maiden name is not known enter Unknown. Entering names using this method will enhance our search engine and merging capabilities. In the namespace any words entered after the first word are considered part of the surname.

The family page name is the given name surname (male) and given name surname (female); example John Smith and Mary Fudcastle.

I hope that you enjoy WeRelate. --Beth 09:59, 10 July 2008 (EDT)


Siegfried Hansen (1) [2 February 2009]

Hi, I am just going over the merges and was wondering if you intended to merge Siegfried with Living Hansen. They don't seem to have any data in common. Special:ReviewMerge/11544 Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions or comments.  :)--sq 14:39, 2 February 2009 (EST)

Disconnects [4 March 2009]

I wasn't sure how to get started so I boldly copied your Stotts/Laughlin tree into a tree of my own making. For some reason, the tree seems to be broken. If I select Robert C Stotts from the individuals list and then switch to pedigree and descendants view, he is shown as not being in a tree. How do I fix this?--Normwookie 22:43, 3 March 2009 (EST)


On the other hand, I did the same with the Hansen Watson tree and it works fine.--Normwookie 23:14, 3 March 2009 (EST)


Benjamins and Eddys [4 March 2009]

I see some Benjamins and Eddys in the Hansen Watson tree. Our relationship to them has been disproved.--Normwookie 23:12, 3 March 2009 (EST)


This looks like a fragment containing six individuals.--Normwookie 23:16, 3 March 2009 (EST)


Check my citations [5 March 2009]

Josh, could you look at some of my recent changes to Niels Hansen and Katinka Kristiansen to see if I'm doing citations and image labels in an acceptable manner. Also, I would like to keep images in chronological order. Is there a way to reorder them on the page after they are uploaded?--Normwookie 00:26, 5 March 2009 (EST)


Citations again [7 March 2009]

Hey, Josh. I was about to replace your source S1 on Edwin Stotts(1) with my own, but I decided to leave both until we agree on a format for citations. I see that your citations start with "Josh Hansen/". Is this a standard for citations in the Wiki world? Take a look at the page for Edwin Stotts and let me know what you think.--Normwookie 21:06, 6 March 2009 (EST)


Uploading Census Images [7 March 2009]

I've uploaded a few census images to myrelate, but I don't think I'll upload any more. They are available elsewhere. I think uploaded images should be limited to those photographs or scanned documents we have that aren't easily found in other locations. What do you think?--Normwookie 15:39, 7 March 2009 (EST)


First time adding family and individual pages [7 March 2009]

I added a family page for Edwin Stotts (b. 1868) and Rose Unknown and individual pages for Rose and their children, Lila, Oma, and James. I haven't added sources yet, but can you look at what I have so far and tell me if I've done it right?--Normwookie 16:36, 7 March 2009 (EST)


How do I know when you add a new page? [8 March 2009]

I guess I'd like to know when you add a new page. Likewise, I'd like you to know when I add a new page. Is there a way to get automatic notifications when a new person or family page gets added to a tree?--Normwookie 01:24, 8 March 2009 (EST)


Creating a source. [9 March 2009]

I thought it was going to be easy. I created a mysource page called Williams Family Tree. I thought I could upload images to the page and make it a repository, but such is not the case. There are three Family Trees drawn by Berniece Williams: the Williams Family Tree, the Stotts Family Tree, and the Steele Family Tree. I want to keep scans of these trees together in a common repository. It seems like to use mysource I have to create an off-site repository by creating a website... not what I want to do. Do you have any suggestions for creating a page on werelate that can serve as a local repository for these trees?--Normwookie 20:47, 8 March 2009 (EDT)


Families of Ancient New Haven [9 March 2009]

Hello, I am a volunteer admin here at WeRelate. I noticed that you renamed Source:Families of Ancient New Haven. Actually, book sources are titled in the format Author.Title. Here is the Help page for naming Sources. I'm going to go ahead and change it back. Thank you for your understanding.--Jennifer (JBS66) 15:37, 9 March 2009 (EDT)


One other note: If, on your person page, you would prefer to see something other than WeRelate's Source page title, here is a tip - you can use Source:Jacobus, Donald Lines. Families of Ancient New Haven|Families of Ancient New Haven. What is before the pipe | is WR's title, what is after the pipe can be what you would like to see shown on your person page. I hope this helps.--Jennifer (JBS66) 15:44, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Ancestors of Rasmus Pedersen [15 March 2009]

Hey, Josh, I found the Christening record for Rasmus Pederson. When I found him and Caroline Jorgensdotter in the 1860 Census, I learned that he was from Norre Soby not Soby. With that information I was able to find his Christening record in the Danish National Archives. The record includes the names of his parents. The records for this parish should let us go back another few generations. --Normwookie 01:14, 15 March 2009 (EDT)


Mother of Peder Nielsen [16 March 2009]

It sure is nice doing research in a small parish. I found Peder Nielsen's mother, Person:Maren Nielsdatter (37), in his Christening record in Norre Soby.--Normwookie 13:37, 16 March 2009 (EDT)


A second look at Johanne Marie Jensen [27 March 2009]

Hey, Josh,

I took a closer look at Katinka Kristina Kristiansen birth record. It says that her mother, Person:Johanne Jensen (9), was 19 years old at her birth in 1884. I found Johanne's birth record in December of 1864 and uploaded it to her page. I think it fits better than the other one. What do you think?--Normwookie 00:11, 27 March 2009 (EDT)

Hi, I just cleared your GEDCOM for import. Just a couple of things I noticed that you might want to look at once it's imported:

  • in the family for Niels Rasmussen and Karen Rasmusdotter, the child births happen when Karen is too young to bear children. Perhaps an incorrect birth date for Karen?
  • Vilhelmine Friis - looks like her birth date is in the wrong century; should be 1845?

All the best!--Dallan 11:17, 15 April 2009 (EDT)


Cemetery Pages [20 April 2009]

Josh, thanks a ton for introducing me to this website, and geneology in particular. I really appreciate it!! You're a good man! Devin--Devinander 16:41, 26 April 2009 (EDT)


Cemetery Portal [28 July 2009]

Hi Josh -- Thanks for creating the Cemetery Portal! I think it's great idea. I hope that I'm linking the cemetery pages to the categories correctly! --Ajcrow 08:10, 10 May 2009 (EDT)


Glad to hear I'm doing the cemetery pages correctly! When school lets out, I should have more time to get some more added to the site.

BTW, I noticed that you didn't have a date of marriage for Jacob Beery and Elizabeth Beaver. I have a copy of Source:Ohio marriages recorded in county courts, 1 Jan 1821 - 31 Dec 1830 : an index and found them listed in there. I hope you don't mind that I added it to their page. Good to have another Perry County researcher here! --Ajcrow 19:20, 10 May 2009 (EDT)


Hi Josh, I don't know why but I cannot edit the West Virginia Cemeteries page to add a cemetery. I expected to see each alpha letter as a separate section that I could edit, but it's apparently not set up that way. Can you tell me how to add a county and then a cemetery to your portal? --Janiejac 18:03, 28 July 2009 (EDT)

I think I'd better stick to what I know. I tried to add a category 'Cemeteries of Calhoun, West Virginia, United States' but what ever I did didn't work. It doesn't show up in your page. So I've got to find it again and delete it. I thought I was getting the hang of this wiki environment but obviously not. --Janiejac 19:56, 28 July 2009 (EDT)

David and Nancy Beery [3 July 2009]

Minerva Bratton and William Wood family.ged appears to overlap a previously-imported GEDCOM [23 October 2009]

The pages from this GEDCOM have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate.

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM and you want to replace that tree with this GEDCOM, you need to delete that tree first so duplicates aren't created when you import this GEDCOM. Click on Trees in the "My Relate" menu, then click on the "delete" link next to that tree. Please be aware that any pages in the tree that are being watched by others won't get deleted. Once that tree is deleted you can create a new tree and re-upload this GEDCOM into it. (We're planning to make re-uploading GEDCOM files much simpler soon.)

If you don't think you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM, or if the two GEDCOM's don't overlap that much, leave a message for Dallan or send an email to dallan@WeRelate.org and we'll go ahead with the import.

Hales and Venables no longer in tree? [27 May 2012]

Hi Josh,

I was trying to reconstruct the line back to Olaf in the seventh century, but it looks like that part of the tree is no longer connected. The children of Thomas Hale(9) and Thomasine Dowsett (1) are "not in tree." Did this branch of the Watson ancestry get pruned?--Normwookie 21:09, 26 May 2012 (EDT)
