Next step: Review your GEDCOM [6 August 2010]

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 x.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.

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 lines 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.

Carpenters: Suggest changing notes to links [30 December 2010]

I am in the process of uploading a GEDCOM file with some Carpenters in it, and thus merging with existing Carpenter records. I notice that you have copied articles from Zubrinsky's Carpenter Encyclopedia into Carpenter records, and I would like to remove the text from the records and replace it with links to the Carpenter Encyclopedia. There are 2 reasons for this:

Much of the original formating has been lost in copying the articles, and they do not look as polished as the original (meaning it is also a bit less easy to find what you are looking for).
Zubrinsky has been updating the articles in the Encyclopedia and I assume will continue to do so.

I don't know how far I will go - just the records I am (or will be) watching, or whether I will have the energy and time to chase down all the Carpenter records, and I probably won't start for another day or so. I trust you have no objections. Let me know if you think there is a better way of handling this. Thanks. --DataAnalyst 08:17, 30 December 2010 (EST)

The one main problem is that people fill a void. They want to see some notes. Even with the links they will add old notes and ignore the links. When I put the Carpenter Sketches on line, Gene Zubrinsky liked the pdf format due to formating even though the original intent was for inclusion in the notes of genealogy programs. That is why the BIRTH, MARRIAGE, DEATH type headings. You can try a few and see what people do. It will be an interesting expiriment. Jrcrin001 19:34, 30 December 2010 (EST)
