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 ), annotated pictures, and 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--Dquass 18:36, 8 April 2007 (MDT)
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.
We strongly recommend that you spend a few minutes taking our. It provides a brief overview of how to use the features of WeRelate. A little time spent here may save you time later. There are also in-depth text tutorials available from the help button.
The next thing to do is, 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.
Shared research pages
Shared research pages act like specialized message boards. Be careful to use only one name spelling and one location in each field, do not abbreviate. Including postal codes and multiple spellings, names or locations in these fields will cause your pages to be improperly indexed. It will make it harder for your cousins to find your pages and work with you. For more information see Shared research pages.

Your Hezekiah Doane [20 August 2008]
Your Hezekiah Doane married to Hannah Snow is Hezekiah Doane, Sr., son of Ephraim Doane, son of Deacon John Doane. There is information on them in WeRelate pages, as well as all over the web (just do an Internet-wide search). (example: http://daynesfamilytree.netfirms.com/johndoanefamilytree.htm) Look up the Doane Family Association (DFA) online, and join their list. They have all the documentation as well. (http://www.doanefamilyassociation.org/ and http://www.doane.edu/About_Doane/Info/Doane_Family/) Information on Hannah Snow is also plentiful. Some listings show these people with surname spelled Doan or Done.--Dougcouch 00:41, 20 August 2008 (EDT)

Happy New Year 2009!! Hope you had a good 2008.

Your Sarah Partridge seems to match another page on WeRelate, but the rest of the family differs somewhat. Would you check your duplicates and confer with the other user to sort this out? Thanks. --Volunteer Administrator-Beth 21:04, 14 April 2009 (EDT)

Serepta Vail [26 March 2011]
Hi - are you the person who posted the information for Serepta Vail and Pierce Spalding? I'm a descendant of them and fairly new to genealogy research, and this is the first information on Serepta I've been able to find. I knew her name from the Spalding History and from some handwritten family records, but that's about all I had.--Mshawlarson 13:37, 26 March 2011 (EDT)

Sarah Chesterfield [27 March 2011]
I've recently gotten interested in genealogy inheriting the tendency from my grandfather, so to speak. I've been plugging in his chart to Ancestry.com in order to see what other folks have. Scott Austin pointed me to werelate.org as a higher info quality alternative and I've been using it to check things. I've yet to work back to my grandfathers original documents which seem to have come to rest in non-digital form in the state historical archives in Pierre, SD.
There's a point that seems confused there, in my grandfather's records, and, also I think, here.
This wiki shows Sarah C's spouse as the following:
Parents: George Reynolds and Thomasyn Church John Reynolds b. ABT 1612 Ipswich, Suffolk, England d. AFT Mar 1651 Wethersfield, Stamford, Greenwich, Connecticut
But, also: John Reynolds [Parents] was born in 1590 in Ipswich,Suffolk,England. He died on 18 Jul 1641 in Wethersfield,Hartford,Ct. He married Sarah.
The [parents] isn't a link in the site but is a link in what seems to be the source of that text here: http://www.shannonsminis.com/gen/pafg56.htm#969. And that link takes you to George Reynolds and Tomasyn Church as parents.
So either Sarah married successively two brothers named John or I'm missing something or there's a snarl in this.
Do you know which it is?
Thanks much in advance for any help. This is all quite fascinating.

WELLS, Walter Melvin Jr. [3 August 2011]
Katsus, Don't know if you are the "Living Wells" or not, however, I am trying to locate the children and/or grandchildren of Walter Jr. Walter SR. was my grandmother's (Mary Wells) brother and I knew Walter JR and his wife Mary Lou. They were guests at my mother's 80th b'day party in 1991 (and we exchanged family history). I talked to Walter once while he at the Vet Hospital in Yountville but I never had contact info for his children. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Linda--Linda73 12:42, 3 August 2011 (EDT)
