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. There are also in-depth text tutorials available from the Help button.


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 right 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 use abbreviations. 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.

Nottinghamshire Surnames List?

Hi, I noticed you added a Surname page: "Nottinghamshire Surnames List". I deleted the page because Surname pages are supposed to contain information on individual surnames. Did you mean to add a source of information about Nottinghamshire surnames? If so, could you click on Source:Nottinghamshire Surnames List and create the page, and also include a URL or some text explaining where the list can be found? Thanks!--Dallan 23:14, 13 April 2007 (MDT)

I just found the URL you had entered on the category page (which I also deleted). I went ahead and created the page and added the URL to it. Thanks again!--Dallan 23:25, 13 April 2007 (MDT)

Fixed Place Names

Currenly, we don't put "England" at the end of place names in England if the county is known. By removing England from the places in Winters in Millow, Bedfordshire, England, those three places will now link to existing place pages. This is being worked on by the head programmer and when it is fixed, the places in your article will have "England" added back automatically. --Dquass 19:58, 15 April 2007 (MDT)


Benger surname category

Just an FYI, I also created a Source for your website: Source:Henry Smith Benger so that people searching sources (or wanting to cite it) will find it. Feel free to add more information to the source page or change its title.--Dallan 12:22, 16 April 2007 (MDT)


Place Abbreviations

Hello, Hugh. Just FYI, it is preferable to avoid using abbreviations in place names at any level, such as NZ for New Zealand. It is easier for the site to index your pages properly, and for your cousins to find you, if name places are spelled out completely. It's one of the things I also have to go back and change for many of my own pages on WeRelate.  :-) --Kittydoc 16:01, 17 April 2007 (MDT)

Surname:McMillans of Dalziel [9 June 2008]

Hi Kopuru,

I hope you're doing well. I've been reviewing the surname pages in preparation for the new search function and came across Surname:McMillans of Dalziel. I just wanted to let you know that I deleted it and moved the content to Person:Robert McMillan (14).--Dallan 23:33, 9 June 2008 (EDT)


Davern Surname [1 March 2009]

I stumbled across your Davern in Anacarty, Tipperary, Ireland page. In a side branch of my BETZ line, a Mary Ann DAVERN of Ireland, married a BETZ.

You can see what I have about this Davern branch here. They were also from Tipperary.

Create a UK or England Portal [20 July 2009]

Would you be interested in establishing a UK or England Portal to help raise some interest in WeRelate among UK centred researchers ? I note how a Uk and Aus portal has helped sites such as ancestry.

Theres a danger that UK researchers migh look at WeRelate and think it is predominantly US centred (OK it might be but we could change that)
