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.) 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
When I launch family tree explorer, I don't have a tree - why?
The reason you don't have a tree right now is because I've uploaded your tree under my name, and I haven't added the capability for you to open someone else's tree. I'll create a tree for you and put everyone in it tomorrow morning. After that, when you launch family tree explorer you should click on File in the family tree explorer menu, then on Open, then wait a couple of seconds and click on the tree that is displayed in the little window. This should let you see everyone in your tree, although I haven't yet created an interface for people to view/edit LDS ordinance information.--Dallan 13:40, 19 February 2007 (MST)
thank you note on Ripon, Wisconsin [15 October 2007]
I wanted to thank you for helping me out on the place of birth for Thomas Hawkins, in that I had it spelled incorrectly. Without your edit, I may never have figured out the actual town name. In appreciation --Msscarlet1957 22:20, 14 October 2007 (EDT)
[30 October 2007]
Forgive me if I'm making a breach in protocol here by jumping straight to your user page. I'm new here, and I'm still trying to figure out how things should be done.
I noticed that you made some changes to the page of one of my ancestors, Person:Martha E. Mounts (1), and while I don't mind, of course (That's what a wiki is for, after all!) I'm trying to figure out why you made them so I don't made the same mistakes again.
I noticed, first of all, that you changed a MySource to a regular Source. Honestly, the only reason the regular Source existed at all is because I made it by accident, and since I couldn't figure out how to delete it, I just said, "Ooops!" and went back and made an identical MySource. :-) I'm not sure if I'm using source pages in the conventional or even correct way, and until I figure that out, I thought I was better off sticking with MySources. Are regular Sources are better after all, though?
Also, I noticed that you deleted all of the 1930 information I had added for Martha Mounts. I'd been pretty sure I still had the right person, since most, if not all, of the facts matched up, but I wasn't entirely sure. Is it a bad idea to add information that I'm only partially certain about?
(Also, you changed a 1979 to 1869. Thanks!)
Thanks for keeping my ancestor's page accurate. I can tell by your user page that your experience in genealogy is much, much more vast than mine. Especially since my experience includes all of a couple months. :-) I'd just really appreciate it if you fill me in on which parts weren't right.--Jessica 23:53, 29 October 2007 (EDT)
