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
Hi, Just a quick note to thank you for your upload. We're still testing, but we expect to have your pages created sometime tomorrow.--Dallan 21:37, 5 February 2007 (MST)
Sorry about the lost edits
Because of some errors in the gedcom upload program I'm testing, we had to re-upload your gedcom a couple of times. I just noticed, however, that we lost some of your edits that you made. As I have noticed them, I have restored them using the history page and comparing versions.
We will not be doing any more replacement uploads on your tree, however, so you no longer need to worry about losing the edits you've made.
Again, sorry about that, and thank you so much for your participation in the test!

Images in gedcom upload
This is just a quick note to let you know that we saved the filenames of the images referenced in the gedcom that you uploaded. In about a week we plan to provide an easy way for you to upload those images to WeRelate if you want to.--Dallan 14:52, 18 February 2007 (MST)
Source Beaumo [5 April 2009]
I've been cleaning up duplicates and merging pages to get our ancestors in order. I will be working on entering the source information I have.
One item that stymied me is a source you have Beaumo. As is, it qualifies as a "non-content source" and should be deleted. But I wonder if it refers to a book or something and the name got mangled on the gedcom import. Please let me know. You can delete it where it occurs and I would know if it is ok to delete. Unfortunately, it is a stand-alone source so each entry has to be handled separately. --Jlanoux 12:12, 5 April 2009 (EDT)
Next step: Review your GEDCOM [13 June 2011]
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 NEWEXPORT.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. We will keep your GEDCOM in the queue for two weeks to give you time to review it.
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 files (or families) 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.

Spudic [11 November 2013]
Got your message, and glad to see that you are still active at WeRelate. It looks like you were one of the earliest people to upload your data.
As for the Spudic family, I have no connection to them. I do act as a volunteer administrator to check for Duplicate Pages. As you know, there are not supposed to be any duplicate pages on WeRelate, but for various reasons they slip in. It appears that another person who is interested in the Spudic family also uploaded information early on, and somehow the duplicate pages weren't caught at that time, so I merged them.
In the process, it appears that both you and the other person also included a large number of living persons in your files. Again, you are probably aware that living people are not allowed on WeRelate. I know this can seem difficult (I have several aged relatives whose continued existence "messes up" my genealogy, but then I do have to admire them for their perseverance!), but it is way too easy for computerized web crawlers and even real people these days to find information about living people, with the potential that they can become the targets for identity theft and scams. I've removed a fair number of the living people, and I apologize if this seems upsetting, but then I think about my aged relatives and what a disaster it would be if one of them became the target of identity theft. I'm sure there are still living relatives left on some of your pages, so you might want to go through and remove them yourself just for their protection.
And you can try contacting the other contributor to the Spudic pages. --GayelKnott 23:30, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
