Saving edits [10 August 2007]

Hi, Marty. I am one of the administrators for WeRelate. I hope you are enjoying the site. We really appreciate your participation. I noticed that you often save your pages every few minutes. As you know the system archives every save. Saving so often may complicate matters if you ever need to go back and check something or want to revert to a prior version. It also creates extra work for those of us who check the site for vandalism. Its ok to save as often as you feel necessary but I wanted to point out the "show preview" button next to the "Save" page button at the bottom of the edit box. This key will show you the finished product and the edit box at the same time. Also if another person is watching your pages, contributing to them, they get an email every time the page is saved. If you don't want them to get the email check the "This is a minor edit" box above the save button.  :)--sq 23:49, 9 August 2007 (EDT)


I agree about the multiple "saves" but it is a force of habit that is hard to break. I'll work on that. On my own website I often lost things while I was editing them due to computer lockups, etc., so I've always been in the habit of saving my work frequently. In that environment it was a good habit, but not always appropriate elsewhere.

Thanks for everything. I love WeRelate so far! An excellent Wiki! --Martygrant 10:39, 10 August 2007 (EDT)

Finally! I apologize for the delay in uploading your GEDCOM. The website was moved to a new hosting center last night and there were some problems today getting the GEDCOM uploader to work on the new hardware, but it's working now. Enjoy the site!--Dallan 00:49, 10 August 2007 (EDT)


Thanks for that. I was wondering if it would always take this long (it was my first Gedcom upload here). I was trying to save myself a little typing. I generally like to work from "scratch" and not use a Gedcom, that way I can review the data as I'm typing it in again and make sure everything is right and properly documented. Thanks for your help.--Martygrant 10:47, 10 August 2007 (EDT)

Dugger / Rainbolt [11 July 2009]

YES BENJAMIN T DUGGER WAS THE FATHER [ JOHN {B} RAINBOLT ] . John B , mother was Nancy L Rainbolt, and of course they were never married.

John B Rainbolt was born abt 1855. Nancy L rainbolt was born about 1822 and died 4 july 1876.

John got married in 1876 and had 11 childern. John Rainbolt's NOTE : the B is important, because thier are many John Rainbolt's

Nancy L Rainbolt's father was Elisha Adam Rainbolt, and he lived in Johnson co, Tn. Elisha married { Elizabeth Dugger ] born 1789.

BENJAMIN T , DIED after 1880 Nancy L , DIED july 1876 John B , DIED Jan 1919

So Benjamin out lived Nancy. If you compare his two marriages and thier death dates, It appears that Benjamin Had john one year before he married Eleanor Campbell.

Dugger Missouri [31 January 2010]

Hi my name is Joshua Dugger, I have been trying to do some research on my family, the Dugger's. I know my family came from Carter County Tennessee right before the Civil War. I live in Hartville, Missouri and the grandfather of mine that came here is buried here close, his name was Thomas dugger and he later married Martha Ann Cook in Wright County, MO. From what I have found on the internet I am descended from Daniel Dugger and MAry Scarborough, but like most things there is no certainty. I ahve looked at this stuff for a few years and where I look I always see your name, so I thouhgt it would be good to e-mail you. The informtion I am looking for is where did these Dugger's come from, from what I've found out they came from Scotland. If you ahve any onformation please e-mail me at j.dugger@live.com.--Jdugger 18:20, 30 January 2010 (EST)

Featured Page - Week of June 20th [18 June 2011]

Hi Marty, just wanted to let you know that your page on William Dugger has been selected as this next week's WeRelate Featured Page! Great job and keep up the good work:)

Best regards,

Jim (Co-Administrator on WeRelate)--Delijim 20:07, 17 June 2011 (EDT)

Hi cousin -- I wanted to congratulate you on winning the featured page too. They've asked us employees at the Family History Library to add information to the source pages, so I've been really getting into WeRelate too. All the best. Murphynw 13:07, 1 July 2011 (EDT)

Found a match on one of your pages! [5 December 2011]

Hi Marty, I was adding some information on the Hawkins family of Bute County, North Carolina and believe I've found a match with one of your families:

http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Family:John_Green_and_Delia_Hawkins_%281%29 (Formerly John Green and Delia Unknown)

Found the following match:

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=7213&id=I25848

I've updated the WeRelate page for John Green and Delia and Delia's person page. It appears that Delia may have died shortly after her marriage and John Green appears to have married Delia's younger sister, Parentha Hawkins. (I didn't add that marriage since it didn't have specific date info).

Just wanted you to know.

Best regards,

Jim:)--Delijim 18:47, 5 December 2011 (EST)
