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.
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

Josephine Maud Street [3 April 2008]
Josephine Maud Street Lash was the first wife of David W. Lash. They had 2 children, a boy and a girl. The editing part of this wiki is not allowing me to leave her name. I trust you will fix that when you find this message. Josie and DW are my husband's grandparents.--Oxford6 21:15, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
I am a distant relative of John Dewitt Potter by marriage. I am looking for his relatives. John was the yonger brother of my husband's great grandpa, Richard Rush Potter. They were all born in Michigan. Their mother died. The dad was not able to take care of the children (including others) so he gave the children to neighbors. Richard could never remember his dad's name, so we have a dead end there. But I do have names and birth dates of his older siblings. I cannot find them on line. Richard and John came out to Northern California when they grew up. One relative has a photo of his three children, Minnie, Maude and Frank. I am in touch with Richard's family, and we have some information on John. Many of Richard's family settled in Big Valley, California.
Anyway, I would like to be in the loop if you have any information on their decendents.
Sincerely, Carolyn Potter--CPotter 03:02, 17 May 2010 (EDT)
McLain family history [23 July 2011]
Hi, I was looking up my great uncle's name and I found this website. His name is Rex R Richard. I have been working on ancestry.com and would love to invite you to see what I've done so far. It is free. I'm sure I am lacking in much of the McLain history. I do have some.
My email address is email@example.com
Thank you, Kris 702-609-7620--OSU1988 13:39, 23 July 2011 (EDT)
Alfred Christian Lamka born 1885 [10 December 2011]
My children are the grandsons of Charles Edwin Lamka through his son Philip Charles Lamka and myself, Glenda Moorhead. Charley told us his mothers name was Eva Lena Hall. I have found her in the census of 1910 McCurtain, Oklahoma as the granddaughter of Dugles and Ida Hall. Where did you get the name Doberenz? I have been working on my sons genealogy for many years. She had three sons; Charles Edwin born December 19 1911, Everette born 1914 and George W. born February 4, 1921. This information was given to me by Charles Edwin Lamka. His wife Dell Johns (named Ardell Johns, is the daughter of James Alva Johns and Rosa Defries Alexander.) She was my mother-in-law. I think you may be able to help me and if I can help you in any way please contact me.
Thanks, Glenda Moorhead Lamka--Glendal 11:36, 17 October 2011 (EDT)
The information originally came from a Wilma J. Perrin and Nancy A. Miller in some research they had done. If you look in the 1910 census of Canadian County, Oklahoma in the town of El Reno (page 1) for Theodore Haubenreiser (second husband of Permelia) you will find Eva Doberenz. Amelia (really Permelia) is her mother. You will also find that they run a hotel and that one of their borders is an Alfred Lamka.--mclain35 13:16, 10 December 2011 (EST)
