Next step: Review your GEDCOM [19 October 2013]

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 Richardsonclipping.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.

Anachronistic places [12 March 2014]

Hello, I am following the WeRelate guidelines for using place names as of 1900. You changed a few pages I had created or watch and I changed them back. There are other administrators who will change pages to conform to WeRelate guidelines as they find them. Since WeRelate has users from all over the world it was decided some time back that "United States" should be used whenever a U. S. location is given in the place field. Perhaps you would find entering the older place names in the description field satisfactory. --Susan Irish 02:08, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Susan. You have been changing place names before 1900. Please stop, you are harming WR. The United States did not exist before 1776, or by some reasoning until 1789 when the Constitution went into effect. It is historically incorrect to refer to any event that occurred before 1776 as taking place in the United States. It did not. WR help (here) contradicts your assertion that it is WR policy to refer to the colonies as US places. And where exactly are the guidelines you invoke? I can't find them.
It makes little sense to ignore changing place names after 1900; History did not stop at that date. There is a rather vague policy mentioning specifically European place names around 1900 here. Presumably this refers to usage as a canonical name, or perhaps the writer had given up hope of a historical understanding of Europe. He would not be the first to do so. However it is doubtful that WR as a whole means to give up on historical understanding of a continent.
It seems the canonical place names are needed for WR internally, however this should someday be replaced by a fully time-aware geographical system.
Also, why did you switch to my talk page? How would anyone reading this know to find the comment you are responding to on your talk page?
