Next step: Review your GEDCOM [27 February 2012]

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 randall.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.

Citation Needed Template

Hi Projectmc

I noticed that someone had reverted your change to the {{Template:Citation needed}}. I don't see a comment from them here, so perhaps they emailed you an explanation. Just in case, I thought I'd add my 2 cents.

I suspect you were simply trying to insert the appropriate citation somewhere, and thought this might do the trick. Templates are one of the trickier things in wiki's such as WeRelate, and its easy to misunderstand their function. In this case, you succeeded in inserting your reference on your target page---and immediately inserted the same reference on literally hundreds of thousands (really!) of other pages that have previously made use of the same template. The reason your change affected so many other pages is because the system automatically inserts this template where-ever a citation is missing from the vita data fields. Since many data fields lack citations, it gets put into a lot of pages---hence your change had effects far beyond your intent. If I can help you with this, let me know.

Gedcom restrictions [1 March 2012]

Hello, noticed your question on my talk page. There are restrictions in adding persons before 1700, they have to be added manually. It is also a good idea to only add families that have been well-researched (since many gedcoms may contain errors).

This information is contained in the gedcom loading instructions.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,

Jim:)--Delijim 21:59, 29 February 2012 (EST)
