Next step: Review your GEDCOM [10 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 RedesdaleReeds20120210.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.

Gedcom review [14 February 2012]

Hi, this is Solveig. I'm a volunteer admin. DFree thought you might have some questions about gedcom upload. I see your gedcom has been imported so maybe all your questions were answered but here goes.

Most Gedcoms have a few glitches. Even if a file is completely sourced, it's possible that someone will disagree with your findings. So we don't expect every error to be remedied before the gedcom is uploaded. That said, we don't want to import gedcoms that are full of obvious errors. We look at the amount of errors and warnings. If this is the best information you have at this time and the rest of the data is relatively clean, the gedcom will be imported. What we ask people to do is look at the warnings, alerts and errors and see if it can be fixed. You can click on the page title in the upper window and edit the info in the lower window. When you are finished, click on the import tab and click on "ready to import." Please note, you cannot do this until you have clicked on and reviewed every warning, alert or error, and on each proposed match. Hope this helps. Please leave me a message if you have any other questions.--sq 11:51, 14 February 2012 (EST)
