Next step: Review your GEDCOM [6 September 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 GertrudKarinAmandaClasson.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.

Gotland [3 June 2014]

Hi,

I'm working on a Dutch Family who migrated to the US and the father was from Boge, Gotland Andreas Steinberg.

I added Pilgards but I wonder if this is a still existing place?

and his mother Babba Thomas is she the same as yours Babba Louisa Thomasdotter?

regards from the Netherlands

The names of farmstead generally lives on as addresses today on Gotland, even if there is no longer a farm there. In this case however there is a company called Pilgårds Boge Lantbruk AB ("Pilgårds Boge Farm Inc.") so in this case farming continues in that location.

Babba Lovisa Thomasdotter does exit in Olle Överby's database over gotland:

That's all the information I have about her, I'm not actually related to her, at least not according to that database. :-) But it is clearly the same person as your Babba. It's not a very common name, and with the same date and place of birth there can't be any doubt that it's the same person.

Thanks next question :-) : is Guthenberg a farm's name too ? and when the son is named Anders Petters than the father should be Petter Anders? Anders Guthenberg ?


No, Guthenberg is not a farms name. However, assuming the information is correct; you will have to verify all this with church records as this database isn't 100% reliable; the name seems to appear with either Anders Gutenberg or Pauel Gutenberg and they then lived on the farm called Gute in the parish of Bäl. Taking names after the farm or parish was indeed very common, and people in the parish of Linde could take names like Lindgren and Lindberg etc.

In fact, it seems Pauel Gutenberg starts using the name between 1811 and 1814 judging from the names of his children, which fits well in time, this practice became popular during, and because of, the Napoleonic wars. But his father and his siblings are also listed with that name, so perhaps it's earlier, perhaps that's just overzealous hobby genealogist that have "backported" the name. This happens. Church records will surely tell you more.

When you have family names like Guthenberg you generally skip the patronymic names, so you can't tell anything about the fathers name from Anders Petter Guthenberg.

In the case of Anders father Pål Thomasson Gute the last part isn't so much a family name as simply an information on where he lives or where he was born.

Tack så mycket!, In some parts of the Netherlands people have the same name tradition :-) Normally we use patronyms but in 1 part (Twente) people are often named after the farm they lived on and when they moved to another farm they simply took the name of the new 1. It all makes sense now to me. btw I have an original Swedish document regarding Anders Petter Guthenberg and Andreas Petter Steinberg so they are original names. I hope I may ask another question about traditions in Sweden. This Andreas Steinberg became orphan at the age of 5, what was "normal" procedure should he go to an orphanage or could he have been raised by family?

--henk 17:58, 3 June 2014 (UTC)


He would have been raised by family. If there was no family he could have ended up with a foster family, This was done by a sort of "reverse auction", where the family who demanded the least pay would become the foster family. He could have ended up in an orphanage as well, but that was mostly common in the cities, and foster homes was preferred.--Lennart 22:35, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
