Next step: Review your GEDCOM [14 June 2011]

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 Mitchell.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.

England and incorrect entry for a town [28 June 2011]

Richard,

Thanks for the correction in location re: John Worthington. You are quite right re: Pendennis and I have re-read my information and corrected everything to just plain "England" or if using Pendennis have made it Maryland. Thanks for the help.

"Pendennis Mount is a community or populated place (Class Code U6) located in Anne Arundel County at latitude 38.998 and longitude -76.476 (Pendennis Mount Panoramio Photos). The elevation is 85 feet. Pendennis Mount appears on the Annapolis U.S. Geological Survey Map. Anne Arundel County is in the Eastern time zone (GMT -5). Observes DST? Yes.

Walbys of Aston, Hertfordshire [4 May 2012]

Hi Richard,

I have recently been researching my family history and came across this website, I am a descendant of George Beadle and Dorcas Walby and noticed you may have been the person responsible for posting some information about them and the Walby family. As you are marked down as 'watching', I would be interested to know what your started off your interest in them?

Cheers

Tom--Tom35 11:43, 3 May 2012 (EDT)


Hello Tom

I'm a descendant of the Walbys of Aston, through George Walby (baptised 1779) who left and moved to Great Wymondley and Hitchin. I have been posting what I know about them - there are a few Walby wills at Hertfordshire Archives I know are there but haven't had a chance to go and research yet.

Regards Richard.--RichardK 14:05, 3 May 2012 (EDT)


Great to make your acquaintance Richard, your research has helped me a lot, fantastic that you have been able to take the Walby's back so far, so you are a descendant of Dorcas's older brother George.

I have hit a bit of a stumbling block myself as I cannot seem to get back further than George Beadle on that side, as I have conflicting information saying he was born in Layston, Benington (but Layston is near Buntingford) and there are Beadles in Benington and Layston so it is confusing which line is correct and I cannot find any info on Georges parents on Ancestry.co.uk.

Best wishes.

Tom--Tom35 04:13, 4 May 2012 (EDT)


Hi Tom

Looking at it, your George Beadle appears in the 1851 census giving his place of birth as Bennington, and age as 68, implying born 1782/3. I imagine other researchers have then simply looked on FamilySearch and seen the closest match there being the George Beadle baptised 29 Apr 1781 at Layston (which parish included the town of Buntingford). However, I'd be wary of simply accepting that without further evidence - FamilySearch has good coverage for Hertfordshire but it is not complete, nor can you ever be certain that every child was baptised or that every baptism was properly recorded, so you can't just say "this is the closest on FamilySearch" and take that as fact.

Good luck in your search. Richard.--RichardK 09:58, 4 May 2012 (EDT)

Bedfordshire page [7 November 2012]

Hi Richard

Thanks for sorting out those bits and pieces on the Bedfordshire page. Sometimes one looks at things too long to see grammatical errors. As for missing out Huntingdonshire, that shows too much dependency on Wikipedia (who have also omitted it).

Over the past six months I have done a lot of work on Ontario, Canada pages which have all got to a stage that an electrician might call "first fix". Bedfordshire happened to be the first English county page--alphabetically. There looks to be lots of sorting out to do.

Regards --goldenoldie 16:39, 7 November 2012 (EST) (Pat)


Hi Pat - I did try and tidy up the Bedfordshire (and neighbouring Hertfordshire) parishes a while ago, giving them all co-ordinates and the like, but didn't do much with the county's own page. As for Wikipedia missing out Huntingdonshire, that's because it uses the modern counties - but the nature of WeRelate is such that it's far more the historic ones that are relevant. Good luck in what sounds like a massive task. Regards Richard.--RichardK 16:47, 7 November 2012 (EST)

Thank you [20 July 2013]

Hello Richard,

Thank you for your research and the missing information on James Brookman and family. Regards Jeffrey--JeffreyRLehrer 10:55, 19 July 2013 (EDT)

Richard, as you know I haven't seen them, would you have a copy of the images for the 1851 and 1861 census for the Brookman's. It doesn't matter if not, I appeciate you looking them up and adding the information here for us. Jeffrey


Hello Jeffrey - glad to be of help. I'm slightly wary of posting the images, as I don't want to breach any intellectual property rights in the images nor the terms and conditions of any of the commercial companies which host the censuses. You should be able to find the images from the reference numbers I've quoted in my citations from any of the companies which host them - Ancestry, Findmypast etc. Regards, Richard.--RichardK 16:14, 20 July 2013 (EDT)


Walbys [21 October 2013]

Hi Richard

We spoke a long time ago about the Walby's of Aston (Dorcas in my case).

Another descendant would like to send you a 200 page research document on the Walbys.

If you are interested in receiving it please could you let me know your email address.

It is in pdf format.

Best wishes

Tom--Tom35 12:22, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello Tom - I would be interested in seeing that. Many thanks Richard


Mitchell [3 January 2014]

Hi Richard

My name is John Mitchell grandson of Samuel Mitchell. I was going to get in touch with you to tell you the date Samuel died but I see you have now found that out. It took me a while to locate the correct Samuel because of an incorrect age on his marriage certificate but, when I got a copy of his death certificate, all fell into place. Alan Mitchell, his last surviving child, thought it was likely he claimed he was younger than he was in order to 'capture' Alice. Once I new I had the right Samuel your research has allowed all his family know a lot about their ancestors for which I am very grateful. I would be interested to know what your interest is in the family.

I know very little about Samuel, the only pictures I have of him are after he married Alice May Brewin in Loughborough. I would love to find out more about Samuel particularly why he ended up in Loughborough - my uncle Alan knows vey little and cannot remember any of Samuel's family other than a man called Frank who may have been 'interested' in one of Alan's sisters. I have not been able to find any candidates for this person. Do you have any more information about Samuel or his siblings that might help. I see you know a little about George if I could locate any of his family they might be able to help.

Obviously I have information about Samuel's eight children if it is of any use to you.

Thanks again for all your work.

John--Johnmitch 13:22, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello John

The Mitchells are on my wife's side - she is the great granddaughter of George William Mitchell, your Samuel's younger brother. I have pretty much put everything I know about the family here on WeRelate - not a lot of information was passed down through the family, so apart from the photographs of George William and his second wife almost everything has come from research. I'd struggled with Samuel - he seemed to disappear after 1911 (as does his brother Charles Frederick) - I'd only just found a post on RootsChat a couple of days ago which made sense of Samuel's later life. If you know Samuel's exact dates of birth, marriage and death I'd welcome those. I'd worked out that he and Alice had eight children - but I haven't put pages for them on here because personally I don't like putting people born within the last century online, even if they have died. I think it's a bit too close to people who may still be living. I can't say for certain who Frank is - but George William had a son called Frank, born (if I remember rightly off the top of my head) in about 1920. As to why Samuel might have moved to Loughborough, I'm afraid your guess is as good as mine.

Pleased to make your acquaintance.

Richard--RichardK 14:50, 2 January 2014 (UTC)


Hi again Richard

Thanks for your reply - I only have copies of Samuel's marriage and death certificates.

According to Samuel's marriage certificate he married at the Parish Church in Loughborough on the 25th October 1919. His age was stated as 26 and his wife Alice May Brewin was 20. His address was 13 Hume Street and hers was 73 Meadow Lane. The witnesses were Ephraim (father) and Catherine Brewin. Alfred (deceased) was recorded as Samuels father.

Samuels death certificate gives his date of death as the 7th September 1959 age 74 years at 11 Clarence Street in Loughborough with Alice as the informant. The cause of death is recorded as a) Cerebral Thrombosis b) Arteriosclerosis.

Denis Cleary [8 February 2014]

Hi there -

I believe the information for Denis Cleary (www. werelate. org/wiki/Person:Denis_Cleary_%281%29) is incorrect. I am a direct descendant of his and have traced him through my grandmother, Maria F. Cleary -- he was her grandfather.

Denis left Kildare for Dublin, marrying Maria Frances Mooney (daughter of James and Frances Marshall). Check out this record, with the link to the document image at the bottom of the page: churchrecords. irishgenealogy. ie/churchrecords/details/a6df1c0056375

Here is their child, Denis: churchrecords. irishgenealogy .ie/churchrecords/details/b34a350203488. Denis later married Bridget Nulty and my grandmother was one of their children. Denis, son of Maurice, died sometime between 1883 and 1901, since Maria and the child appear on the 1901 census alone and Maria's marital status is "Widow".--Valerialia 06:57, 8 February 2014 (UTC)


Thank you very much for that information, Valerialia, and apologies for my mistake. I shall try and correct the pages shortly. Regards RichardK--RichardK 08:01, 8 February 2014 (UTC)


savage family [2 March 2014]

hi Richard, I believe we are related through Barzillai Savage. his parents John and Elizabeth are my 6x gr.grandparents.(if I am doing this right) I have been working on the family tree for many years now and the only one I can not find a birth place for is greatgrandmother Jane Savages husband John Knight. I put my records on charts as I am old school and do not know the computer too well. if you send me your email I will send you the charts as soon as I finish them. I may have to forget John Knight as there are too many of them. he died in 1880 before the 1881 census at 36 years of age. by the way you have done a great job on this site.
