Next step: Review your GEDCOM [11 July 2010]

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 MYFAMILY.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.

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 lines 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.

1910 Middlesex census [12 July 2010]

Hello, I see that you added two pages for the 1910 Middlesex census. In your first title, the location appeared twice. This happens sometimes when a user puts the location in both the title field and the places covered field in the Add Page form.

You can either put the Source:Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. 1910 U.S. Census Population Schedule page into Category:Speedy Delete, or let me know and I can delete it for you. Thanks, --Jennifer (JBS66) 19:58, 12 July 2010 (EDT) (volunteer admin)

Family:Isaac Keen and Lydia Jones (1) [28 August 2010]

I left a post on the talk page for Family:Isaac Keen and Lydia Jones (1) hoping you would explain how it is your note can asset the Congregational Church records are wrong. Got carried away in my analysis there, but the bottom line is, usually it takes two or three contradicting facts before one tries to assert that a primary source is wrong and I was hoping you might be able to provide the explanation that led to this conclusion. Thank you.--Jrich 21:03, 28 August 2010 (EDT)

I need to go dig out that file for more information, But that comment was actually a quote of the researcher who provided the information to me, not a comment of my own. Notice that the source specified was NOT the original records, but a secondary document on the family. --Richard_Damon 21:31, 28 August 2010 (EDT)

Margaret Orr Keen Family Tree may be a secondary source, but the Congregational Church records it is saying are wrong are primary, and without an explanation, they would be of more credibility than the Margaret Orr Keen Family Tree. That is why I am pressing for more information, in particular, whether you (or this source) agrees that the church records says 16 Nov 1733 but the records appear wrong and, if so, why, OR whether, you/they looked at the handwritten copy and discovered that the printed transcription of the church's records (view here) are unfaithful to the original records. --Jrich 22:47, 28 August 2010 (EDT)

As I said, the line mention is a quote from the secondary source, I will need to extract the files to see if there is any further comments about it, or contact the author to see what grounds they had for making the conclusion. I have not yet had the opportunity to make my own research into better sources on this to make my own conclusions. --Richard_Damon 23:16, 28 August 2010 (EDT)
