Welcome to WeRelate, your virtual genealogical community. We're glad you have joined us. At WeRelate you can easily create ancestor webpages, connect with cousins and other genealogists, and find new information.
The first thing to do is, then select File in the Family Tree Explorer menu and give your family tree a name. You can either upload your GEDCOM or create person and family pages one at a time. To upload your GEDCOM, select File in the Family Tree Explorer menu and then click on Import and choose the GEDCOM file to import. The system will create a editable web page for each person and family in your GEDCOM. To create a page manually, select Add in the Family Tree Explorer menu and click on Add new person; enter the given (first name) and surname (last name), select Add, then fill in the blanks and save.
The Family Tree Explorer is a Flash application and will need to use some space in your computer to cache the files. That's computer talk for "If you store some ancestor page information on your computer, you will be able to view more pages faster. Otherwise, the system has to fetch each page every time you edit or look at it. This caching is not permanent and only lasts as long as you are at WeRelate each time.
Connect with other genealogists
You should always sign in when you are editing or adding pages. Use the signature button to sign your work (the swiggle, second from the right, above the edit box). That way others with similar interests can find you. If you click on the blue user name on any page, you will go to that person's home page. You can leave a message on his/her Discussion page. The Discussion page button is in the light green second level menu bar above.

Calkin merge [19 May 2009]
Hi, I merged the family pages because they obviously are the same family. However, I did so as a volunteer administrator for WeRelate, so I know nothing about your family. This is a massive project to merge duplicate pages. You may check for duplicates and merge your own pages. You need to contact User:Calkins1931 because this user entered the birth place as Canada. --Beth 18:38, 19 May 2009 (EDT)
Numbers added [22 May 2009]
I noticed your message on another User's page about "UID: CF9F1A4E-A3F4-4093-98D1-BF69118E66F9 RIN: MH:IF12676".
As I understand it the User's genealogy computer program in their GEDCOM creates this UID number. Hopefully they will edit it. It is not necessary on WeRelate. Do you share the same person?
