Next step: Review your GEDCOM [7 November 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 Fong_Family.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.

Roadmap for I18N [12 November 2013]

Hello, I'm the Oversight Committee member with an interest and past professional experience in I18N, so I'm probably the keeper of the roadmap. The roadmap starts with Dallan reworking the site to use the latest version of Mediawiki. We hope that will get us a good base of features useful for internationalization, so at that point we can identify the deficiencies and start implementing them. At that point we will probably also constitute an I18N committee. Let me encourage you to use the site as it is, and try entering East Asian Unicode text manually instead of via Gedcom, and keep a log of what besides the Gedcom uploader is problematic. --Pkeegstra 11:44, 11 November 2013 (UTC)


Hi! Thanks for the intro. I am trying to build a family heritage records (in Chinese), and I figure it requires a lot of work from one person, if I want it be done, say, professionally. That is how I came across this website, because a Wikipedia-like platform let everyone to contribute a little bit of information to his/her family. I really like the idea and concept behind WeRelate project; however, I am just wondering the current status of WeRelate as now it's open-sourced (or being open-sourced), and where this project is heading to afterwards? i.e., more web features? format review? code structure refactor?

I'd love to contribute to this project with my skills and knowledge as I write software/program in RL. In the meantime I am trying to fill in my family records in Chinese online. Let me know if there's anything that I can assist with to make this site better:)--Shannaracat 11:00, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
