Welcome to the WeRelate virtual genealogical community. Here we can learn from each other, work together and find what we need to make our research easier, more rewarding and fun.
You can create a free profile, Shared research pages and Personal research pages. Shared research pages are the next generation in message boards: they can be organized and edited. When you create a Shared research page title on your home page, the link will appear in red. Click on the red link, enter a message and save. (Creating a title for the page is not enough, your cousins can only search for pages with content.) Personal research pages are password protected wiki pages: visible to the community but editable only by you.
Person and Family pages are up and running. Take 10 minutes to see video tutorial/tour for people pages. You can view sample person and family pages (all you do is ), annotated pictures, and with color coded migration maps. Check out a sneak preview of our new Family Tree Explorer, With this tool you can easily navigate and add pages to your famliy tree, view descendancy trees and ancestral trees for each person and view a sortable index of your tree.
If you are new to Wiki's, you may wish to check our many help and tutorial pages. Or, you can select edit on any page to see how the formatting commands are used. (You could click edit at the top of this page, for example.) You may also be interested in Recent Changes. Here you will see a list of all recent edits. Please help by deleting any spam or inappropriate material.
We are adding new features and material, frequently. Your comments would be greatly appreciated at the Watercooler. If you have any questions, please email me. Again thank you for participation. Enjoy! --sq
Thanks for uploading your GEDCOM! We found some bugs in the first batch that we uploaded, so we're fixing them and we hope to have your file uploaded by the end of tomorrow (Wednesday). -Nathan 21:55, 13 February 2007 (MST)
Your GEDCOM has been uploaded! Let us know what you think or report bugs on Dallan's discussion page.
Images in gedcom upload
This is just a quick note to let you know that we saved the filenames of the images referenced in the gedcom that you uploaded. In about a week we plan to provide an easy way for you to upload those images to WeRelate if you want to. Also, we saved the LDS ordinance information and will provide a way for you to view and edit this information also in about a week.--Dallan 14:54, 18 February 2007 (MST)
Isaac Griffith death date [20 November 2009]
I deleted the 1744 death date for Isaac. It seems very unlikely that he died in 1744, if he moved to Maryland in 1769.--Peggytrobinson 15:43, 20 November 2009 (EST)
Rachel Burson (1) and Rachel Burson (2) [22 November 2009]
I think the two Rachels are the same person and the pages could be merged. I am not opposed to using the 1732 birth date instead of the 1735. I find other researchers with the following information that may or may not be all wet: 1 - Possibly born 1732 or 1736 2 - Possibly died 1736 or 1767 or 1787 3 - Possibly died in Loudoun, VA 4 - Possibly married John Oklaker and had 4 children 5 - Possibly married in 1762 Hugh Orlton and had 1 child
Let me know what you think - at the least I think the Rachel Burson (1) and Rachel Burson (2) should be merged. The birth date changed to 1732 and the death place left at Loudoun, VA. The other information can be left alone until verified somehow.
