Next step: Review your GEDCOM [12 October 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 Queen 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.

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.

Problems with your gedcom file [14 October 2010]

Hi, Thanks for attending to your gedcom review so promptly. I see that you have tried to fix some of the problems. Please stop and take a look at some of the others. We have people such as John Franklin Queen who can't possibly belong to the parents assigned. And Edna Petty is born after she was married. It's a lot better to get all of the warnings checked and fixed before the data is mingled in the shared database and published to the web. Also, please do not exclude your sources. They are very important. I'm returning the file to the user review status. Just click Ready to Import again after you are done. --Judy (jlanoux) 06:41, 14 October 2010 (EDT) (WeRelate volunteer)

Answers for User Tarbet

Hello Tarbet, Sorry for the confusion I thought you would see my response to your question on my Talk Page (DFree). I have copied and pasted this to your Talk Page so you may see it. I hope this answers your questions.

Copied and pasted from User Tarbet's questions on User DFree's Talk Page

Notes [13 October 2010] I found some notes from another tree which I incorporated into my tree. I wanted to give proper attribution, but I don't know how to tell who's tree the notes came from. Can you help?

JIm Tarbet--Tarbet 20:15, 12 October 2010 (EDT)

Hello Tarbet,

First if possible it is polite to try to contact the person where you located this information. Ask their permission to use this information. If not possible please give some proper sourcing citation. If not possible to get hold of someone please indicate which website and or web page you located these notes. I would probably do a basic outline about the notes. Why it was important, who it is about, who originated these notes. Did the person connected to the web page or website write these notes, or did someone else write to this person. i.e. is it a copy and paste of the notes, or is it research notes written by the person connected to the web page.

In your WeRelate Mysource/Source "Jane (Smith) Roberts notes" in the small box under the WeRelate MySource or Source write

Examples:

Website: Rootsweb - Name of the database: "Mike's Tree" - Name of Person: (if know person): Mike Murphy Date: (the latest date database was updated) Jan 02, 1999. Ancestor: Jane (Smith) Roberts (1800-1880) - Note: what about the note is important-

Hope this helps Debbie Freeman --DFree 22:21, 12 October 2010 (EDT)



[add comment] [edit topic]▼My Sources Page [14 October 2010] Debbie, I am in possession of several documents from my close family. I would like to make them available to other researchers as scanned images. can these images be placed on a "My Sources" page for all to see and download if they like?

By the way, I like your photo. It looks like we share a liking for Crackerbarrel. Is that where the photo was taken?

Jim Tarbet--Tarbet 06:20, 14 October 2010 (EDT)

Hello Jim, The only big question is the copyright issue. If you have the copyright or the permission of the copyright holder, or it is an unknown copyright holder then yes you can add the image. There are help pages on WeRelate about copyright. When you upload the images please title the images something unique so you can locate it and other WeRelate User's do not accidentally think it is their images. I have a habit of adding my User name in the image title. An example could be Image "Tarbet Williams Bible" and then create a MySource Williams Bible. Since it is a MySource your User name will be added to the title by the system so you do not need to add it to the MySource. You then connect the image to the MySource. You then can add the MySource to the People Pages.

Thank You, Yes your right the photo was taken at a Cracker Barrell. Good Luck, Debbie Freeman --DFree 13:47, 14 October 2010 (EDT)



[add comment] [edit topic]▼2nd Question RE Tree Branches [14 October 2010] Debbie, In reading some of your previous answers I noticed you said something about loading the different branches of your tree as separate trees. My question is, do you recommend that I create a new tree for each of the major branches in my tree? I only have four. One each for the family names of my parents and my wife's parents. The other option, I guess, is to add each branch to my existing wiki tree and merge them. I need simple!! So which method do you recommend?


Jim Tarbet--Tarbet 07:37, 14 October 2010 (EDT)

Hello Jim, The last I knew and I think is still true is it all depends on the amount of people in your family file (GEDCOM). If you have thousands of people in your GEDCOM file then the system will probably have a fit. This is on the list of "to do". Please divide it into smaller GEDCOM files so the people are in the hundreds. WeRelate prefers hundreds or less. And remember after you upload the GEDCOM you then need to go thru the WeRelate upload steps, check the warnings, etc. I do not know which program you use to keep track of your ancestors but many GEDCOM programs (Family Tree Maker, Legacy, etc) should have a problem report or something like that. It will tell you if a mother is too young to give birth to this child, etc. That way you can fix many problems before you upload it to WeRelate. WeRelate does have a help page for GEDCOM upload page to help you. You might want to check it out before you upload the GEDCOM. Please also remember "NO LIVING PEOPLE, OR CONTACT INFO OF LIVING PEOPLE PLEASE!!" like real addresses, phone numbers, etc this is on the Internet. Anyone can see this.

If you are like some of us you might find other WeRelate User's who are researching the same ancestors I try to contact the other User about that ancestor and try to play nicely before I merge the ancestors page (sometimes they reply but on occasion they do not, it is not necessary just being polite). Good Luck, Debbie Freeman --DFree 14:14, 14 October 2010 (EDT)

Image Help [15 October 2010]

Hello Jim, You are very close. You have the right key on your keyboard but need to choose the straight brackets not the curvy one. If I remember right you just need to do the bracket key for the straight bracket, for the curvy one you do more than one keystroke. The Shift key plus the bracket key together. Also I think but could be wrong you need to upload your image into the images area of WeRelate first and then add the link to your user page. I looked and it does not look like you have uploaded your image yet? Good Luck, Debbie Freeman --DFree 15:35, 15 October 2010 (EDT)

Hello Jim, If I understand you about adding your name under your image you can choose edit, and then add your name in the text box where you talked about yourself. Then choose Save. Good Luck, Debbie Freeman --DFree 15:50, 15 October 2010 (EDT)

On that review web page on the top of the page probably in small letters is the different tabs warnings, etc. Follow the instructions and your are set.

tarbetonly.ged issues [16 October 2010]

Hi, Again I thank you for so promptly handling the review of your gedcom upload. However, I need to ask you to slow down a bit and do a thorough review, fixing the problems indicated. As an example: Frank Thurston Tarbet and his son seem to share a birth date. You have census data needed to correct this. The warnings are intended to help you fix such problems before your data is mingled with that of the other users. Since WeRelate is a shared database and not a collection of separate gedcom files, we do expect that the review be used for cleanup. Remember each item on the Person, Family and Source tabs will create a web page. Thanks. --Judy (jlanoux) 13:21, 16 October 2010 (EDT) (WeRelate volunteer)

Debbie says you want to remove the file. You can do this with the button on the Overview tab. This is a helpful feature of review. Upload the file; note and fix problems in your original data; then remove the file and upload a new fixed one. It has the advantage that you only have to fix once and also that you can work in your more familiar environment. You can post any questions you may have here on your own talk page. I am watching. --Judy (jlanoux) 14:08, 16 October 2010 (EDT)

Next step: Review your GEDCOM [19 October 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 newtonfamily.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 files (or families) and importing them one at a time, which makes the review and correction process easier.

Duplicate gedcom? [20 October 2010]

Hi, I see that you have another Newtonfamily.ged marked ready for import. I though I imported Newtonfamily on the 18th. I just want to make sure that you intended to send it again. If it is intended and you have finished handling the warnings, I'll import it for you. Please let me know by replying here. I'm still watching. Thanks. --Judy (jlanoux) 16:47, 20 October 2010 (EDT)

Newtons [21 October 2010]

Could you explain what's going on with the gedcom I uploaded on the Newton's, and what am I supposed to do with all the changes that are happening?

All the changes that are happening represent collaboration, which is what this website is about. Your GEDCOM caused me to get notified of some changes it generated, and as a result, I looked at the pages on the family of John Newton and Hannah Parkhurst. I was dismayed by the lack of sources. In a community of people who don't know each other, and have no idea about the ability, training and thoroughness of their fellow researchers, providing the sources of the entered data is the only way to give it credibility. Otherwise, one assumes it was simply copied from the first website that had the right name on it. After looking at many pages, now I know that most of your data was based on the Newton Genealogy, which isn't a bad source, but it wasn't clearly indicated on many of the pages. Knowing you were new to WeRelate, I attempted to help by:

  1. adding more source citations, favoring primary records, like the vital records of Marlborough and Southborough, which happen to be readily available in this case
  2. documenting not just the date of birth, but also the place of birth, etc.
  3. providing more complete data where it was readily available, like showing all of a person's marriages, not just the one who created the ancestor

This process has great benefits, as you may have seen, since it uncovered several errors. There was one flat-out disagreement, in the marriage of Benjamin Wilder and Patience Newton, where published Marlborough town records said 1764 and the Newton Genealogy said 1767. One of them probably mis-transcribed the handwritten town records, and this can only be determined for sure, by checking the handwritten records. --Jrich 10:40, 21 October 2010 (EDT)


Person:Frank Hunt (7) & Person:Card M Gibson (2) [23 October 2010]

Hello Jim, I noticed on these two ancestors there is no dates or locations could you please verify their information and or look them up on the census and add their dates and locations please? That would be preferred and a big help for all. Thanks Debbie Freeman --DFree 15:04, 23 October 2010 (EDT)

Could you also please locate and add the marriage date and place of marriage for Family:Frank Hunt and Addie Clarine Newton (2)? Thanks Debbie Freeman --DFree 15:34, 23 October 2010 (EDT)


Merge People and Families? [24 October 2010]

Hello Tarbet,

I was wondering if you have looked to see how many of the people and marriages are available to merge? i.e. someone else is also researching the same person or family on WeRelate. You have quite a few marriages where you have only one spouses date of birth or and date of death. You should be able to easily see how many you can merge by now. Could you try please. Or could you locate and add these dates and places please Thanks Debbie Freeman --DFree 20:59, 23 October 2010 (EDT)


Queen update.GED appears to overlap a previously-imported GEDCOM [28 October 2010]

The pages from this GEDCOM have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate.

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM and you want to replace that tree with this GEDCOM, you need to delete that tree first so duplicates aren't created when you import this GEDCOM. Click on Trees in the "My Relate" menu, then click on the "delete" link next to that tree. Please be aware that any pages in the tree that are being watched by others won't get deleted. Once that tree is deleted you can create a new tree and re-upload this GEDCOM into it. (We're planning to make re-uploading GEDCOM files much simpler soon.)

If you don't think you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM, or if the two GEDCOM's don't overlap that much, leave a message for Dallan or send an email to dallan@WeRelate.org and we'll go ahead with the import.

Gedcom warnings [31 October 2010]

Hi, I reviewed your latest file for you. Please take care of the two items on the warning tab before we import and they get lost. Both are pretty clearly errors. The second one has mother and son born on the same day. The first one has wife died before a bunch of her children were born. I'm returning it to user review status so you can work on it. Just go back to Import tab and click the ready button when you're done. Thanks --Judy (jlanoux) 11:06, 31 October 2010 (EDT) (WeRelate volunteer) [moved from Jlanoux talk for continuity] Could you also put the edit button back on the people pages in GEDCOM review.I'm, not possitive, but I think it was there before.

Thanks

Jim--Tarbet 13:39, 31 October 2010 (EDT)


Jim, I just checked and do see the edit link on the Person pages in Review. It is just below the page title (i.e. Person:James Queen (I3468 gedcom)) - it's a little blue link. If you don't see it, can you try a different browser? If it turns out to be a browser issue, please let us know.

You can reply here, I'm watching. --Judy (jlanoux) 16:11, 31 October 2010 (EDT)

Moses Newton [20 January 2011]

If you have any evidence/sources connecting the Sarah Howe who married Moses Newton (Family:Moses Newton and Sarah How (1)) to Family:Thomas Howe and Sarah Hosmer (1), please share it. I am creating pages for the Howe families and will replace Thomas' daughter Sarah with John's daughter Sarah in the near future unless there is some evidence for keeping the existing connection. I have found none. As explained on the Talk page, we know Pelatiah Rice married a Sarah Newton whose father was John Howe, and the only Mr. Newton in Marlborough Vital Records that married a Sarah How/Howe is Moses in 1725 (and his father in 1695, but that Sarah How would be too old to be the daughter of John Howe b. 1671 - sister or cousin maybe - or to marry Pelatiah Rice b. 1694.) --Jrich 18:28, 31 October 2010 (EDT)


Received your question today. For this branch (Newton) I relied entirely on "The Newton Genealogy" and did not try to confirm her information.

Thank you for making the change! Jim Tarbet--Tarbet 08:17, 20 January 2011 (EST)


Hello, several months later [20 January 2011]

Hi Tarbet:

I'm glad you got something out of my simple advice. Sorry I've been so long in replying; I had a computer transition to the Mac side, but it took a while to get up and running with Parallels to keep my genealogy from going the way of the dodo. Now I'm focused on a new addition to the family, expected in a few weeks. I'm pretty sure this little fellow will be the last of my own personal twigs, if my wife has anything to say about it.

Take care and have fun! --Brad Patrick 00:39, 20 January 2011 (EST)


Newton info [1 February 2011]

Jim, thanks for your comment. I have a lot of info on the descendants of Reuben Newton of Vermont and Cattaraugus County. As time permits I will add to werelate and correct some minor errors I see. If your are interested I have documented hundreds of descendants, many with biographical sketches included, at myronnewton.com Any insight or thoughts are appreciated and, perhaps, your connection.--Grumpynewt 13:23, 1 February 2011 (EST)


Damon Torbett [14 July 2011]

I don't know if you received the response I left previously so I will try this again..I'm not used to this format. The story that I heard just a couple of years ago is that there was indeed a dispute of some sort re saw mills. I was told my own great-grandfather was accused of shooting Mr. Torbett but that someone else later confessed..I do not know any thing further..My great grandfather was Thomas Franklin Finch... his mother was a Hood that is why I was curious as to the first name of the Mr. Hood you referred to. I did look up Fred Torbett..he is listed on ancestry.com as being born on April 8th, 1892 in Arkansas and Passing away on January 28, 1966 in Norco,Riverside Ca. He is listed as the youngest child of Damon Torbett. I hope I have not upset you in any way I know this happend many,many years ago and it has been a difficult thing to think of a family member being involved in. Wishing you the best..Jan(Jeanetta) Finch-Lee--Netta lee 14:51, 14 July 2011 (EDT)


Damon Torbett [14 July 2011]

I agree that research is necessary to determine exactly what happend. I honestly don't know if I want to know if my great-grandfather had anything to do with it at all! My cousin is extremly interested in the story and is trying to dig deeper..I have tried finding articles about the shooting for the time and place with no success..and yes..I thought the same thing about the little boy. I will let you know should anything new come up..and you as well. Regards.....--Netta lee 19:18, 14 July 2011 (EDT)
