Place names [1 October 2007]

Hi, thanks so much for participating! I am an admin for WeRelate. Its my job to help people get the most out of WeRelate. You may be wondering your your place names with the "?'s" are red links. Generally a red link means that this place is not in the place index. In this case the computer thinks the "United States?" is a different place from the plain ole "United States." This isn't bad, it just means that that your event will not show up on the pedigree map or be indexed in a place category.

Just FYI, if you are entering a well known place and get a red link, chances are it's in the index but listed differently. Type in the town, county, or district followed by a comma. Wait a few moments and a list of all the possible places in the index will drop down. Many places change their names even countries, these renamed places will appear at top of the list. Scroll down to your place and click on it. If your place is not on the list, type in Town, County, Country (do not use abbreviations) and save the page. When you click on the red link you can create a new place page for that place. If you include the latitude and longitude or if it is contained in a county or country already in the system, it will appear on your pedigree map. Let me know if you need any help. :)--sq 23:40, 1 October 2007 (EDT)


Mary Abigail Hawkins Barnhart [22 March 2008]

Hi Fellow searcher

I am Merlyn Chaffin the great grandson of William Franklin, and Mary Abigail Hawkins Barnhart.  In looking at your site I see where you have her birth date as 1856.  I am sending you a copy of her obit showing where I have 1858.

!OBITUARY: source; Joliet Journal Friday, Aug 28, 1908

! A SAD DEATH

! Mrs. Mary E, Barnhart, of Bridger, who was paying her sister, Mrs. C. Christopherson of

     this place, a visit, was taken very ill a few days ago, and on Tuesday of this week she died,
     and her remains were laid to rest the following day in the Rockvale cemetery.
            Mrs. Barnhart was born in Utah, December 20, 1858.  She leaves ten children, beside
     many other relatives and freinds to mourn her death.  One of her daughters is now Mrs. Joseph
     France, formerly of Fromberg, but more recently of Belfry, and who was at her mother's
     funeral.      

Maybe you can help me clear this up as to what is the true death date. Would love to exchage info with you on this family. Thank you for your Time Merlyn Chaffin--Idahomoylen 00:04, 22 March 2008 (EDT)

Person and Family page titles [18 January 2010]

Hello, I am a volunteer admin here at WeRelate. I noticed that you have many pages that have dashes in the title (they can be found from this search). These dashes cause problems for our search and category functions. Please take some time to rename these pages, substituting Unknown for the dashes, and edit the given and surname fields as appropriate. Let me know if you have any questions, thank you!--Jennifer (JBS66) 15:30, 18 January 2010 (EST)


Elizabeth Hawkins [14 March 2010]

I'm new to this so not sure I'm doing this right but I'll try. You are involved in record for Elizabeth Hawkins born about 1666 in Boston. I have an Elizabeth Hawkins in my family tree who married Benjamin Turner on 14 Apr 1692 in Scituate, MA. The Mayflower Society has records (MFIP Brewster 29) of the marriage and that Elizabet lived to about 1740-1744 and that she was from Boston. Not sure what I should do now. Can we assume they are same person? Ages work out right (would have been married at age ~28) and none of info conflicts (but none confirms either)--Sparrell 22:19, 13 March 2010 (EST)

Duplicate families [3 December 2011]

Hi Tombwhisperz,

When you have a moment, please take a look at your Duplicates List by going to My Relate>Show Duplicates. It’s a good idea to check this list on a regular basis. There are a few families there that are potential matches. We have an ongoing site-wide project to merge duplicates, but it is always better if somebody familiar with the families can make the merge. Here is our help page on merging. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks! --Jennifer (JBS66) 07:48, 3 December 2011 (EST)


Person/Family page titles [15 June 2012]

Hello Tombwhisperz, I noticed that you renamed a few pages to titles such as "Augusta Shultus 1st wife of Harlon Bruce Hawkins (2)".

Please note that WeRelate's convention for titling Person pages is Firstname Lastname only. For Family pages, the convention is still Firstname Lastname with the husband's name first and the wife's name second (using the maiden name of the wife). Please do not include any additional information, including middle names, in page titles. You can include this information when Editing a page. Also, when renaming pages, you do not need to include the index number at the end of the title - the software will assign this automatically.

I renamed a few of your pages to follow this convention such as Person:Augusta Shultus (1) and Family:Harlon Hawkins and Augusta Shultus (1). If you have any questions, just let me know. Thank you, --Jennifer (JBS66) 06:10, 15 June 2012 (EDT)
