Welcome to WeRelate, your virtual genealogical community. We're glad you have joined us. At WeRelate you can easily create ancestor web pages, connect with cousins and other genealogists, and find new information.
We strongly recommend that you spend a few minutes taking our. It provides a brief overview of how to use the features of WeRelate. A little time spent here may save you time later. There are also in-depth text tutorials available from the Help button.
The next 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 an 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 would make navigating your tree very slow.
Connect with other genealogists
You should always sign in when you are editing or adding pages. Use the signature button (second button from the right in the menu bar above the edit box) to sign your comments on discussion pages. 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.
Shared research pages
Shared research pages act like specialized message boards. Be careful to use only one name spelling and one location in each field; do not use abbreviations. Including postal codes and multiple spellings, names, or locations in these fields will cause your pages to be improperly indexed. It will make it harder for your cousins to find your pages and work with you. For more information see Shared research pages.

Cardin, Thanks so much for providing information about Anna Eva Flath as the correct spouse. Would you be willing to edit her husband's page, making this point, and citing the source you've provided? Sounds like you're most familiar with this family. Thanks! jillaine 13:18, 20 September 2009 (EDT)
Johannes Osterwald [18 April 2012]
Hi. I have researched my Oswalt family in PA. Johan Jacob Osterwald arrived on the ship Windsor 26 Sept 1753. took oath 27 Sept 1753 in Philadelphia. The information I have is he came over with wife and daughter Catherine. Had a son Tobias July 1755, his wife died shortly after, about 3 months. He then married a Rebecca Huston, they had 4 children together. They resided in Bedford County PA by 175?. I am confused a bit. The man in my tree went by Jacob Oswalt, which there are many. I have seen on other ship records that there was a Hans Jacob Oswald in 1753, and a Johannes Jacob Osterwald that came over about 1738 as well as a possible brother Henry. I hope we can clear this up as to who is who.
Thanks, Patti, my email is email@example.com.--Oswalt 15:11, 18 April 2012 (EDT)
