Hello - [13 July 2008]

Nice to hear from you, and while I would be happy to help, I doubt that I can. Let me explain:

The original GEDCOM file really doesn't continue to exist after upload. Instead, it becomes a linked set of person and family pages. When additional names are families are uploaded (by anyone) that happen to have the same names, they just get the next sequential index number.

It turns out however, that family pages have an interesting idiosyncrasy. For family pages composed of a known given and family name for both the husband and wife (no "unknown"), it is extremely likely that duplicated family names are - in fact - identical (something over 99.5% of the time in my experience). Using that information I've been working very hard to resolve duplicated families and people so that werelate moves toward becoming a single huge family tree space with fewer and fewer needless duplicates (and a larger continuous genealogy space).

My personal information (3000 or so people) really doesn't overlap other work to any significant degree. The other 18,000 or so pages that I'm watching certainly do have overlaps - but I'm watching them only because they contained overlaps that I resolved (or tried to resolve).

When the GEDCOM download comes however, you'll be able to download your area of interest - and even add to it - because the tree will just extend beyond the edges of where your work ended - and include information that it didn't before.--Jrm03063 15:57, 13 July 2008 (EDT)


[13 July 2008]

Thanks - at present I only use "werelate". I don't have a GEDCOM since I downloaded (from ancestry.com) and moved my GEDCOM last Fall (that was when I cut over to "werelate"). The GEDCOM I got from ancestry was pretty much a disaster - it took me several weeks (maybe months?) to clean up the results once they got to "werelate".

Also, most of my changes came from consolidating the pages that other people uploaded. That's where the additional 18,000 or so people on my watch list come from.

The only reason I want to get a GEDCOM of my work back is as an emergency backup. I'm really happy working over the net.

You still around? [21 April 2013]

I've been merging and cleaning up a lot of Wheeler pages, including pages you're marked to watch. While I have some Wheelers in my database, I'm not nearly as informed about the surname as others. (Although I've recently learned more than I ever thought I'd want to know...). I'd appreciate it if you'd look over what I've done, including the initial drafting of Wheeler_in_Massachusetts and Wheeler_in_Connecticut pages. I'm certain I've made some errors but I've been so in the weeds of the Wheelers, that I'm not sure I can see properly anymore. I'd appreciate your help and guidance. Thanks. jillaine 18:12, 30 November 2008 (EST)


Hi,

Thank you for all you do. I rarely get on this site, and I just noticed your message. I exported a gedcom file from here. I hope it has all the fixes that you and others made.

I am working on a genealogy tool that creates a Roots-life presentation from a gedcom file. The website is called slideTrip.com--Waterart 13:17, 21 April 2013 (EDT)


Robert Parke & Martha Chaplin - Merge ? [5 January 2009]

Hello Waterart,

This couple is listed on my merge list. I looked and there are only three of us, you, Claudiakerr, and myself that are active on Werelate this year, though this couple seem to have about five Werelate users listing this couple. There is a wide variation on the information on this couple between the five of us. Would you like to merge this couple

Next step: Review your GEDCOM [8 October 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 juleneDadSideUseToWeRelate.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.

Click here to review your GEDCOM

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.
