Welcome to WeRelate! 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 your GEDCOM, your next step is to preview what your pages will look like and combine (merge) people in your GEDCOM with matching people already on WeRelate. When you have finished your review, your GEDCOM will be imported..

Hi, I fixed one of your place links so you could see how it is done. You don't have to link to place pages but it will help index your pages properly. WeRelate has the largest documented place database in the world. You might want to click on the link I created to see. Pages often have history, research tips, geo-coordinates, timelines, etc. You will need the links if you would like to see a pedigree map. Click on the Pedimap link from the more menu after you have place links. Hope this helps. :) --sq 14:17, 28 July 2009 (EDT)
Thanks, Solveig. I appreciate the help, and will go back through and correct the links I made in the text of the two files on which I worked today. I value any feedback you want to share as I work on my pages.--Wdlindsy 16:19, 28 July 2009 (EDT)
Samuel Kerr and Mary Calhoun [9 October 2009]
Hi Bill, I agree wholeheartedly with your observations on Samuel Kerr. Since I don't like to discount other people's opinions "out-of-hand", I've kept the original reference, but added the following citation (with your assistance) to Samuel and Mary's page:
but since this Samuel Kerr's daughter Jane was clearly born on 8 Oct. 1768 (as verified on her headstone), a Samuel Kerr born in 1759 would have been only 9 years old at the birth of his daughter, which would have been quite impossible. Given the absence of another more credible candidate, this Samuel Kerr (b. 1741) certainly appears to be an excellent fit as the husband of Mary Calhoun.
Thanks for the assistance and your kind comments. Since I've been compiling information on the Kerr's of Augusta County for many years, I believe most of the information on them is fairly well researched and fact-based.... :)

Agree with you 1000%. Feel free to share whatever you find in the future. I'm spending most of my time working on many of the early families of Augusta County, which is turning into quite an undertaking.... ;)
