Welcome to WeRelate, your virtual genealogical community. We're glad you have joined us. At WeRelate you can easily create ancestor webpages, connect with cousins and other genealogists and find new information.
The first thing to do is, then select File in the Family Tree Explorer menu and give your family tree a name. Then you 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 a 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 and surname, and 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 caching is not permanent and only lasts as long as you are at WeRelate each time.
Connect with other genealogists
You should always sign in when you are editing or adding pages. Use the signature button to sign your work (the swiggle, second from the right, above the edit box). 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 second level menu bar above.

You still around? [1 December 2008]
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 18:11, 30 November 2008 (EST)
Yep - still here although haven't been doing much in the way of genealogy lately. I was just reviewing your question regarding Thomas Wheeler as to whether he left Concord for Connecticut and then returned. That's what I'm digging into now.--Wheeler 19:19, 30 November 2008 (EST)
Family connection???? [16 January 2010]
I am Carl Estus, born and raised in Chautauqua County, NY.
My GGgrandfather Albert Orland Estus was born in Cayuga County, NY in 1848.
There is a family rumor that he was born a Wheeler and after a falling out with his father took his mother's maiden name.
I stumbled across this Albert Wheeler that died in Cayuga County in 1886 and got to wondering - is there a connection?
I also have found and Orlando Estus of Cayuga County born in 1825 which may explain Albert Estus' middle name.
Do you have any info with regards to the above?
r.s Carl Estus
