Next step: Review your GEDCOM [20 September 2012]

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 Forbes Family Tree.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.

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.

Admin Edits [6 October 2012]


Welcome to WeRelate. You'll see I've made several administrative edits to your pages this evening. It is very much appreciated that you have created pages with multiple good sources, and these are just part of normal administrative review of new edits intended to conform your pages to some of our best practices, including linking to Find A Grave and census Source Pages. If you have any questions about any of the changes, please let me know. Again, welcome and thank you for your efforts.--Amelia 00:55, 7 October 2012 (EDT)

Census [10 January 2013]


I notice you've been creating census sources - thank you. When adding the template, please also add the appropriate category, in the form [[Category:YEAR State census]] - i.e., [[Category:1880 Wisconsin census]]. Thanks!--Amelia 23:50, 10 January 2013 (EST)

Levi Armstrong [29 August 2013]


I have been reviewing some of your Levi Armstrong family information. I note that it appears you may be missing one of their daughters, my great grandmother, Ara Armstrong.

Ara married William Orlando Butler Brown. Your Catherine Armstrong Johnson was my father's favorite aunt.

I can be reached at for further data.


Ruth Brown Blanlenbaker--Rblanken3 21:55, 16 July 2013 (EDT)

Thanks for the tip! I looked into Ara, and you're absolutely right. I missed her name on the 1860 census. I filled out some basic info for her and her husband if you want to take a look.[1] I also came across this post, which looks fairly accurate as a starting point [2] Do your closer relatives have pages already set up? I'd be happy to help connect our family trees.--Forbes72 19:07, 29 August 2013 (EDT)
