Hello Debbie, I'm at work now and shouldn't be playing on the internet. I watched several of the tutorials and I think tonight I will download my gedcom at home. Thank you for the encouragement. Talk to you soon, Cyndi--Genearchivist 14:35, 12 April 2011 (EDT)

Next step: Review your GEDCOM [12 April 2011]

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 DeBock USA 2011.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.

Location of Ballymoon [22 April 2011]

Hi Genearchivist,

I see that you have changed the location of Ballymoon, and wondered what your source is for the new location and date.

The original page had the location of Ballymoon Townland at 52.69376°N 6.915379°W

Genearchivist relocated it to 52.835975°N 6.9245496°W - the centre of the town of Carlow.

There are several reasons to justify the location at the original place, not in Carlow town, for example, see GoogleMap for Ballymoon - about 2 miles East of Bagenalstown.

Also, the Wikipedia article for Ballymoon Castle locates it east of Bagenalstown.

What is the source for the Townland information placing it in Carlow?

The list of Townlands in Carlow on Wikipedia gives Ballymoon as being in the Barony of Idrone, which is around Bagenalstown.

Also, the townland name certainly pre-dates 1922; the castle of that name is 13th century.

See also the page on Dudley Bagenal who was killed at Ballymoon; in 1587. The description of his killing describes the place as well - a few miles from his castle at Leighlinbridge. The ambush was certainly not in the middle of Carlow town.
