GEDCOMs uploaded

Your GEDCOMs have been uploaded, and you may access the people from them either via the Family Tree Explorer or through clicking on the family tree page on your user page. Sorry about the delay -- we had an internal processing error which was addressed. -Nathan 11:23, 21 March 2007 (MDT)

Hi Kristy - this is Brad. I really like what you've done. When did you get so computer literate?

My user name on here is bradmort.


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.

Create Webpages

The first thing to do is launch Family Tree Explorer, then select File in the Family Tree Explorer menu and give your family tree a name. You can 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 (first name) and surname (last name), 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 light green second level menu bar above.

Great things you can do at WeRelate

Please see the Great things you can do at WeRelate article.

Thanks for participating in your virtual community.--sq 23:52, 23 March 2007 (MDT)

Sharing Pedigree.ged is being held for review

The pages from "Sharing Pedigree.ged" have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate. Please be patient while we take a look at your GEDCOM. If it turns out that the people in Sharing Pedigree.ged are different from people you have imported previously, your pages will be generated right after the review, which should happen tomorrow (or Monday if tomorrow falls on a weekend).

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in Sharing Pedigree.ged, we need to ask for your patience. We don't at present have a way to auto-merge people from multiple GEDCOM submissions, so if Sharing Pedigree.ged includes people you have previously imported, importing Sharing Pedigree.ged will create duplicate pages that you will have to merge later by hand. In the near future we will allow you to delete the pages generated by your previous GEDCOM submission and start over with a new GEDCOM. Until then please be patient. We will notify you as soon as deleting pages is available.

Error importing Sharing Pedigree.paf

We had an error while attempting to import Sharing Pedigree.paf. This is most likely our fault. We will review the error and should have your pages ready tomorrow (or Monday if tomorrow falls on a weekend). There is no need to re-import your GEDCOM file.

-WeRelate agent 22:07, 2 April 2007 (MDT)

Overlapping GEDCOMs

The GEDCOM you just uploaded seems to be very similar to a GEDCOM you have previously uploaded. Soon we will have a feature available so that you delete a GEDCOM previously uploaded and then re-upload a new version of the GEDCOM. This feature should be available by the end of next week.

-Nathan 07:53, 3 April 2007 (MDT)

Sorry about this -- I see that you deleted your old family tree file. I'll put your new GEDCOM in the queue immediately to be generated. -Nathan 10:37, 9 April 2007 (MDT)

Are you the Kristy Spillane that worked at Coulter Consulting Group?


If this is you, I'd like to talk to you! I miss you and would very much like to catch up. I've started my own blog (, and am having a ball with it. I am not trying to rope you in to any new business opportunities, since that ended in disaster before. If you're the Kristy that was my roommate in Ohio in the early nineties, please contact me at! I want to know what's going on with you. You were always one of my favorite people, and it is a shame when we lose those we connect with on so many levels. If this is a different Kristy, please forgive the intrusion. Thanks! James L. (Jamie) Greenlee, Las Vegas, NV

Hancock [18 December 2007]

You have a very common error about the Hancock line from Thomas Hancock you have Thomas III Hancock as being married to his mother. I have found many people with that error since there are so many Thomas's in the line. I could provide you with the correct information if you want. My email is feel free to email me. I also have a very long stretch going back to the 1600s. Hope you have fun. Lee Myers--Lostincyberspace 15:17, 18 December 2007 (EST)
