WMSHUFF.GED appears to overlap a previously-imported GEDCOM [30 July 2008]

The pages from this GEDCOM have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate.

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM and you want to replace that tree with this GEDCOM, you need to delete that tree first so duplicates aren't created when you import this GEDCOM. Go to the Family Tree page, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the "delete" link next to that tree. Please be aware that any pages in that tree that are being watched by others won't get deleted. Once that tree is deleted you can create a new tree and re-upload this GEDCOM into it. (We're planning to make re-uploading GEDCOM files much simpler later this Fall.)

If you don't think you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM, or if the two GEDCOM's don't overlap that much, leave a message for Dallan or send an email to and we'll go ahead with the import.

Image license [7 August 2008]

Hi, I just got assigned to go through the "review needed" category. I see that you have some questions about your documents. I have entered licenses for them. If you disagree, please leave me a message. I marked the above image as public domain because it was published before 1923. Some of your other images I marked either "government publication" or "low resolution copy of unique historical document." If you diagree, please let me know and why and we can analyze it again.

Generally, if an image of a document is public domain if the document is

  • more than 120 years old, or
  • US government document, or
  • a list of facts exhibiting no creativity.

Images of public domain documents are not themselves subject to any additional copyright restriction. It appears that your document meets one of the above requirements.

Delmer Revere Baer [1 September 2008]

I changed his name to Revere but now I figured out with my mom that he was Delmer Revere Baer. He was called Revere all the time. I made lots of changes. I found the info that Hazel my grandmother wrote out all of her life and that is where it comes from. Some of the exact dates that you didn't have, etc. Ruth's middle name was listed as Allien by Hazel.--Jamminjudy 15:56, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Elizabeth Catherine Heller [16 September 2008]

Elizabeth Heller is my second greatgrand mother. Her and her husband John Phillip Thoman Jr.had eleven children. The first born William Jayson Thoman was my 1st greatgrand father. His son Earl Eugene Thoman was my grandfather the sixth child. His son Homer Eugene Thoman was my father.--Homer Hollinmgsworth 21:24, 15 September 2008 (EDT)

I will up load my family tree hopely soon or type the info in. It look like I have some of the same info on the Heller Family but I may have more on the Thoman Family.--Homer Hollinmgsworth 21:54, 16 September 2008 (EDT)

--- Hello Homer!

I hope you will visit the HELLER tree and add any updates you have to my information. Please return to the Heller Tree <--Click there

  • After you have opened it, select on File in the upper left corner of the FTE window and click on copy tree.
  • Type a name for the tree in the My Tree Name field and click copy. Now you, I and your cousins are really working on the same pages in the same tree!

I hope we can collaborate on your branch of the HELLER family with this adoption process. (Even if you decide to upload your own separate tree at a later date, we can then merge all the duplicate people from your tree with mine.) So Please, just now take a few moments to follow the steps above to adopt my Heller Tree as your own as a starting point, and we can add to it or merge then as needed. --Msscarlet1957 22:59, 16 September 2008 (EDT)

Possible family connection & software question [26 September 2008]

My mother and father were avid genealogists until my father passed away. Mother is now 93 so she is no longer as active as she once was. I look forward to the day when I can retire and devote more time to genealogy but until then I'm much more of a dabbler squeezing any research in during the occasional weekend or vacation. My note today is first of all to see if you have any more information on your Creger ancestor. My mother, whose maiden name was Creger, has quite a lot of information that I would be glad to share with you if we can "connect the dots."

I'm also interested in hearing more about your experience with "The Master Genealogist." How easy is it to convert data from FTM to Master Genealogist? I'd hate to lose any of my work. Please feel free to e-mail me at

Regards, -Kathi--Knjacobs 19:12, 22 September 2008 (EDT)

Good news, the Master Genealogist does a direct import of FTM files, so you would not loose thing!

As to the surname "Creger" I do not have any ancestors with that name. Where did you see an entry that would lead you to ask me for that surname? --Msscarlet1957 15:54, 26 September 2008 (EDT)

Volunteer Hours [28 October 2008]

Hi, I am very grateful for your help with WeRelate. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind recording the time you spend helping out. WeRelate is a 501C3 nonprofit organization. In order to keep our tax deductible status, we need to show public support. Time is the same as money. So we ask people who work on projects, or work on things beyond their own stuff to record their time at Volunteer log. Thanks so much.--sq 11:12, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

If you look on the Volunteer page you will see I have entered hours donated there already in the past. Have not done much lately as I am flooded with merge pages I have to do! Does merging My stuff with that of other folks count as volunteer time? I thought not...--Kristy 16:44, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

Clifford Breckenridge Krumm family [27 November 2008]

Hello! I was looking at your site. It's wonderful. I do see a needed update: Clifford Breckenridge Krumm's wife was Donna Maye Hale. She was born May 1922. They married Nov 5, 1943. Hope all is well. Thanks Lisa Krumm--Lisakrumm 05:37, 27 November 2008 (EST)

Bertie Headlee Randall [14 December 2008]

Hi Kris, Bertie Blanche Headlee was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin Headlee and Clara C. King. Her siblings were: Gertie May Headlee, Paul Franklin Headlee and Wilbur Warren Headlee. Benjamin Franklin Headlee was the son of Enos and Sarah Woodruff Headlee and brother to Minerva Headlee who married Richard Young. After Benjamin Headlee died, his widow Clara married Thomas Jefferson Sanford. They had one child, Florence D. Sanford, born Mar 1893, married Frederick James Fletch and died 20 May 1972. Bertie and her first husband, James E. Randall had the following children: Grace R., Clara B., James H., Lillian and Elizabeth. I don't know what happened to James E. Randall but by 1915 Bertie had married a William Ingram who died in 1917. Sue W--Sconwil 22:37, 13 December 2008 (EST)

Thank you Sue. Another way to do this that might be easier for you is to add your new information on the talk page for that person,
  • for example: while you are there on the person page for Bertie Headlee, go up and click on "talk" which give you the talk page for Bertie herself, and place you message on that part. That way, I would still get an email that a change has been made and when I click on the change, within the email notification, it would take me right to Bertie's page. I will go there and paste your above message so you can see what I mean. Thanks again for your collaboration! I just love it! --Kristy 09:44, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Your Cemetery Transcriptions [24 March 2009]

Hi! Over at Place:Zion Lutheran cemetery, Jackson (Township), Seneca, Ohio, United States and Place:St. Joseph Catholic cemetery, Tiffin, Seneca, Ohio, United States I see that you have linked to transcriptions on your personal website, but that the links no longer work. Have you since put the same material up elsewhere, and would you mind updating the links accordingly? If not, then if the transcriptions are your own work, would you mind posting the transcriptions on the cemeteries' place pages here on WeRelate?

You might be interested in the new Cemetery Portal as well. Thanks for your hard work! --JoshHansen 19:51, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

OOPS.. I had the code wrong.. I had added an "|" where one was not needed, so the link did not work, sorry... --Kristy 00:15, 25 March 2009 (EDT)
Thanks for fixing those! --JoshHansen 00:20, 25 March 2009 (EDT)

hi there! [23 July 2009]

I have been doing some family research of my own. I originally started with just helping my mom out with a few small things and then found myself full blown knee deep in it. As far as I can tell with my research Bartholomew Clark is also my 5th great grandfather! So I am sure we are researching a lot of the same family lines! I would be interested in possibly changing info at some point, I am hitting a wall with a lot of names. I am sure a lot of the information I have, you have personally published, but who knows - right? Kind Regards, Gloria Gallagher 02:34, 23 July 2009 (EDT)

Hello Gloria! I am so happy you dropped by to write to me! I have pretty much quit using WeRelate. It is just too complicated to add and edit information. But I leave what I had then here hoping to make connections with people like you using it. Now I use the tree at it is SO much easier to work with and easier to get other people to join in and collaborate with me on it. I have over 3000 photos online there and have over 5000 more to add as I have time, it so much fun! Please write to me at home: I would like to know your ancestry beginning with you and going back to Bartholomew, so I can get you into my database and we can begin collaboration.

Warmest Regards,

Kristina Kuhn Krumm --Kristy 08:30, 23 July 2009 (EDT)

Ohio Death Certificate duplicated page -- I think [31 August 2009]


I'm working on the dups list in the renaming project, and I came up with an odd pair -- both of which you're watching, which is why I thought I'd ask you. Source:United States, Ohio. Death Certificate is described as a website where you can get "High Resolution scans of original document's available online for Free," but the only link is to the main FamilySearch page. Which has nothing to do with this. Source:United States, Ohio. United States, Ohio. Death Certificate (note the duplicated piece of the page title) has even less info. Are these the same website? Do you have an actual address for it? --Mike (mksmith) 17:18, 26 August 2009 (EDT)

1. There is not a way to directly link to the Ohio death's page at Family search. Their page is found at: and from here you must click on the map at the USA, from there it creates a list of databases available, you must scroll down to the "Ohio Deaths 1908-1953" and click on that. They whole project is a pilot site and they are changing URL's all the time, so they say only put the link as

2. Is using an Ohio death certficate "any date" as a source. and the Family search only has 1908-1953 available. so they are "techinically" two different sources. One is a document, one is a website where you can find "some years" of the documents. --Kristy 00:36, 31 August 2009 (EDT)

Hello : ) re: Tiffin, Ohio [17 September 2009]

Hello there : )

I have been adding a transcript Source Transcript; Gilcrest, Robert A. From Gille Chriosd to Gilcrest and have uploaded a gedcom for the people in the book. Eventually I will link everyone in the transcript to their person page... but the reason I am posting this to you is that on p.36-37 of the transcript I uploaded; Source Transcript; Gilcrest, Robert A. From Gille Chriosd to Gilcrest; Nancy Gilcrest a Selina Bakewell Brokaw Person:Selina Brokaw (1) married a John Pence and ""These people are all in the region of Tiffin, Seneca County, Ohio."

and then I saw your featured page mentioning Tiffin. Up until a few days ago, I had never heard of the place.

just thought I would share : ) Amelia J.--88buckaroo 17:35, 17 September 2009 (EDT)

Thanks Kris [13 March 2010]

Kris, I just wanted to thank you for the time and work you have contributed to Ohio genealogists. I haven't found better cemetery records in any other county I have searched. I have only been serious about my family tree since September 2009.

Thanks again.

Inappropriate Place Page Names [23 April 2010]

Just a heads up for you, I think the discussion at the Watercooler on using street adresses as place names might pertain to some of your pages and you may want to review the WeRelate policy on naming place pages. I understand this information probably came from your original genealogy program and uploaded into WeRelate through the GEDOCM process, so I've changed a few of the fact references for you to show you how you can change them without too much effort. Please review Family:Warren Clark and Cora Yeager (1) and Family:Frank Clark and Cora Strohacker (1) to show what I did. After changing the fact citations, then you can delete the inappropriate place pages (those with street addresses) rather than using the Redirect function, which just clogs up the system and causes confusion on the redirected page. Hope that helps.--BobC 09:04, 23 April 2010 (EDT)

HAGERMAN family [19 July 2010]

If you belong to Genealogy Wise I have posted a file of 6 generations on the HAGEMAN family on the Long Island group in the discussion forum. You do have to register with Genealogy Wise but there is no fee.

There is also a web page devoted to the HAGAMAN (& various spellings), again free but you do have to register to add comments.

I collect all HAGAMAN/etc. data (male lines) on the Dutch family that settled in New York, thanks, Jim.--Jim LaLone 10:47, 19 July 2010 (EDT)

Errors in RITTER information attributed to me [11 April 2011]

Hi Kristina

I recently found your information on WeRelate and noticed that the problem of inaccurate information being attributed to correspondence with me persists. I haven't looked over the information in detail but locations for Martin Ritter (1749-1827) and descendents continue to show Berks County (PA) when they should be Bucks County (or even Northampton County depending on the time frame. I understand that entries will sometimes have errors (certainly I'm not immune to that!) but I find it distressing when citations suggest I made the errors. I'm trying to learn the WeRelate procedures so I can note the errors. Anything else we can do to correct them?

Lovina Powell/Henry Paulin [20 June 2011]

Hi, Kris, Am so delighted to have found you on this site, and all the great info on the Powell and related lines. Thanks for both your work and your sharing. My gg-grandmother was Lovina Powell, married Henry D. Paulin. My grandparents were Ruth James and Errett Oscar Paulin. Just started on this site today, and after adding some info on the Paulin and James branches, realized I deleted some of your info when I placed my updates. I'm so sorry, and now realize how I can add alternate information without deleting and will do so from now on. Regards, Tamara--Gold lotus 99 17:31, 20 June 2011 (EDT)

Featured Page template [14 August 2015]

Hi. I'm standardizing the Featured Page templates across the site. Currently, the template on top of your user page is: {{Template:Featured Article|14 September 2009}}. You can simply change it to: {{Featured Page|14 September 2009}}. It still works with the other one, but it's a redirect.
BTW, is your personal website down? — Parsa 11:46, 14 May 2012 (EDT)

Hello! Mary Mutchler married Howard Cochard. I am no relation to the Mutchler clan, but Howard Cochard was a cousin to me. So I am related to any children he and Mary might have had. I do not know anything about them or their marriage. Please write if you can help fill in the blanks.--Kristy 05:32, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Clark family [14 August 2015]

I was searching for information about my grandfather and happened upon this site. I read about you and see that you were born in Tiffin. I was born in Bryan. There was information posted on Josephine E. Clark. I read through this and printed a copy for myself. It appears that she was my great grandmother and that her son Lester E. Cook Sr., was my maternal grandfather. He divorced my grandmother Naomi. He and Naomi had four other children, three who are still alive. I would like to contribute what I know about the family, plus I would like to learn about family who were not known.

I assume that Lester is no longer living, otherwise he would be 107. I know he married a woman named Agnes and that they lived in Phoenix AZ.--Curious 15:39, 3 March 2013 (EST)

that would be great if you want to join in and contribute  :-)--Kristy 07:55, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

John Clark [15 August 2015]

Hello Kris, I believe we are cousins. John Clark is my 2nd grt grandfather and his son Edward is my grt grandfather. We have been told so many conflicting stories about John and his service in during the Civil War. My grandmother and her brother use to tell us that John C. Clark is listed on the Angola Monument and it's one of our grandfathers. Steuben Co had that he was with the 100th Inf.Indiana, I see you have he was with the 35th out of Kendallville. Do you have any military records of exactly what happened? One very distant OLDER cousin told us (before they died) John was killed in Murfreesboro, TN. Steuben Co. Library has information on Johns' brother, Samuel and linked with his information is Johns. They have that John was killed July 31, 1864 in the Wilderness War in Alabama.

Also, you may not have known that Edward and Emma had a daughter, Doris B, in 1917, she just died in 2014. I absolutely love the pictures, my grandmother always said she wish she had more. Do you have any more that I could view?--JDC 02:31, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello! John Clark was my GGG-Grandfather. My records show that he was killed in action during Civil War at the Battle of Nashville, by a bursting of a shell, and he being hit by grape shot. This battle took place Dec. 15-16, 1864. I have traveled to Tennessee to visit the site of the Battle where he was killed. Unfortunately my research was done so many years ago I barely remember the trip. I am a descendant of John's daughter, Elizabeth Clark (a twin) who married Franklin Ritter. I have most of my photos and all of my database and photos on now. It is a lot easier to work with for me.--Kristy 04:47, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Just found your page on "We Relate". The name in the headline box (Zina) is my 1st cousin 3 times removed; son of my 3rd Great Aunt and Uncle, Emanuel and Sophia (LUST) YEITER. I descend from Emanuel's brother, Jakob and his wife Caroline (MYERS) JEUTTER / YEITER. I have lots of YEITERS in my database of around 250,000 names.

Hello Tom, Thank you for stopping by! I am no relation to the Yeiter clan. Zina is in my database because he married a cousin of mine, Altona Robinson. If you have any photos of Zina, Altona or their children/descendants I'd love to see them.--Kristy 05:09, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Willard Krumm [14 August 2015]


I was looking for some information for my Family Tree Maker Ancestry line and came across your entry for Willard Krumm. He is a distant relative of mine. When I read further down, it mentions my maternal grandmother Frances Roberta Alberts. My mother, Virginia, is quoted in the footnotes. I was wondering where her quote came from? Do you happen to know some of my family members personally or could we be related? =)--TinaMariaa 03:58, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi Tina, I would be no relation to ya, however my Husband is a Krumm. Willard Krumm was my husband's great-uncle. So if you are a Krumm relative, you are related to my hubby.--Kristy 08:05, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
