Next step: Review your GEDCOM [6 April 2010]

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 BayerTREE0611.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.

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.

Image Licensing [21 April 2010]

Hello, I am a volunteer admin and it's my job to help people learn the system. You asked for help licensing your images. I can't license your images but I can give your guidance. There are numerous licensing options, but most images fall into one of these categories:

  • Original published in US before 1923
  • Low resolution copy of an historical photograph. (When you reduce the image before upload, the resolution is reduced.)
  • Snippet of historical document
  • Work of US government--Public domain
  • If you took the picture, select the CC-BY-SA
  • If you know the photographer, get written permission.

Hope this helps. Please be aware that images left in the "Help needed" category for longer than two weeks will be deleted. If you have any more question please leave me a message. :) --sq 21:00, 21 April 2010 (EDT)

Sarah Ruth Stayton [27 August 2011]

There are (at least) two errors with this information: 1) There is no Baron County, KY -- it's Barren County. 2) Dallas, Texas is not in Collin County, it's in Dallas County. Ruth Stayton Baxter probably died at or near Cedar Hill, which is in Dallas County. She is buried in the Shiloh Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery at Ovilla, which is just southeast of Cedar Hill, but in Ellis County. She was living with either her son (James Alvin Baxter) or her daughter and son-in-law, Frances Jane and Pink Killebrew, both of which families lived in the Cedar Hill-Ovilla area, when she died. Sarah Ruth Stayton Baxter is my ggg-grandmother. Sarah's sister-in-law, Mary Elizabeth Killebrew Rust, and Mary Elizabeth's husband, Vincent Rust, also are buried in the Shiloh cemetery at Ovilla.

William Thomas Baxter [27 August 2011]

Wm Thomas Baxter was born in Jackson County, Missouri, as was his sister, Frances Jane and two other siblings. Their younger brother, John Alvin, was born at Neosho, in Newton County, Missouri. Their father, John J. Baxter was murdered in November, 1860 in McGhee (not McGee, as some would have it), now Cherokee, County, Kansas. The city of Baxter Springs is named for John J. Baxter; he is my ggg-grandfather.
