Welcome to WeRelate, your virtual genealogical community. We're glad you have joined us. At WeRelate you can easily create ancestor web pages, connect with cousins and other genealogists, and find new information.

Video Tour

We strongly recommend that you spend a few minutes taking our video tour. It provides a brief overview of how to use the features of WeRelate. A little time spent here may save you time later. There are also in-depth text tutorials available from the Help button.

Create Webpages

The next 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 an 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 would make navigating your tree very slow.

Connect with other genealogists

You should always sign in when you are editing or adding pages. Use the signature button (second button from the right in the menu bar above the edit box) to sign your comments on discussion pages. 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.

Shared research pages

Shared research pages act like specialized message boards. Be careful to use only one name spelling and one location in each field; do not use abbreviations. Including postal codes and multiple spellings, names, or locations in these fields will cause your pages to be improperly indexed. It will make it harder for your cousins to find your pages and work with you. For more information see Shared research pages.

How are you related to them? They were my 3rd great-grandparents through their daughter Fanny and Frank Hounshell.--Taylorvences 20:36, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

William Birchfield and Elizabeth Unknown [4 May 2009]

You have 2 pages for William Birchfield and an Elizabeth Unknown: Family:William Birchfield and Elizabeth Unknown (1) and Family:William Birchfield and Elizabeth Unknown (2). Did William Birchfield have 2 wives named Elizabeth? These pages appear on the duplicates list. I am merging the pages or marking the pages as not duplicates. Thanks. --Volunteer Administrator-Beth 09:19, 4 May 2009 (EDT)

Hello, Happy to see you are working on a family tree. I will try to add onto the William G Blair line going back to 1763. Which Alma line are you from?

Maloney [19 January 2014]

Are you the person who made the post about Millard Fillmore Maloney? His sister Mary (Maloney) Trent was my Great Grandmother. No one in my family has ever had a picture of her. My Grandmother Katherine (Trent) Gross was Mary's daughter.

Mary actually died 1918, so the date listed is not correct. Her husband James Trent remarried years later to Callie Pelfrey.

My Grandmother's name is not spelled correctly on many sites. They have her listed as Catherine, when it is spelled Katherine.

Mary (Maloney) Trent and James Trent had the following children:
