Hello and welcome to the WeRelate. Thanks so much for participating and contributing what you know to our virtual genealogical community. Together we can build a community website where we can learn from each other, work together and find what we need to make our research easier, more rewarding and fun. We need your input to make the website the best that it can be. What would be really helpful for you? What seems difficult? We will be automating GEDCOM uploads in the next few months. They will automatically generate person Person:Ella Grey (1) and family Family:Daniel Phillips & Ella Grey (1) wiki pages. Anything you'd like to see?

I don't know if you care, but FYI--you will get automatic links to place pages if you:

  • Type out the full place name in mixed case, i.e. Halifax County, North Carolina.
  • Make a separate entry for each place, i.e.
Blaisdell|New Hampshire

This will turn your links blue and link them to existing pages for those localities. This increases your exposure and chance of finding cousins interested in collaboration. WeRelate has the largest historical place index in the world. Chances are your places are in the index. If your links are still red, click on the search tap, select places and enter your place's name and select alternate place names. The page may have a slightly different title or be spelled differently. Thought you'd like to know.

If you have any questions or comments please email me. Again thank you for participation

Changes in Dam/Damm/Dame in Bloody Point/Newington, NH [6 January 2008]

I don't think I've found anything remarkable, I'm working through a couple of sources that I found on google books that relate to this family. I was interested in it because it touches on a line that I've been working (Tuttle) and the family is associated with the Dame Garrison preserved in Dover (NH). I also came across somebody that is indicated as a "Ranger" in the Saint Francis Raid. Beyond that, a lot of the changes are pretty benign - getting places named to werelate standard so that the places don't show up as red dead-links.--Jrm03063 19:02, 5 January 2008 (EST)

Family:William Southworth and Rebecca Pabodie (5)

I've been doing a lot of merging, and I came across Family:William Southworth and Rebecca Pabodie (5). In comparing it with Family:William Southworth and Rebecca Pabodie (1), I was struck that maybe this is a mistake?--Jrm03063 09:48, 30 March 2008 (EDT)

Family:William Southworth and Rebecca Pabodie (5)

I suspect this family is not correct. Could you please give it a look? Thanks!--Jrm03063 14:05, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Merging your tree with others [27 June 2009]

Hi Siusaidh,

I'm one of the administrators here at WeRelate. We're in the midst of an effort to merge all of the duplicate pages at WeRelate so there is just one page for each person, so that multiple contributors can work together on the same page. We noticed that the GEDCOM you uploaded has pages for the same people found in other GEDCOM's. Would you please visit Special:ShowDuplicates/Siusaidh and help us combine these pages? Thank-you.--Dallan 17:09, 27 June 2009 (EDT)

Family that needs to be corrected [13 February 2010]

Hi, I am one of the volunteer administrator's on WeRelate. I noticed the family listed below that has children that apparently do not belong:

Landon Carter and Elizabeth Maclin

It appears that these Gillespie children, uploaded in your gedcom may belong to another family. Would you please check this out and correct this? Also, please be sure to try to catch these types of errors in the gedcom review process before you load your future gedcoms.

Thanks and best regards,
