Next step: Review your GEDCOM [12 July 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 Thom Bryant Family.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.

Note: if your gedcom contains many errors or multiple families, we’d ask that you resolve and correct the errors, delete this gedcom and re-submit it without the errors before merging it with families already on WeRelate. If the gedcom is very large, we’d suggest breaking it up into separate lines and importing them one at a time, which makes the review and correction process easier.

Click here to review your GEDCOM

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.

Duplicate families [3 December 2011]

Hi Thomb,

When you have a moment, please take a look at your Duplicates List by going to My Relate>Show Duplicates. It’s a good idea to check this list on a regular basis. There are a few families there that are potential matches. We have an ongoing site-wide project to merge duplicates, but it is always better if somebody familiar with the families can make the merge. Here is our help page on merging. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks! --Jennifer (JBS66) 09:51, 3 December 2011 (EST)

== Thomas Bryant [5 September 2016] == (reposted from User talk:GayelKnott)

Gayel, I saw your changes for Thomas Bryant. What is your documentation for Mabel Melton having a 2nd child by Thomas Bryant? According to John Perry Alderman she only had one child- Thomas Jr. I also have her will some place and there is no mention of this other Bryant child.--Thomb 15:58, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Thomb. You had duplicate parents for Thomas Bryant (35) with virtually no information (including names) for one set of parents, and no sources for the other set. The unnamed child (Person:Unknown Bryant (28)), again, no information other than sex and no sources or explanatory text. Since the two sets of parents appeared to be identical, I merged them. People often, for one reason or another, do end up accidentally adding the same parents to a child in two slightly different formats, creating duplicates, which, as you know, are not supposed to happen on WeRelate. If you believe that the two sets of parents are really different, you can undo them and remove Thomas Bryant (35) from the incorrect set, then add sources (and explanations in the text section if needed.) Alternately, if you don't know who the parents of Thomas Bryant (35) are, you should be adding speculative parents (you can use the speculative templates if you want ), rather than creating duplicate parents. Either way, adding sufficient information, including sources, to make it clear what your information really means would be helpful.--GayelKnott 14:19, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Gayel, I have circumstantial documentation via the census and deeds that George Washington Bryant and Andrew Jackson Bryant were brothers and that they were living on Thomas Bryant's farm in 1830. I know that they are not Thomas' sons so I am speculating that they were his cousins from Bedford. This is what I was trying to create.

Thanks, Thomb. I'm not sure how George Washington Bryant and Andrew Jackson Bryant related to the parents of Thomas Bryant (35) and the creation of duplicate parents for him, although I'm sure it makes sense to you. Have you created pages for them? If so, you can add a comment to the page of the Thomas Bryant who had a farm in 1830 to say that it appears they were living on his farm, and use hyperlinks (like I've done for Thomas Bryant (35) above, or see Formatting Links) in the text to take the reader to their pages. Similarly, if you have created pages for them, you can add a note in the text section of each of their pages explaining that you believe they were living on Thomas Bryant's farm and add hyper links for Thomas Bryant. That way the information is on-line, you can add sources and explanations, and your meaning and intent are (hopefully) clear to others. Gayel --GayelKnott 15:08, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
