Would you like to help WeRelate become a better place for genealogists? Starting today, we’re switching over to a new admin structure – in which everyone is encouraged to participate! We’d like to give a big thank you to our previous administrators, who have served for many years. It’s time for WeRelate to grow. WeRelate continually needs volunteers who can assist in maintaining and improving the website. The majority of these tasks can be performed by anyone. We encourage you to become involved! (learn more…)
WeRelate has a cool new feature! If you’re signed in, click on the List menu and select People to see a searchable list of everyone you’re watching. Many thanks to Jdfoote1 for volunteering on the development!
In case you haven’t visited WeRelate in awhile, we now have a ”Family tree” view that allows you to easily navigate a person’s ancestors and descendants. Just click on the Family tree link on any person or family page. Many thanks to Ryan Knight for sponsoring the development!
WeRelate now has pages for over two million of our ancestors! Join our growing community.
When you search Source pages, commonly-used sources are ranked higher, searches by title now search both the page title and the source title, and searches by place covered are now more accurate. For example, if you search for sources in Virginia, you will no longer get back sources for the entire US, and if check the “Exact” checkbox and search for Virginia, you will no longer get back sources covering only individual cities or counties in Virginia.
I’d like to help promote a proposed Q&A website for genealogy. It’s based upon StackOverflow, a Q&A website for programmers that has become very popular very quickly. The proposal is still in the “definition” phase and needs people to help choose which questions will be on and off-topic. Please join!
