Better source searching, family matching

April 13, 2009

There have been problems searching sources where searches for sources in a country returned so many county-level sources that you can’t find the country-level source.  For example, searching for US Census sources was nearly impossible. I’ve changed how source results are ranked so that if you set the Namespace to Source, and put the country in the Place field, country-wide sources are ranked higher than county sources.

Also, the list of possible matching families in the GEDCOM uploader is now more likely to show families that truly are matches.

The new Sandbox website is a place where you can try new things. Anything that can be done on the main website can be done on the sandbox except that it’s not permanent, so feel free to play.

New GEDCOM import

April 12, 2009

The new GEDCOM import process is a major step forward for WeRelate. You can now match people in your GEDCOM to people already on WeRelate during the import – making it easier than ever to connect your tree to Pando. You can also see what your wiki pages will look like, correct problems, and match places and sources to wiki places and sources.
