ALL USERS: Be the first to contribute journals regarding your surnames...
Presently there aren't a lot of journals submitted for surnames that users seem to be researching.
If any of you have a fantastic website that you wish to share with us regarding your particular surname, let us know and we shall add the link to the Surname Wiki Page.
Tip: Search here at FamilyTreeCircles in the right-hand corner for phrases such as FREE, FREEBIES, NEW, NEWBIES, BEGINNING, BEGINNERS to see what others have written to aid you in your research.
Tip: Please make sure your journal has a Title otherwise we won't be able to read it by clicking on the subject heading.
Tip: Please don't write a journal with the only information being the subject heading. Tell us about your great grandparents, you may have more chance finding info on that generation to begin your family tree.
Tip: Please don't subscribe to yourself. The subscription method is here so that when you click on Your Profile you can see what other researchers are interested in your surnames by reading your journals.
Tip: Please don't have cheeky or offensive usernames. They will be deleted.
Tip: Please don't attach offensive photographs to your profile. Will most definitely be deleted.
Tip: The more journals you submit the more your increase your chances of 'contacts'.
Tip: If your ancestor married someone with an unusual surname, write about them or try searching for them instead. You may find your ancestor without even looking too hard.
Tip: Make sure you include in your Title/Subject Heading of your journals "Looking for ....(SURNAME) ... of ... (city, country)".
Tip: Remember this website is viewed by people from all over the world so try and be specific with regards to where your ancestor came from. For example there are many place names in the world that are the same in other places, such as Ipswich. There's an Ipswich in Suffolk, England; there's an Ipswich in the State of Queensland, Australia; there's even an Ipswich in Massachusetts, United States just to mention a few.
Tip: Remember to keep the privacy of the living whilst doing your genealogy on the world wide web.
Tip: Please do not write journals with the whole article written in uppercase. This is almost like screaming on the internet and is not considered polite. Save uppercase for important details like surnames.
Tip: Try finding your great grandfather (or great grandmother).
More help is required with regards to the creation of the surname wiki pages. If you have enough eligible points to contribute in becoming an editor, and want to submit surname wiki pages, just edit some of the previous surname wikis and cut and paste into a new one.
Good luck as always,
