ALL USERS: Check out the FREE genealogy research at Wikipedia

Dear FamilyTreeCircle Members, Hi there. Just a few free links that some of you may not be aware of:-

All about Genealogy from Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Also, it appears that Wikipedia have a new aspect to their website in which anyone can contribute towards by writing about their ancestors. The link is below. Before you can create a page about your ancestor, it is advised that you goto the SEARCH box, left-hand margin, and type in the surname you are researching just in case someone has already written about your ancestor and/or that particular person.

G-Wiki - The Genealogy of the World

Make sure you read all their information very carefully. But it looks like you can even start with what sketchy information you have, and then add more as you know more.

Cheerio,
Alison

ALL USERS: Proper Etiquette for Posting Genealogy Messages on the Internet

Dear FamilyTreeCircle Members,

A gentle reminder to those who need it ... It is considered bad etiquette to post full dates of birth/marriage/addresses on the living with or without their permission. It also raises the possibility of identity fraud.

And for goodness sakes please don't tell everybody where you live!

Likewise you will avoid spamming if you don't display your email address here, that's what the 'personal messaging system' is for.

Please read the following data at this site for more information:-

If Miss Manners did Genealogy

Kind regards,
Alison
(EDITOR)



Update: It would be appreciated if journals were written in proper sentence case of upper and lower styles instead of fully blocked upper case as this denotes 'screaming'. Save the caps lock for surnames so that they stand out. Thank you.

Also, can we please have subject headings for new journals pertinent and to the point. Example, 'Looking for SMITH and CARTER from Pennsylvannia' instead of trying to have one's life story in the topic heading and nothing in the journal body.
