AboutTutorialHelp

(The largest semantic wiki for genealogy.)
We are currently working on 291,415 articles and 406358 other pages.
Here you can keep your family history research
organized, evergreen, accessible, and collaboration-ready.
Join us in this important and exciting work!

This is a place where you can create articles about your ancestors and can easily link them to other articles about relatives and where and when they lived. You can work wholly within this wiki, or you can link your articles to external sites on the world wide web. And because this is a wiki format, you can work collaboratively with others to create a network of articles about your ancestors and about those they lived and worked with — or simply about people you find interesting. It is our hope that, as this site grows, we will gradually be able to link our ancestors into a network that goes far beyond the simple nuts and bolts of who lived where and when.

The focus of this site is on capturing the details of the lives of our ancestors, both those historically significant people and the everyday people rarely listed in encyclopaedias, histories, or even "people's histories". Along the way, the site will also provide information about the historical and social context in which our ancestors found themselves.

This site aspires to be truly global, with active contributors and information from several cultures and languages, and all four Hemispheres.

We have some of the latest wiki software to make page display easy and minimize duplication of work. Semantic MediaWiki has been used to make data entry as easy as on a commercial program and to make data retrieval and presentation easier still. Check out Help:Articles/start.

Sign in and join us. Plenty of friendly genealogists here to help if you get stuck! And be bold; mistakes can be reversed if necessary.

Grace Enid Baglin (1933-2006) -
Grace Enid Russ (nee Baglin) (1933-2006).jpg
Grace, born in Keynsham Hospital, Keynsham, Bristol at about 7.30pm on Thursday 27th April 1933, home address 14 Sweets Road, Kingswood, Bristol, didn’t like her middle name ‘Enid’ and never used it.

She was influenced during childhood and teenage life by her grandmother, Gertrude Rosa Burgess (1874-1958), aka ‘Grand Pratt’. Grand Pratt lived with the family until her death in 1958 and was cared for by her daughter-in-law, Florence Eveline Jenner (1901-1994) aka ‘Eva’; Grace’s mother. Eva frequently said "I never had Grace until Grand Pratt died" by which time Grace was married anyway. ---read more

Cultural sensitivity: Some cultures are sensitive to the recording of certain types of information. For instance, some tribes of Australian Aborigines forbid the viewing of images of dead people. Australian Aborigines request that pages with pictures of deceased Aboriginal people be clearly marked as such so that the user can choose if they wish to view the page. See guidelines on cultural protocol.

Alternative spellings: Where you are familiar with alternative spellings (eg White/Whyte), please note them on the surname article page and if possible create and/or link to those categories. Other readers may not have known of the alternatives or thought to look there. See Help:Surname for more details about how surname categories work)
