The Genealogy Wiki is based on the concepts developed for the Wikipedia.

Keep in mind that others can edit any article created. We depend on good manners, and mutual respect to resolve different views. If you don't agree with someone's view, as presented in one of these articles, discuss your viewpoint with them.

  • Use the articles "discussion page,
  • contact them through their UserPage,
  • email them!

Work out a compromise that meets both viewpoints. The section "Alternative Viewpoints" is there to assist with the presentation of other viewpoints. If someone has already created an article on a particular person, and you think it should say something different, consider putting your views in "Alternative Viewpoints". If you are starting an article, and know that there are other viewpoints on a particular subject, consider expressing those alternative viewpoints in the "Alternative Viewpoint" section. Nothing improves understanding like trying to make the other guys case. Ultimately, the key admonishion on this is "be polite, be courteous, and be respectful". You can disagree with someone's viewpoint, and still meet those admonishions.

And in the words of our late friend, Jerry Penley
