Another qualified genealogist to improve this wiki. Had we not already met on a Wikia site, I might have greeted you with Template:welcnz. It may be worth a quick look!

I hope you can copy to here, and expand without excessive devotion to NPOV, some of the material from

U.S. and U.K. counties[]

What a flurry of good tinkering there, WJ!

On the unmasking of county pages - - if you edit any more like that, you would be most welcome to go one easy step further and delete the "wikipedia:", because we have full pages for every county (and borough/parish/other equivalent) in the U.S. and most of the U.K. (and a growing number of cities) and we want readers to go to them first, not to Wikipedia. Our pages have links to WP for anyone who wants the full info (which is usually not much more). An example of one of our better-developed county pages is Greene County, Ohio. Discussion about improvements to linkages and categories for county-level material is on pages such as Forum:County subpages - categorising. Not much expressed interest among other contributors so far.

Medieval genealogy[]

Hey, man, your recent response on Newsgroup: soc.genealogy.medieval to the enquiry:

does anyone know of a website for
collaborative research to break through the brick walls in medieval
genealogy?  What I have in mind is wiki-oriented site that is
searchable by the individual's name, along with corresponding web-
pages with all the known information about that individual.

was a little disappointing:

"Such an idea is perfectly feasible at if you want to start a page on any particular person. The more famous people probably should be writen up at wikipedia itself, but the more obscure can still be put on Knol which does not have a notability distinction. That is, you can write on anybody.

Will Johnson "

Send them here. They can start at Project Charlemagne or search for the relatives of their brick walls.

Thanks for the prompt reply on my talk page. I guess I should have a look at Knol. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 03:21, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
