Wikitree Guidance

I'm working on some help pages for users who might be afraid to use categories. This is very much a work in progress.

Essay Pages on Wikitree and in Google Docs

I have found essay writing to be sometimes easier to do and read on google docs when illustrations need to be put in the midst of a description. Therefore some of the links below will take you to my shared google docs. I have put links on those essays back to this page so you will find it easy to navigate back. The links to google doc essays open in a new window or tab.

  1. A Family Story
  2. Unintended Consquences and Family Trees.
  3. A list of my family names and where they came from fround by clicking: FAMILY NAMES
  4. The ship Johan Simon Heller and his father Johann Christoph Heller came to America on is The Winter Ship Galley.
  5. The 1903 book that contains the genealogy of the Duryea family is the Documentary History of the Nederdeutsche Gemeente

My Photo Albums

I have a generic photo page Gail Photos. I use this to hold images that are common to more than one ancestor or images that I want to use on the left side in wiki profiles.

My family photo albums are located at zenfolio where I pay for storage and a website. My personal photos are password protected to protect my grandchildren and their families. If you email me I will give you the password. You can go to grabmemories albums here.

About Me

I am a 60 something grandmother of four who has discovered genealogy as a hobby. My husband John and I enjoy cruising on our vacations. We live in Commerce, Georgia in an old antebellum which is a constant work in progress. I have the most wonderful grandchildren in the world.

I'm always happy to meet distant cousins and will gladly share any information that I have.

Hi Gail! I wish I could take credit but the categories were Kirsty Ward's idea to help us be able to easier find content to socialize and she set up all those categories! I don't know that people will go out of their way to add profiles that aren't quite so famous but if you would draft me a disclaimer ("We encourage you to only add famous/infamous people etc etc...") then I will add it to those categories. Thanks!

What a nice surprise! I opened my profile today to find out that you've awarded me a community star for helping out with the Categories Project. Thanks, Gail, your hard work and leadership is inspirational to many Wikitreers, including me!

Hi, Gail! Thank you for your input. I am still working on understanding categorizations. However, I am requesting refinement in the religion categories. I am sorry to say, whoever put the current groupings together does not understand the meaning of orders in the Catholic Church. Even I do not know it all. But I am willing to learn other religious categorizations. After the discussion on G2G (if there is any) I will retool where necessary. Thanks again.

Hi Gail,

I've added Bio to Bowne-24 and edited out duplication. I've also initiated merge proposals on Bowne-39>34, Bowne 51>31. There needs to be a small bit of verification on spouses. this may help. The married last names of the ladies should also be addressed. Whenever you get the chance :)

Oh, also, I noticed that you removed the accents from the English versions of the El Salvador categories, but they have accents in English too (see Wikipedia:Cuscatlán Department).

I just saw what you've been doing with the Spanish regional categories. I like it!

One thing I might change is the links to the other languages; I feel like they should be in the language they're linking to. That way if a Spanish speaker found themselves at Category:Regions, they'd easily be able to see how to get to the Spanish page. What do you think?

Thank you Gail for all the help you have given me on Categories. You have been a big, big help. I am now getting a better handle on it.

Thanks, Gail
