Should I do a project page for a SURNAME and connect an ancestor's wikitree ID as a link?

Hi Maggie,

What are you planning to do with the project? The surname index, e.g. <http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/stermenzsky> has the basic list of links, including links to G2G and free-space profiles.

Doing a free-space profile would be another option, e.g. the way I've done http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Whitten_Family_History

I see the possibilities are endless here . Now that I looked at your examples , can I do both formats ( Same Surname ??). How do I link them to one another ??

 

Thanks . Magda

Hi Maggie,

Chris's first example already exists for every surname that's on WikiTree. If you go to http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:SearchPerson and use the Search for a Surname part, you'll see that page.

To create a family history page like Chris's second example, just go to http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?action=newspace and create a new page, called something like "Smith Family History".

I hope that helps.
