Hi James. Since that page is in the main namespace (basically it's like a help page), it can only be edited by Supervisors.

If there's something in particular you want changed, you could post it, or email me or another Supervisor, and we could change it for you.

Then I will plan to take the existing text, and provide a completely revised version.    As it is, that page has significant accuracy problems.
That page really was out of date and badly written.

We started these pages in 2008 but they never took off. I don't see why we need them at all, unless someone wants to keep them up to date and informative.

For now I just changed it to a link to WeRelate.org.
Thanks!

That's certainly more helpful.   A link to the wikipedia page for werelate might also be approrpriate.

I've meant to provide a couple of compare/contrast points - because I really do see both sites as having their own roles.   For example, I'm going to try to use wikitree for living members of my family and a handful of generations going back.
