"(The largest semantic wiki for genealogy.) We are currently working on 278,754 articles and 401004 other pages. Here you can keep your family history research organized, evergreen, accessible, and collaboration-ready.
This is a place where you can create articles about your ancestors and can easily link them to other articles about relatives and where and when they lived. You can work wholly within this wiki, or you can link your articles to external sites on the world wide web. And because this is a wiki format, you can work collaboratively with others to create a network of articles about your ancestors and about those they lived and worked with — or simply about people you find interesting. It is our hope that, as this site grows, we will gradually be able to link our ancestors into a network that goes far beyond the simple nuts and bolts of who lived where and when.
The focus of this site is on capturing the details of the lives of our ancestors, both those historically significant people and the everyday people rarely listed in encyclopaedias, histories, or even "people?s histories". Along the way, the site will also provide information about the historical and social context in which our ancestors found themselves.
This site aspires to be truly global, with active contributors and information from several cultures and languages, and all four Hemispheres.
We have some of the latest wiki software to make page display easy and minimize duplication of work. Semantic MediaWiki has been used to make data entry as easy as on a commercial program and to make data retrieval and presentation easier still. Check out Help:Articles/start.
