Welcome to the WeRelate virtual genealogical community. Here we can learn from each other, work together and find what we need to make our research easier, more rewarding and fun.
You can create a free profile, Shared research pages and Personal research pages. Shared research pages are the next generation in message boards: they can be organized and edited. When you create a Shared research page title on your home page, the link will appear in red. Click on the red link, enter a message and save. (Creating a title for the page is not enough, your cousins can only search for pages with content.) Personal research pages are password protected wiki pages: visible to the community but editable only by you.
Person and Family pages are up and running. Take 10 minutes to see video tutorial/tour for people pages. You can view sample person and family pages (all you do is ), annotated pictures, and with color coded migration maps. Check out a sneak preview of our new Family Tree Explorer, With this tool you can easily navigate and add pages to your famliy tree, view descendancy trees and ancestral trees for each person and view a sortable index of your tree.
If you are new to Wiki's, you may wish to check our many help and tutorial pages. Or, you can select edit on any page to see how the formatting commands are used. (You could click edit at the top of this page, for example.) You may also be interested in Recent Changes. Here you will see a list of all recent edits. Please help by deleting any spam or inappropriate material.
We are adding new features and material, frequently. Your comments would be greatly appreciated at the Watercooler. If you have any questions, please email me. Again thank you for participation. Enjoy! --sq

Luxon genealogy of Guernsey [15 October 2010]
I noticed that you are researching the LUXON family of Guernsey.
I believe that the wife of George Hellier LUXON, Sarah Elizabeth JONES, might be a distant cousin of mine. Her parents were Robert Ford JONES and Sarah Ware HARVIE.
I have also managed to track William Francis LUXON, son of George and Sarah, to Queensland, Australia, where he died in 1933. He had at least one child there, Eileen Marie LUXON who married Edward John POBAR. Some more information on the POBAR family can be found here - http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=385419.msg3458028;topicseen

Thanks Craig - always nice to meet another Luxon researcher. I found your tree on Ancestry (mine is Ancestry Tree Webster). I should edit my tree here as there are lots of changes.
