Place pages [20 March 2011]

Hello, I am one of the volunteer admins here on WeRelate. I noticed that you created a place page for Trinity College. WeRelate's policy is to allow place pages for towns, counties, states, etc and cemeteries (not churches, hospitals or other physical locations). I edited your pages and moved the references to this place to the description field. Let me know if you have any questions, --Jennifer (JBS66) 08:40, 19 March 2011 (EDT)

Jennifer: thanks for this advice, and for amending the Person pages accordingly. I've had a look at the policy page as well. One thing that is not clear is whether WP should have place names for parishes - for example St Olave. That place was, I assume, automatically added by ingesting the "Family History Library Catalog". So, can a parish (ie geographical administrative area within a county) be included? Regards, Honnyng 09:03, 20 March 2011 (EDT)
To be honest, I don't know the answer to your question. You are correct that some of WR's places were obtained from the FHLC. I suggest that you may want to leave a message on the Support page. There will likely be users there more familiar with this subject who can offer advice. --Jennifer (JBS66) 15:20, 20 March 2011 (EDT)

Text on category page [23 March 2011]

Hello, I wanted to let you know that I moved the text you added to the Honnyng Category to this surname page instead: Surname:Honnyng. We generally keep the category pages text-free as they are meant to be navigational aids, but the Surname pages are a perfect place for this! To Watch the Surname page, just click Watch from the left menu. --Jennifer (JBS66) 06:23, 22 March 2011 (EDT)

Jennifer: many thanks for this, and for your tact with this newbie to WR ! The Surname page is perfect for this, and I'll gradually add a few more articles on the other surnames I'm working on. The fact that the Category page was editable confused me - but all is clear now. Regards, Honnyng 16:20, 23 March 2011 (EDT)

Thanks for changing the subject.... [16 July 2012]

Really - thanks. I must keep a civil tongue. I've never claimed to be a genealogist but I know when I'm making things better and not worse. I'll be glad to peek at the duplicates. --jrm03063 20:19, 15 July 2012 (EDT)
