Contact [28 August 2009]
I notice that there has been some activity on WeRelate regarding the Egerton-Warburton family, and in discussions with Beth(administrator on WeRelate) it seems that you may have been making some contributions. My name is Richard Allberry, and am related to the Egerton-Warburtons through My mother's sister, Celia Egerton-Warburton (nee Robinson), who was married to John E-W. I live in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Whereabouts in the world are you? Do you have any further info about the E-W's, Robinsons, or Allberrys--Allberry 19:28, 26 August 2009 (EDT)
Hi Sam, Thanks for your response, and I agree with you about the plethora of genealogy websites today - they all seem to have their good points - and bad.
I, too, am related to the Egerton-Warburtons, but am not actively following their history. Rather I prefer to follow my own, as do you, no doubt.
I believe it would be possible to link our two trees through WeRelate, if we tell them about it, I suppose. Do you want to pursue this? You could have a look at my tree on WeRelate if you like, as I did at yours. Let me know how you feel. I can also give you some details of the family of Verna and Philip Egerton Warburton, if you want.
BTW, I lived for a long time in my formative years in WA, and still have a fondness for the place.
Regards, Ric.--Allberry 22:38, 27 August 2009 (EDT)
Person/Family page titles [25 February 2012]
Hello Samwilson, I noticed that you have pages where the wife's name matches her husband's such as Family:John Ley and Azelia Ley (1). I just wanted to make you aware that WeRelate's titling convention is to title pages with the wife's maiden name, not her married name. If the maiden name is not known, you can use the word Unknown instead.
You can rename these pages by clicking on the Rename link on the left. Note that both the Person and Family pages would need to be renamed. Let me know if you have any questions, thank you, --Jennifer (JBS66) 09:08, 25 February 2012 (EST)
George Hartup and Phillis Baker [27 February 2012]
Hi SamWilson I'm descended from GH & PB, I have images of their marriage register, the passenger list of the Winefred and newspaper reports of poor George's death, if you are interested.
No Probs, Sam, will. FYI Alice was my GGrandmother.--macbeth 20:48, 26 February 2012 (EST)
/* Templates for transcribing standardized source documents? */ [27 February 2012]
I replied to you on this at some length on the watercooler. Some of what I said might actually be useful - you'll have to decide!
BTW, while not without ills, I think this IS the best of the genealogical wikis out there. If for no other reasons than you can upload by GEDCOM and export your work if you get ticked off and really feel like you have to leave! It also uses EXACTLY the same licensing rules as WP, ensuring some reasonable compatibility in terms of sharing pages, and it's associated with a real non-profit (a public library) so there probably isn't a way it could be seized and turned into someone's personal empire.
Anyway, I like your idea - hope I've added some useful thoughts.

MyPlace [29 February 2012]
There really isn't a notion of a MyPlace. We have something almost as good however. You can create a light-weight place by using a google map template in the description field of a fact. When that's present, the lat/long of the google map takes precedence over the lat/long of the political place name. For examples, check out my Grandfather. It's a particularly handy item for getting a refined location in a large cemetery. --jrm03063 09:24, 28 February 2012 (EST)
