Died on a voyage to Ireland

Hi, I am an admin for WeRelate. We can't have this sort of Place. There is no country. The search engine uses our place pages in the search and it won't know what to do with this. I am sorry but I needn't to delete the place page. I added the information to your person and family pages.  :)--sq 21:33, 24 April 2009 (EDT)

Regarding Cruickshank changes [20 June 2009]

Hi Joana, no I am not related. I am a volunteer merging duplicate pages for the duplicate review project. You are welcome; it would be a nice addition to the pages if you uploaded their pictures. --Beth 16:29, 20 June 2009 (EDT)

Nimrod Branham/Bramham [24 September 2011]

Hello, I noticed the change you made to Nimrod Branham, revising his surname to "BraMham". This family, from England was normally spelled "Branham", but the alternate spelling (Bramham) was also added as an alternate spelling, so your change was un-necessary and the capitalization of the "M" in the middle of the surname was obviously incorrect. We would appreciate it if you would not change names of persons already on WeRelate unless it is absolutely necessary and the records back up such a change.

Thanks and best regards,

In reference to the message you placed on my talk page, here is the will of Richard Branham, one of the early Branham's in Virginia (notice the spelling, which appears to be the typical spelling of this family in England). As Scott indicated on my talk page, many names had varied spellings, so getting into "surname spelling wars" is not what a wiki site like WeRelate is about. Your preferred spelling "Bramham" was added as a "alternate spelling" on the web page in question. Many surnames had multiple spellings in records, as well as changing somewhat from generation to generation, so that is what the "alt surname" field is for. You can add records to the Person pages, showing that there are multiple spellings, if you'd like, which would also help other researchers.

Will 4 April 1728, Richard Branham, Senr., of the County of Richmond and Parish of North Farnham” (county formed from Rappahannock Co., in 1692)
Left his “loving wife Ann” the plantation
Sons Richard and John listed as heirs, left Richard a gun and 10 shillings and John 10 shillings to buy a ring
Executrix: wife Ann Branham.
Will proved 1 May 1728 [Source: Richmond Co., VA Will Book 5, 1725-1753, pp 95-96, 345].

His son Richard, used the "Bramham" spelling (and he has "Bramham" as his alt surname):

Richard Bramham (Jr.) of Lunenburg Parish, Will Written 12 Dec. 1739. Recorded 3 March 1739/40.
Names wife Alice, son John, son Benjamin, and daughter Eleanor.
Alice is executrix.
Wit: Robert Davis, Susanna Dozier, John Dozier. (Will is mutilated.)
[Source: Richmond County, VA Will book 5, p 345].

Hope this helps.

Changes [13 April 2014]

I am really impressed with Markus changes!!!! I learned a lot from your changing names from all upper case to lower case. GIve me a break. Are you related to any of these people???--Joana1493 14:15, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello ! Excuse my very bad english !
1) I personally prefered also put surnames in capital (for better readability and immediate distinction between surname and first name), but ... I just want to put the WeRelate records/data in accordance with the current "rules" that I have not helped to define. I have ONE wish ! --> My goal is to make the records more consistent to motivate potential french speaking contributors ... when WeRelate will become multilingual (what I expect since May 2008 ... In 2008, I chose stupidly Rodovid who was best but does not progress in programmatic improvement, friendliness and courtesy.)
2) I am not related to "your" people.
