Place:Porto Santo, Funchal, Madeira, Portugal [22 April 2008]

Wow! Great article. I nominated it for the featured page. We have a lot of nominations so I don't know when Ronni will display it. You did a wonderful job. Do you have any photos of the area or people? Thanks for your participation. If you have any comments or questions please don't hesitate to leave me a message.--sq 10:28, 12 April 2008 (EDT)

Hi Mike, I have been out of town. so I couldn't get back to you sooner. Thanks so much for adding the photos. I really appreciate your willingness to participate.--sq 14:21, 22 April 2008 (EDT)

Hi, I'm moving the content of your S.S. Governor, S.S. Kumeric, and S.S. Sachum place pages to articles. I'm also updating the links to them in your Person pages. I think that ships are more appropriately articles: they don't have a (fixed) latitude/longitude and aren't located in a civil place hierarchy. Let me know if you feel strongly the other way.--Dallan 11:05, 9 August 2008 (EDT)

Madeira Place names [12 August 2008]

Hi Mike, I am happy to see someone else working on Madeira. You have added some rich content to some place pages. I have been working trying to straighten out the hierarchy of places in Madeira and the Azores. The database was riddled with mistakes, but I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel. My wife, Donna Gomes had ancestors come from Madeira and São Miguel to Hawaii about 1883 and then to California in the twenties. I have been trying to interest members of the Madeira mailing list in WeRelate for some time, but without success. Patricia Corbera da Silva Sé from Tracy is very active there and shares some of my wife's ancestry from Calheta.--Scot 13:26, 12 August 2008 (EDT)
