I saw a discussion by you concerning the limitations of Chalkley's Chronicles, as it appear on the UVA LIbrary site
I would like to include this discussion as a caveat on a bibliographic card placed on the Genealogy Wiki. A discussion of what the Genealogy Wiki is about appears at
A temporary verbatim version of your discussion is provided at
Your discussion very clearly indicates that the information can be re- presented in full as long as "proper credit is given and no changes are made". However, I've seen something very similar to this in the past, and had a discussion with the author at that time. They were unwilling for the material to be presented in the Wiki format, and so I did not include it. I do not recall at the moment the name of the author I was originally talking to. It may conceivably have been you.
Hence, I would like to ask you for explicit approval to place this material on the genealogy Wiki.
If you approve of this usage, I will remove the "under construction" banner If you do not approve of the usage, I will remove the information, and limit the caveat to a link to the original
Thanks I appreciate your consideration of this
