Welcome to The Genealogy Wiki!
This is a place where you can create articles about your ancestors, and easily link them to other articles about where and when they lived. You can work wholly within this wiki, or you can link your articles to sites on the world wide web. And because this is a wiki format, you can work collaboratively with others to create a network of articles about your ancestors, and about those they lived and worked with---or simply about people you find interesting. As this site grows it is our hope that we will be able to gradually link our ancestors into a network that goes far beyond the simple nuts and bolts of who lived where and when, and a list of begats.
The focus of this site is on capturing the details of the lives of our ancestors, both those historically significant people and the everyday people usually not listed in encyclopaedias, histories, or even "people's histories". Along the way, It is our hope that the site will also provide information about the historical and social context that our ancestors found themselves within. Finally, this site aspires to be truly global, with active contributors and information from multiple cultures and all four Hemispheres. |}
