The Administrator of this family tree database asks you to pay the
greatest attention to accuracy and completion, so...
1. Most important:
This is a single, unduplicated, shared resource that must remain secure.
Please do not share your access - username and password - with anyone
else. Even if there is another family member who wants to add information, please have
them make a request and they should have their own access.
2. Please only add information to the formal database fields
which you are SURE is correct. Information that MAY (or may not) be correct should be
added in the notes, and labeled or noted as unconfirmed or unreliable this is so
that the information may be investigated further instead of being viewed by others as
3. ALL persons directly associated with any branch of this
family are welcome to be listed. Contrary to past protocol, this Admin does not erect a
wall between a family members spouse and the rest of his/her family.
4. Where a date is approximate, please do not just make one
up. If you are not absolutely sure, an entry About 1865 is preferable to
1865, and an entry About May 1865 is preferable to May
1865 this is so that the date may be investigated further as uncertain (but
with clues provided) instead of being viewed by others as correct.
5. Please supply your specific sources of information or
notes wherever possible, such as Smith Family Bible, IGI database,
IGI Microfilms (Microfiche), (Location) Archives - Records of
Births, Will of Jesse Smith, 1843, Info verbally direct from Jesse
6. Please supply city/town and parish locations as well as
specific record reference numbers wherever possible for all events especially
births, christenings, marriages, deaths and burials. More detail is better, in case
someone else wants to verify the source and seek further associated information. Specific
information provided removes the need to "re-invent the wheel" and speeds up
someone else's research.
7. Part of this database lists spouse surname/s for females
in the Christian name (first name) field separately in [square brackets]. You may follow
this convention if you wish, but please ensure you do not insert these [married surnames]
in the individuals surname field.
8. Please feel free to add images of people and places to the
database... on occasion I will retrieve the larger images and "massage" them to
optimum size, filesize, colour and contrast. When you do upload images, please remember to
identify them - the old Who, What, Where
and When. Otherwise future generations will be looking at photos of
unknown people with no concept of who they are, where they are, or how they are related -
and that is contrary to the objective of this resource.
