ENTERING NAMES

1. Type a name (usually the complete name commonly used by that person) in the box on the main page and press "add a new person here"

2. On the "General" page, please fill the form with as much information as you have. You or other family members can add more later.

3. If you have a photo of that person on your computer, you can follow the instructions to upload it here. Or please scan a nice photo onto your computer and add it- that all can remember forever. Size does not matter as the system will automatically re-size and fit it on the page. It will appear nicely on the front page of that persons page.

4. "Relatives" page-Immediate relatives names and their relationships can be picked up from the drop-down list. Add as many as there are. You will also have "click to create" pages for these relatives later when the current page is complete.

5. "Photos and Documents" page: You can also add other family photos or any other interesting document such as appointments letters etc. that you wish to share from your computer or scan them for sharing.

6. "Narrative" page - This is where you start a history of that person. It can be brief or extended-it can always be added by you or by other family and friends later.

7. Don't forget to save the page!!

8. If you do not wish to allow the public to add information on this page, you can click the "star" at the top and then choose protection to create the level of protection. Suggestion: Protect pages of living persons, leave open for those who have passed on, so that other people can share their memory of that person. The pages will be monitored.

8. Now go to each of the relatives you have added and "click to create file" and then complete their details.

9. Make sure to "connect" these relatives between each other.

10. You can view the family tree for any person to check if the connections have been made.

IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE IN A NAME

1. Wiki rules do not allow a deletion. But you can "move" your page to another with the correct name.

2. On the top panel, near the star, you will see a button for arrow down.

3. Here you will find the button for "move"

4. This will take you to a page where you can provide the new name and the whole page will be "moved" to this new name.
