JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Jewish Genealogy Wiki #general

As you may, or may not know, a 'wiki' is an online site in which users
can collectively add or edit information, the most well-known example
being "Wikipedia".

I have started a basic Jewish genealogy wiki in which registered users
can add their own links and information, thereby hopefully creating a
useful resource for those of us researching our family trees. It is
set out according to geographic location, and users can add their own
countries and links.

To add and edit information may seem a bit confusing at first, but
does become easier once you get the hang of it. At the moment there
are only a few countries with one or two links in each, but I'm hoping
that others will register and add their own information.

This is in no way meant to compromise the wonderful, and extensive,
work done by JewishGen, but rather to add to it! The address is:
www.jgene.org/wiki

It is only in the beginning stages and a bit of an experiment, but I'm
hoping it will be a successful one! If you have any comments,
suggestions or need help, please mail me off-list.

Many thanks,
