Welcome to the Geni Curator project!

Feel free to add your name in any sections you wish. I based the divisions those used by the UN (I thought that very appropriate). If you don't know where your country fits, please refer to this page.

Also, feel free to remove yourself from the project all together if you so wish.

Thanks! Just to reiterate, the regional breakdowns are those set-forth by the United Nations. We can alter them from there when we get a little more settled.

I have never known Zambia and Zimbabwe regarded as being in Eastern Africa. Southern or Central. Placing them in Eastern Africa is news to me -doesn't sit right with me, despite the UN subregions!

Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe – often included in Southern Africa, and formerly of the Central African Federation

Maybe I have to move with the times!!

Right, it's a bit weird. I think we'll have to modify it for our own use, yet for now, lets stick with it until we get up and running. Then you folks can have a go at it.

Well done Victar!

Well done Victar, this is what I meant, we are here to help people so why not show ourselfs to the public.
I realise that not everyone wants to be publicly listed and I very much respect this, but for people who dont mind this is great.
Maybe a tip for others, I have edited my profile page so that it does not show that much information about myself anymore.
And if the dare to come near me anyway I have a Rottweiler and a baseball-bat ready :)

June,
East Africa is not so strange as Mozambique used to be Portuguese East Africa and it extends right down to the Swziland and South African borders - much further south than Zambia and even Zimbabwe.
Just an observation.

Why would some-one want to be a curator if he/she does not want to be in a list like this? Some curators seem to have very personal reasons to like this job? Does geni-staff have a list of wanted skills to become part of their management? And what is on that list? Do they use experienced headhunters to find the appropriate people for this important and responsible place in the hierarcy of this open source-platform? I myself have very bad experiences with the communication-skills of some of them, so I think there should be a place for average geni-users to give there opinion about the way some make rules just for there own idea of managing people they do not know at all. This is not a university for genealogist-professores, everyone should be able to contribute with their own tree and ways of putting information in about me of there direct ancestors. I like geni for the possibility to discover how others work and for the cooperation chances worldwide. I dont like curatores who claim to be the first and only specialist for some users are very genious too and I discovered some to work with in special teams for special projects. That's also a chance for real professors to do research in very different areas with the use of this global meeting-point

-jMu-, curators are not part of Geni's mgmt team, not even paid employees. The set of preferred skills are listed in http://wiki.geni.com/index.php/Curators .

and is there also a safe place to put your experiences with them?
