Wow, Bjorn, those are tragic tales. Thanks for the update.

Thank you Shmuel and Hatte to the links to the wikis and Project about the Curators. Geni has so much information that it is easy to not know or lose track of where some of it is.

You're welcome Private User. I find the project very useful. I agree with you and for me the Wikis are the last place I look...

Re the wiki: I use it as a scratchpad area for things that concern more than one person. I find it far more useful than keeping stuff on my own computers - since I know it's shared, I don't have to worry about who sees it, and since it's in the cloud, I don't have to worry about which computer I kept them on, and since I can link from my personal page, I don't lose track of the notes.
I think it's under-utilized. I would be sad to see it go away.

Good points Harald Alvestrand but it is the case that Geni has an embarrassment of riches -- both in methods to accomplish something and in information / help sources -- and it makes it very complex even for those who are regular users and not technically naive.

Hi I am a new Curator

I am English speaking South African, but can speak Afrikaans as well.

My occupation is Industrial Design Consultant (consumer product development)

My main genealogical research interests are far reaching. I am interested in the early arrivals in the Cape including researching aspects of the Slave trade especially the history those originating from Madagascar. I am interested in the Anglo Boer war, especially the research of the prisoner of war camps overseas particularly in St Helena and Ceylon. I am interested in the early pioneers in Kimberley and Johannesburg. I am interested in researching the Gold rush to Pilgrims Rest and particularly the minting of the Veldpond during the Anglo Boer war.

I am looking forward to collaborating with the Geni Curator family, and from what from all the discussions I have read, I can see they are a great bunch of people, and I am very happy and proud to be part of the group!

Hello everyone and thanks for the welcome I am a new member of the team and curator.
