About Hedwige de Namur

  • 2. Gerard (1057-1108), count of Vaudémont
  • 3. Beatrice, married Stephen I, Count of Burgundy, Mâcon, and Vienne
  • 4. Gisela, abbess of Remiremont

Father Albert I of Namur, b. 975, Lorraine, France

Family Gerhard IV of Lorraine, b. 1010, Alsace, France

Ben M. Angel notes: On this person and on several others, limiting the birth and death location to just the modern equivalents serves to remove information about this person. In many cases, where modern information is placed in without any historical reference, it turns out to be dead wrong (i.e., the birth of someone of European ancestry in a New England town before the town is founded, sometimes before Europeans even landed in that part of the New World).

Although simply changing back "minimized names" that have been placed with such insufficient information (for cosmetic purposes at the expense of research value) has served to help with double-checking the accuracy of the names being placed, restoring every other day is frankly starting to get old and not really serving that purpose anymore. As a result, I'll start to keep a list of these extended place names on my home computer with the intent of quickly restoring the information once I've noted that the profile has been changed.

To those who are changing place names to modern equivalents only, I ask you to stop. Your efforts are hindering research. As a curator, I'm not a person that believes in locking profiles, as this effort is a collaboration. But you are erasing researched information in your effort to simplify displays. Please feel free to maintain a minimal display on your own private trees offline. Here, the extended place names are needed.

The following dates and places are saved for quick reference and restoration:

Birth: circa 1025 - Nomurcum (Present Namur), Lomacensis (within the present Walloon Region), Herzogtum Niederlothringen (within present Belgium), Heiliges Römisches Reich
