To our dear CURATORS, do you know if there is a GLOSSARY of Geni terms and how to find it?
For instance, I would like to know which family members are encompassed in the term FAMILY GROUP; how far back do you consider family members to be ANCESTORS, and so an.
If we don't have such an instrument, I would like other users to chime in about its importance and to add terms they would like to see under such glossary.
Most of this is covered in the geni FAQ, which you get to from the "Help" hyperlink at the bottom of every page:
I agree that a "quick glossary" may be a nice little project, but before we put that on the curator plate, would you be kind enough to see if the existing geni documentation does it for you?
Also check the blog for "breaking news" ...
You may find the wiki useful, especially this section: http://wiki.geni.com/index.php/Category:Glossary
Keep in mind this is all user generated, so if you find a mistake, please feel free to correct it!
I am right now on the FAQ page, and right off the bat I can see one deficiency, it is not alphabetized.
It will take quite a while to read all that is available and digest it, so I am going to just add that this should remain a topic of discussion, and that other users should help in fine tuning such a possible GLOSSARY, within which links to different topics could facilitate the search.
