How to Contribute

  1. First step is to follow or collaborate on this, the master project.
  2. Please collaborate on the sub-project of interest.
  3. After getting yourself added as a collaborator for that sub-project, select the profile of the prominent person you wish to add.
  4. Navigate to the profile of the prominent person. Under the "More Actions" link, choose "Add to Project" and select sub-project in which this person should be included .
  5. Include in the "About Me" section of each person a brief biographical sketch of their lives, summarizing their significant contributions and accomplishments. No need to elaborate on parents, sibling and children as this will be redundant with the .
  6. Please list your sources in the bottom of the biographical sketch, or if possible, attach the documents to the profile.
  7. Include a photograph of your ancestor if one exists. Acknowledgements about ownership and/or link source of images used in this project should be added in the description field of each individual photo.
  8. Mark the profile as "public" and not "private".
  9. If you wish to add a surname that is not yet here, create a new sub-project, following this project name format: "<Surname> Family of the Philippines". The same steps above apply.

Simple Courtesies

  1. If you feel a private profile will contribute immensely to the development of a tree, please communicate with the profile owner first before triggering any merge. Some families prefer to keep their tree free from external merges, and we should be sensitive to those preferences.
  2. There is no need to add duplicate profiles. Simply send a note to the manager and ask (very kindly) to co-manage the profile. It will save us the task of merging duplicate trees later.
  3. To avoid "spam" updates, do not unilaterally add collaborators to this or any project, unless the collaborator-to-be makes an explicit request. If you wish to Invite someone, send an message-invite with the link, then let the collaborator-to-be decide for himself if he wishes to join the project.

Information featured in this study is available on public on-line platforms and widely circulated publications. Citations and references is a standard and must be added at all times, especially on historical profiles. There is no intention to infringe on personal privacy or proprietary research. Claimed profiles who do not wish to be featured in the studies should simply mark themselves or the individuals they manage as "private". Their names will consequently be taken out of this study.
