Hi Penny,

This is so exciting! You really changed your mind in a hurry. I loved
your term Wiki Judge; you may have coined a new phrase. Please inform
the list about the gedcom. Was it easy? Were there any problems? Has it
finished uploading yet?

Does WeRelate have guidelines for establishing who is living? If I do
not have a death date for a person, how many years from birth is
considered an acceptable choice; 100 years, 95 years or . . .?

Regarding William Eldred; I would think he would only have one page and
everyone would work from that page. Isn't that how it is supposed to work?

You and Sheri have motivated me just to jump in and get started. I am
going to work on uploading one family group from my tree as soon as I
have the time.

Kindest regards,
Beth Gay
List Administrator
