What is Geneapedia?
The idea is to create a Wikipedia of genealogical information - a database where anyone can enter or modify information,
but with a strong focus on sources and reliability. The ultimate goal for Geneapedia is to become the leading collection of
genealogical lineage-linked information - and the natural starting point for doing your own research.
In Geneapedia no one "owns" the information. Anyone can change any data (login is required). Source information can be
added to all details, not only on person level. Information without any source reference are marked as unreliable.
Geneapedia is still in a development and test phase. If you want to participate adding data and testing Geneapedia's features,
please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What does the database contain?
It currently contains mostly data from Norway and Scotland. Much data from the Gjesdal parish in the Norwegian county of Rogaland has been
added. And most of the leading families of Scotland in the middle ages has been added.
