Welcome to Ernie & Angela's Family Tree

This is our first site and very much a work in progress whilst we learn how to format wikidot pages.

Angela's family on her maternal line are very much local to North Yorkshire (the old North Riding of Yorkshire). In fact we have yet to find any of Hazel's ancestors born outside the North Yorkshire Moors or Rydale district. Whilst her paternal line contains Iron and Steelworkers who relocated from Wales and from the southern counties where we have even found an ancestral commedian and a convict who was shipped to Australia as well as successful local farmers.
Ernies direct maternal line is again restricted to North Yorkshire but his Grandfather although born in Wales was very much of Cornish descent. Ernie's father Fred was born in Exford, Somerset you will not be surprised that this line is localised in and aroung North Devon and Somerset. That makes Ernie 3/4 a Westcountry man, Yorkshire born & bred.

Then there are some things you need to know:

  • You can configure all security and other settings online, using the Site Manager. When you invite other people to help build this site they don't have access to the Site Manager unless you make them administrators like yourself. Check out the Permissions section.
  • Your Wikidot site has two menus, one at the side called 'nav:side', and one at the top called 'nav:top'. These are Wikidot pages, and you can edit them like any page.
  • To edit a page, go to the page and click the Edit button. You can change everything in the main area of your page. The Wikidot language is easy to learn but powerful.
  • You can attach images and other files to any page, then display them and link to them in the page.
  • Every Wikidot page has a history of edits, and you can undo anything. So feel secure, and experiment.

If you've already created other sites

Then we don't need to tell you how addictive Wikidot is. But maybe it's worth reminding you of some of the advanced Wikidot features:

  • You can run your Wikidot site on its own web domain name.
  • You can use Google Analytics to measure traffic going to your site.
  • Giving away free wikis is not enough for us — we are also offering you a way to earn money from your wiki using our AdSense implementation.

We hope you enjoy using Wikidot as much as we do. If you want to discuss Wikidot, there's an active community of Wikidot enthusiasts where you can share tips and ideas.
