    3. Nathan, Greetings from the world's worst website co-ordinator! I hope you are well. I did the updates. I think I got everything correctly done. Please take a look if you have a chance and let me know what you think. Any feedback is appreciated. Is there anyway I can get a map of Wales that shows a highlighted Monmouthshire like the one on Glamorgan? I attached that here so you can see what I mean. It's hard to believe that I was the original co-ordinator back in 1996, took a break, and then came back and have been doing this since 2000. Time sure does fly! Also, one other thing...the link to Montgomeryshire http://www.walesgenweb.com/montgomeryshire/ goes to Caernarvonshire.

    2. Nathan Zipfel
    3. Hi all, As the Chairperson of the WorldGenWeb Project Advisory Board I sent the following message out to all our Country Coordinators. I would like to hear from you regarding this change by TGN/Ancestry/Rootsweb and the impact it has for the websites housed there. Your Advisory Board is discussing the future of the WorldGenWeb and our relationship with TGN/Ancestry/Rootsweb. A major concern is name recognition. With this new MastHead that will be on Rootsweb hosted pages there may be additional confusion for our visitors about whether we are just a part of Rootsweb/Ancestry. An option that is being explored is locating hosting through a commercial provider. Doing so would enable us to host accounts on the worldgenweb.org domain - for example worldgenweb.org/~sctrenfrew If the decision is to find hosting elsewhere for the main project website, we will not be forcing coordinators to leave the rootsweb server if they are satisfied with the level of service. For those of you hosted at Rootsweb and would like to move to our project domain specific website (scotlandgenweb.org or walesgenweb.com) please let me know and I'll set you up a free account. A note of caution - if you do move your website from Rootsweb, please do post a redirect page that automatically takes your visitor to your new location. Rootsweb does not permit them and will remove them and lock you out of the account. It is ok to post a notice on your page at Rootsweb that you website has moved and give the location of the new website - just don't make it automatically happen. I look forward to your feedback. Nathan ====Forwarded Message ====== To our WorldGenWeb Members, As has been reported in the past Rootsweb and Ancestry.com Community is planning on implementing a Masthead graphic on all webpages that are hosted on the Rootsweb.com domain. The implementation of this will begin sometime on or after March 15 2008. I've posted a page at http://www.worldgenweb.org/masthead/ so that you can see what has been proposed The Generic Masthead is the one that will be displayed on all Rootsweb host pages. Option 1 and 2 are being discussed by your Advisory Board. We are leaning towards using Option 2 on the WorldGenWeb domain pages. Individual Rootsweb account holders will have the option of using the WorldGenWeb specific Masthead on their pages. In order to us it you will have to place a snippet of code in your pages so that the server will display the correct Masthead. If the snippet of code is not in your pages the generic Masthead will be displayed. For consistency across the project we would prefer that you take the time to place the snippet of code but unfortunately this causes more work on your part for which I am extremely sorry. I will keep you informed as I learn more from Rootsweb. If you have any questions that I can answer please feel free to contact me. I've included all that I know at this point in this message. Thank you for your continued service to the genealogy community by your work in the WorldGenWeb Project.

    3. Dear Scotland and Wales County Coordinators Please read the following message that I sent on behalf of the WorldGenWeb Project Advisory Board about a change to our Policies. Please check your website(s) to ensure that your county website(s) are up to date! Thanks Nathan -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Nathan Zipfel Sent: Friday, August 24, 2007 10:36 PM To: WorldGenWeb Mailinglist Subject: [WORLDGENWEB] WorldGenWeb Project Policy Update Country Coordinators, Based on the excellent feedback, the Advisory Board has voted to add the following to the WorldGenWeb Project Policies. Thanks to all who provided feedback. Active Status To fulfill the mission of the WorldGenWeb Project of providing quality genealogical data and information it is imperative that each WorldGenWeb Project website be kept current. At a minimum each regional, country, state or province, and county* level project shall be updated once every 12 months. This update should include a check for any broken links, a change to the copyright date and a check to ensure that contact information is current. Additional items may be required by Country or Regional Projects. Project websites that have not been updated for a period greater than 12 months may be declared abandoned and the coordinator may be removed from the WorldGenWeb Project in accordance with Section VII and Section VIII of these policies. Making a change like this to the Policies requires action on the part of many of the coordinators in the WorldGenWeb Project. Please review your country website(s) to ensure that your project is in compliance with this change. The Advisory Board has set the date of October 15, 2007 for this policy to be fully implemented. If you have a situation where you know you will not be able to meet this implementation date, please contact your Regional Coordinator to discuss when you'll be able to bring your website up to date. For those of you who host your website on Rootsweb, a simple way to show when your website was last updated is to paste the following piece of HTML code in your main page This website was last update on <!--#echo var="LAST_MODIFIED"--> For those countries that have sub-country websites (counties, provinces, prefects, etc) - please ensure that your coordinators are notified of this change and ensure that they take the steps necessary to update their websites. I want to assure you that the Advisory Board has no interest in declaring websites abandoned on October 16 if the site has not been updated. We want to work with each of the Coordinators to ensure that they are successful in the duties of maintaining their websites. Should a decision have to be made it will be in accordance with the existing sections of the WorldGenWeb Policies and that decision will come from the appropriate Regional or Country Coordinator. On behalf of the Advisory Board I want to thank you all for the hard work that you put into the development of your country websites. I browse through the project occasionally and I'm always amazed at the resources that have been made available! Thank You! You are greatly appreciated!

    2. Nathan Zipfel
    3. Hugh, I agree, there is tons of great research assistance available on the mailing lists and through the Societies. The primary difference between the BritishIslesGenWeb and GenUKI is that GenUKI primarily has the links and addresses for resources and the BritishIslesGenWeb endeavors to place actual resource data on-line. Since it's beginning we did not want to duplicate what GenUKI was doing and so we requested each of the County/Country websites link to GenUKI. There is value in both projects. Some county coordinators have been very good at locating source records, cemetery records and such and getting them on-line.
