When I was thinking about if I should link to the Wiki or not, there was actually one item that pushed me in this direction. Namely, I have for YEARS been wanting to put a family tree type thing up on abulsme.com. Several years ago I'd actually made some templates for the pages and such, but it was kind of a pain, so I never got very far with it. The Wiki thing has really enabled that by just making it a much more frictionless process to quickly get what I want up. I'd actually started with a big Excel spreadsheet and I now have 180 ancestors on that spreadsheet. (And quite a few of the "deep nodes" on there I know I can go deeper, I just haven't yet. For instance, the stuff I mentioned in New Deepest Relative isn't reflected there yet.)

I quickly realized though that I wasn't capturing a lot of interesting information in that format. So I started putting it on the Wiki and adding a lot more info. As of now, I have 28 ancestors up on the Wiki. I'll probably post whenever I add a new ancestor. But first I'll catch up on the ones I've already posted (don't worry, not all at once.) You can of course click through on the Wiki itself and find the others, but I'll post them here one at a time.

So of course, I must start at myself.

I was born in 1971 in Madison, Wisconsin. And I lived a bunch of places. For now I've left my Biography section blank. You may all feel free to add info there if you feel like it. :-)

Other than that, I think I'll start posting the others I already have up based on a breadth first search maybe one a day (maybe more, maybe less, we'll see). If I add new people I'll post them immediately if I already have their direct decedent posted, otherwise they will wait a bit.

Also, despite what I said about nothing being of interest to anybody, once you get several generations down, there are lots of people looking for this kind of information. After all, once you get back six or seven (or more) generations, these folks often have many thousands of decendants. And some of those descendants will also be looking into this kind of stuff. On some of these deep relatives I have found HUNDREDS of pages on the web where people are trying to sort out what information is known about some of these people. Most duplicate each other, and for those people I'll be duplicating too, but I'm trying to be nicely comprehensive when I can be and link to all my sources, so I might be of use to other people looking for some of these people.

I set up a personal wiki for myself a little while ago. Over a month ago at any rate. At work I had been using one on a daily basis to document projects and also just to keep a personal to do list organized. So I decided I wanted one at home too.

From the begining there was nothing to stop random people from playing with it if they found out the URL from somewhere (and there were a number of ways to discover it). But I was going back and forth on if I should lock it down so that only "authorized people" could see it, or just open it up and link to it from here.

As you can see, I ended up deciding to go ahead and link to it.

Not that there is all that much on it that anybody other than me would care about. For the most part it is an online to do list to remind me to do things. And yup, there is indeed a sort of grocery list on it at the moment too. All that sort of thing. But I'm also using it as a scratchpad for notes on various projects I want to do. Most of which, again, will be of zero interest to anybody but me. But hey, if I link to it and let Googlebot and the like spider it, then who knows, something might end up someday bieng of interest to someone... unlikely, but hey, you never know.

It is an open Wiki, so if anybody reading this wants to, feel free to dive in and contribute anything you may want. Add information to any of my projects that you think might be useful, or just add things to my to do list or grocery list if you feel like it. Whatever. Of course, things that are actually constructive would be prefered to adding "Please Bathe, you stink" to the to do list or some such. But since it is open, I really don't have all that much control over that.

At the moment I require registration, but anybody can register and start editing and such instantly. If that ends up being abused, I'll probably have to shut that off or restrict it in various ways. But for the moment, I'll give it a shot and leave it open. (Aside from registration.)

The links are on the left nav of the Abulsme.com Home Page now and will stay there indefinately unless I decide to pull it at some point.

Or of course, here it is in this post:
