The focus of this Wiki section of the City of Adelaide
website is to capture the details of the passengers and crew of the City of Adelaide
. The wiki-site will also provide a background and context of their lives - whether they were refugees from a European war; victims of the closing of the Cornish copper mines; hopeful migrants wanting to build new lives in a young country. This is a place where you can find details of:
- Biographies and Diaries
- Crew Lists
- Family Stories
- Geography & Places
- Passenger Lists
- Ship Information
The wiki format will allow you to browse detailed information on all of the above features. If you register and then log in to your account, you will also be able to add and edit articles as well.
Presently much of this infomation is contained in the Joomla portion of the site. Progressively, this information will be transferred over to this wiki-site. If you register, you might also be willing to help copying existing information to the wiki-site.
Another benefit of registering is that it is possible for you to create a User page and Talk page - just like Wikipedia. That will hopefully assist you in contacting other researchers interested in the same families and people. Being a wiki format, it is possible to work collaboratively with others to create a network of articles about your family and issues that you find interesting.
When you create articles about your ancestors, you can link them to other articles about where and when they lived. You can work wholly within this wiki, or you can link your articles to sites on the world wide web.
Please register and help build the picture of the life and times of the City of Adelaide
. If you have your family history in GEDCOM format, it can also be e-mailed or posted on a CD to the webmaster, who can incorporate the information into the TNG database used in the Joomla website, and which will be integrated into the wiki-site too.
