HenthornFamily Wiki

HenthornFamily Wiki

Today I am pleased to announce that the HenthornFamily Wiki is once again active and available to family and friends who are interested in my genealogy projects.

The WikiSpaces company discontinued "free" Wiki space.  Rather than lose all of the information I've been sharing I decided to pay for a one-year subscription at the "Plus" level.  I haven't thought much about what features this will entail.  Perhaps the most important aspect is that the subscription includes 2GB of space.

Did you know that the HenthornFamily Wiki is a collaborative Wiki? This means two things and perhaps more 1) Visitors can make comments and 2) they can post their own information. As far as I know no one has done this in the months that the Wiki has been available.  Therefore, I'm not certain how this works. I'm interested in working with anyone who has the time and interest to try out this idea.

Here's the link to the HenthornFamily Wiki:

After I reactivated the Wiki I noticed there is a problem with PDF files that I stored on the Wiki. They don't display correctly.  I think you can download to your computer.  Before I contact the Help folks I'll need to refresh my memory about how files are uploaded and stored on the Wiki.  I wonder if the problem has anything to do with the fact that my account was inactive for a while since they stopped offering the "free" space.  I'm making no promises about how soon I'll deal with and resolve the problem.  I apologize for any inconvenience.
