General Rodovid Policies and guidelines for all languages.

Rodovid uses a Mediawiki engine, others Mediawiki projects (like Wikipedia) have Pillars, Policies and guidelines for its use. A wiki engine invites all users to edit any page or to create new pages within the wiki Web site. Rodovid is a multilingual site that allows all users add and edit genealogical records in many languages, but we have no clear rules. And these rules need pillars.


[edit] Defining Pillars

The genealogical work implies use primary sources, make an original research, in some cases have an hypothesis, and analyze the information recoleted, and to make conclusions. All those things are opposed to one of the Wikipedia pillars. But Rodovid is not wikipedia, because a personal genealogy is a personal and original research.

[edit] Defining a mission

The wikimedia foundation have this mission "Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge". Do we have the same mission?

What is our mission? Create the most bigger family tree? Make a global genealogical tree? Show ancient relationships to the present? Share relationships or genealogical projects? Publish personal researches?

Our mission - give an opportunity to build, share and connect trees. --Igor 00:14, 23 March 2010 (EET)

[edit] Is Rodovid a Genealogical Community?

Are we users, genealogists or researchers?

It's levels of users. --Igor 00:11, 23 March 2010 (EET)

[edit] assume good faith

[edit] Is Rodovid a primary source?

  • can we make genealogical deductions? Or do we need to use written sources? Parish records are primary sources? Are allowed oral sources?

Why not - sometimes it's the only way to find smth because of WWI and WWII so on. --Igor 00:12, 23 March 2010 (EET)

  • What can we do when sources are contradictious? For instance:
Chlodion le Chevelu. Rodovid gives him 4 fathers and 3 mothers! Even Wikipédia quote most of them as falsifications. Could we find a better way to explain it? Isn't it better to wrote these supposed family links in notes or in a wiki-page? --Christophe Tesson - talk. 22:03, 3 April 2010 (EEST)

[edit] Personal and colective projects

  • When a project is personal?

I don't understand aim of this question.

  • Is a research a personal project?

[edit] How old must be a record?

  • no restrictions --Igor 00:16, 23 March 2010 (EET)
  • depending on local rules and laws.
  • By ukrainian law - 75 years. but, if user and his relatives decides to open information - there is no restrictions
  • French État civil (state records) won't give any written record younger than 100 years in France. So oral sources are the only one possible in france for less than 100 year-old records. User is allowed to publish source about himself --Christophe Tesson 09:35, 23 March 2010 (EET)
  • Stop. we're talking about publishing copy of documents or providing record about minors at all? --Igor 09:49, 23 March 2010 (EET)
  • Sorry... I mean french Public Records Offices are not allowed to give any birth or marriage certificate, which was written during the last 100 years. Anyway it is not very important. --Christophe Tesson 17:30, 23 March 2010 (EET)
