We welcome any query on Who When Where. If you have previously posted it on another forum (including the old WDYTYA forum), please state this in your opening post - this will save people redoing the research which has been done before: they can look at it and possibly go further with it.

Who When Where Genealogy Forums Community rules

1. About us

This website is operated by Who When Where Genealogy Limited, a (not-for-profit) company limited by guarantee and registered in England and Wales (number 12670596). The company is run by a group of enthusiastic family history researchers, operating this website and moderating posts in
our spare time and without remuneration.

Our forums are provided to the public free of charge for educational purposes and we are sure you will find your use of them informative and enjoyable. Please consider making a donation to help towards the running costs if you find the forums useful.

These rules are designed to ensure that all of our guests enjoy their experience here. When you join and contribute material to a forum you accept, and agree to abide by, all these rules.

2 Membership

Membership of the forums is open to individuals who wish to discuss matters relating to family history subject to a registration process and compliance with these rules. We reserve the right to refuse registrations and terminate memberships. Non-members may read contributions but not post.

New members’ activities will be restricted until they have reached a minimum number of posts. The number will be set from time to time at the administration’s discretion.

You may adopt any user name that is not already in use, but we may reject any name that in our discretion we consider inappropriate.

The forums are primarily for amateur genealogists to help each other discover more about their families. If you are engaged in research for financial gain, your contribution is valued and you are welcome to participate but if you post queries relating to client research you must make this
absolutely clear in the posting. Anybody suspected of breaching this rule will be banned from the forum and their posts removed.

Members can include a short link to a personally maintained non-commercial genealogy website in their signature or profile, or both. Links which
we consider to be unreasonably long or inappropriate may be edited or removed. Links to other commercial enterprises will be deleted.

We operate a strict one registration per member policy. Please do not register under more than one identity or email address.

3 Copyright

When you submit a contribution to a forum, you:

 grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide licence to reproduce, distribute and make it available to the public. We will permit other users of the forum to quote from your post if appropriate.

 warrant to us that your contribution does not infringe any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person and that you have the right to grant the licence mentioned above.

If you are not in a position to grant such a licence to us, please do not submit the contribution
