Genealogy | Submissions | Genealogies | Queries | Thumbnail Bios
Welcome to our user-to-user corner.  Here you will find resources contributed by your fellow visitors to this web site, members of the Norfolk Genealogy online community. (We have no Genealogies online yet, but will soon.)

Want to share something you've found? (Perhaps your grandmother's biography, or a scan of a historical record.)  Want to ask a question?  ("Anyone researching the same family?")  This is the place to share.

Submissions are whatever others contribute.  A few restrictions apply, however. Our focus is Norfolk County, its history and people.  Please stay on topic.  The exception might be what came before or after, such as the biography of a geographically distant descendant or ancestor of a Norfolk citizen.

Accuracy of submissions is the responsibility of the contributor.  The webmaster cannot and does not verify submissions (although he will pursue any apparent conflicts in the historical record as time allows).

Contributor's contact information (typically an email address) must accompany all submissions, so site visitors may contact the submitter.

What to contribute is up to you.  The following is merely a list of suggestions you may want to consider.  One Tip: Don't wait until you're "finished" to contribute.  That may be years from now. 

What to submit...
- The sort of content you'd like to find when visiting this site ...
- Genealogies
- Scans of old photos
- Scans of old old records
- Queries
- Enhancements to content already online.

How to submit: Email is best, assuming your data submission already exists as a computer file.  Contributions on paper, can be mailed to: John Cardiff, Rural Route 3, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada N3Y 4K2. Data file compatibility: files must be Windows compatible.

Genealogies should be submitted in GEDCOM format, or Family Origins format, or Microsoft Word, or WordPerfect format. Photo Scans. Any Windows compatible image file format is okay. Queries.  E-mail Queries to the webmaster. Be sure to include a sentence or two about those you are researching, to help others identify the family. Site visitors will contact you directly.
