Hi,

I hope this isn't inappropriate advertising, but I thought that perhaps WAGS geeks might be interested in coming along to this discussion this weekend:

The Western Australian branch of Wikimeda Australia ('WikIClubWest') is hosting a discussion and workshop about how to write and maintain biographies on Wikipedia and genealogical data in Wikidata.

It will be held in the BiblioTECH space at the State Library on Saturday July 22nd from 1 to 3 p.m. and will feature demonstrations of various things such as how to add your genealogical research to Wikipedia and how to query Wikidata — but will also be a general question-and-answer session, so do come along with any questions you have about Wikimedia in general!
Thanks,
Sam.

Hi Sam

Great to read your post and the discussion/workshop sounds very interesting. All being well, I'll be there and make mention of your group at the next Computer Group meeting in August.

Thanks for posting.

Cheers

Julie

WAGS has its own GenWiki for those interested. Needs some updating & others to become involved as updaters and admin roles.

Go here for a bit of an outline: WAGS GenWiki Outline

Get involved and have some wiki fun
Cheers,
