Email Member about their MI Entries
You can now send an email direct to a WAGS member who has something of interest to you, by clicking on the Membership Number. Just enter the Subject as "WAGS Members Interest Directory".
Members individual MI pages
Previously WAGS members had their own individual page for their contact details and a list of all their Members Interest submissions. Whilst this service is not currently available we are working towards having pages where members can keep their own interests up to date, which will update in the main table.
GRD & Chapman Codes
Country and County Codes are no longer used to abbreviate place names in the Members Interest Directory.
All entries will now show the the full name of Locations, State / County and Countries. All new entries will need to be in the same format, as shown in the instructions below.
State / County Names
In some cases, the State & County names for Locations in the table have been amended to reflect the actual county in which a location now falls. This may not be the traditional or "historic" county. The boundaries for some counties have changed over time, and the jurisdiction for a location has consequently moved into a new county or city borough. Other locations in the table have yet to be amended to their changed county; these are planned to be done over time.
If your entry in the Members Interest table has been amended and is causing you problems, or you would prefer to maintain the "historic" County for a particular location, please contact the Webmaster by email outlining your concerns.
Please follow the instructions carefully as failure to do so may result in you having to resubmit your entries. All entries need to be in the exact layout and upper or lower case as per the example below.
