Whanau Records Online
We have now launched the Whanau Records Section of our site as discussed in the post [url="http://whakapapa.maori.org.nz/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=682&FORUM_ID=30&CAT_ID=2&Topic_Title=Whanau+Records%3A+Ideas+and+Suggestions&Forum_Title=Whakapapa+%2D+General+Questions"]here[/url].
This section of our site is for members to add whanau (family) records to create online whakapapa and to awhi (help) others who are looking for information
Depending on how many records are linked to a record, you can view relations, including grandparents, parents, children, sons / daughters in law, grandchildren , aunts, uncles and 1st cousins in chart form
The grandparents tree also has the iwi (if it has been added) to help trace iwi connections
Anyone can search the records, but you must be a member in order to view the records
At the bottom of each record is the member who added the information. You can contact each member through email or PM
Photos can be added to records
Records can also be marked private. In order to view these records you can contact the member who added the record.
We have added some records from information in the Forums, search for names and if they are not there then feel free to add them in.
If you come across any errors (ie: reocrds will not add etc, put a post here as we will be monitoring it for a while to see if there are any errors.
Kia ora PapaPanui Admin and maori.org.nz!!!
WOW! These are so easy to do - the help guide is great also and helped me to be able to add in records. I love the Whanau Relations also and having each row (children, 1st cousins etc) in a different colour also helps to be able to see exactly who is who
I know the development stage has finished, but I was just wondering if it is at all possible to have, as well as DOB and DOD Date of Burial and Place of burial as some of my whanau (and I am sure lots of other whanau) died in one place and are buried in another place. I never thought of that when we were testing and if it it too late now for that kind of change it's ok - but no harm in asking
Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
Ive been having a really good tutu i here tonight, infact I've been going at it for a few hours now. Sometimes I felt like I shouldnt put the names in, sometimes I made mistakes... which brings me to ask two questions, can I tidy up the info I just put into the 'whanau records' and can I also remove stuff. Please help.
Kia ora PapaPanuiAdmin & Māori.org,
Sorry its me again, I havent visited the Whanau Records since I last posted in here 10 Sep 05. But I think whanau records is a wonderful idea thank you very much.
I was just wondering...actually, I read somewhere else that someone had asked about deleting a mistake in a post, and it was fixed. The problem I was having in Whanau records was many of my records doubled up (sometimes more) and I wanted to remove a few of the extra ones and link the rest up to eachother. I think I have a wonderfully large whanau, and have many associated whanau members (ie. my in-laws) that others may want to see or share their lines to.
I often wondered about the 'whanau itellectual property issues' involved with posting, are there any steps I need to take to protect these before I carry on? Personally I think that whakapapa is for everyone, but others may not share my point of view. Kia Ora.
It is good to see you all having a tutu and putting up questions here. I will go through and answer a few of them
To tidy up records
Make sure you are logged on and go to the Whanau Records Section.
On the left hand side in the second box down under Records you will find View my Records. By clicking on this you will find all the records that you have added and under each name you will find a button that says "Edit Record" - this is where you can tidy up your records.
Another way is to click on the Name of the person in the "View My Records" list and you will get Undate Records buttons there also.
whanau itellectual property issues
click on the "Help Guide" in Whanau Records and have a read of the "Private Records" section. This explains what to do and how to do it if you want records to be marked as private Kei a koutou te mana - the decision is yours!
Deleting a post is not the same as deleting a whanau record, and so I will get onto PapaPanui Admin to write the code to delete posts - good point edwards.jacqueline and something that may not have come up in the trial series - but that does not mean to say that we can not get it happening. It may take a week or so to work through the code, but I know PapaPanui Admin is good and will be able to do it. Hmm.. Labour Weekend this coming week, so I better say it could take 2 weeks
