I'm new to RootsChat.  I have found an entry for my grandmother Margaret Mary Beasley (listed as Mary Beasley) and her sister Lilian Beasley.  I would like to edit/update their info, but not sure how.  Also a 3rd sister is not listed, May Beasley.  They are BHC sent to Canada.

Hi madbusch,
            . . .  and welcome to RootsChat and the BHC database. So pleased you found your grandmother and great aunt.

As their entries come from the "Original Database" the way to get changes made is to add a Reader's Comment in the appropriate box on each of the records. KarenM or myself, the data co-ordinators, are acting as the originators here and we will make the changes for you.

Should your changes be extensive (>500 characters) then it would be better to PM (personal message) either of us with the data and we will take it from there. This is one reason why the PM system is vital to the database but you need to get your post score up to three for it to be available to you. So answer this a couple of times and you will have made it.

Regarding the aunt missing from the database, this is a somewhat different process and I will cover that in a later post here.

This isn't easy trying to figure out where to post.

Was going to add to one of the BHC that I have been tracking. And offer to add even more but don't know if I am doing this correctly and if it will ever be found on this site.

I also have over 1200 children that went through my city through two orphanages was going to see if any are listed on this site.
But again I am suppose to post three times, but not sure if I am in the correct spot to post. Oh well.
