Hi there,

I see my great grandfather "Samuel Victor Robinson" is in the BHC data base and would like to add some info to his page.  How do I go about doing this.  Thanks.

Cindy

Hello Cindy,

                As Samuel Victor's entry came from the "Original Database" it has been decided that KarenM and alanmack, the Data Co-ordinators will substitute for the originators of the record, so we will do any editing. If you wish to add to or correct the entry please put the new information in the Reader's Comments box and save the record and we will process it accordingly.

It would help too if you made a couple more posts so that your count reaches the required three to use the Personal Message system for contact with other 'Chatters via the database.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the reply.  I'm trying to find my way around the chat boards.  Lots of great info being posted.

I will definitely post in the "readers comments" so the additional info about my g-grandfather can be updated.   Will get 3 posts in quickly so I can use the private messages as well.

Hi Cindy,
             That's the ticket!  :D Yes, get the three posts in so you can use the PM system. If your new information is too much for the box (>500 chars) then PM me with the text instead and I'll do the necessary that way.
