There are many genealogy software suites available, why use a wiki?
A number of reasons:
- Most of the genealogy software available is complex to use. This wiki allows everone the opportunity to easily and quickly add information.
- The wiki allows collaboration. If there are issues (dates, names, etc.) in dispute they can be discussed on the talk pages.
- The plain text in the wiki allows for easy reuse.
How do I get a myname@Roux.co.za email address?
Unfortunately, due to limited funding, there is only a small number of Roux.co.za mailboxes available and your chances of getting one is rather small.
May I build my personal homepage here?
Sure, you may add personal content under your User page.
May I put my photo album here?
Please don't, this wiki is privately funded and have limited disk space. Rather use a service such as Flickr and link to it from your User page. Turning this wiki into a photo album is one of our non-goals
One or two photos per person article is however encouraged, especially historically relevant photos.

I have a different surname, how do I set up a .co.za wiki for my own family?
If your domain is available you will need to register it and find somewhere to host the wiki. Host4Africa is a good, inexpensive option. They will register the domain in your name and provide you with hosting space.
Once you have the domain and space to host it, download MediaWiki and follow the installation instructions.
