About Alliances Tribal Pages
Here it is - an attempt at describing the descendants and affiliations derived from...
(1) the family of Grants that immigrated from Blairgowrie, Scotland mid 19th Century and Settled in the district of Dunedin, NZ.
(2) The Dyson Family who settled in Point Chevalier.
(3) The family of Charles O'Reilly and Elizabeth Behan of Ireland who settled in Opotiki, NZ.
(4) The family of Thomas Sparks who originally resided in the Hutt Valley where he Married Mary? Robinson after which they settled to Carterton.
(5) The Lemberg family.
(6) The Vickerman family.
(7) The Andrews Family.
(8) The Nash, Wheeler and Weller Families of UK and NZ.
(9) The Associated Sparks family of NZ and Australia.
(10) Tim Grant has just added a huge section comprising his ancestors...more later.

(a) I have been pondering what label to give our rather extended set of family trees.  As from 30th October 2020 I thought we could try out the name ,"Alliances" until someone comes up with a better label which will need to be approved by the Council of Contributors.  The Council of Contributors had its Inaugeral Meeting Wednesday 11th Nov 2020, NZDT and this matter can go onto the agenda for future business.

(b) Security of personal information is always on my mind.  After chatting  around, on the 31 Oct 2020, the security level of our Tribal Pages was switched  from "Medium" to "High" and all other Family Tree information removed from the homepage.  This means that uninvited persons entering the website can see only this homepage. 
They will not have access to any other page on our site. 
They will not see any names.
They will not see any personal photos. 

At security level "High", only invited persons (guests, members and administrators) can view  any other information on our website by using their own password which nobody else should have access to.  Those persons that have already been invited and given access to the "Alliances" Family Tree have the confidence of the facilitator who sees them as trustworthy,  enthusiastic about their family tree and keen to preserve the security of the information.  After the Inauguration of the Council of Contributors on Wednesday 11th November 2020, any further invitations will need to be confirmed by the Council of Contributors.

I notice that some Contributors have been politely checking that living relatives give their permission to have their name and other details included on the Family Tree - this is an initiative that is applauded and something we all must do.  If a relative does not wish to be included in the family tree, they may be comfortable with an anonymous  "place holder" label such as Sibling 1 or Sibling 2...and so on.  This will enable the structure of the Family Tree to be extended to their descendants should that be acceptable.

Cheers, Warren
