Welcome to the Kennamer Wiki Project (KWiP).
KWiP is an attempt to coalesce all known family history into a single source with an accessible style, foremostly based on information from "The Kennamer Family" book published in 1924. Later, time and wits permitting, information about generations more recent or further back than those listed may be included, if sufficient citation is identified.
What you see before you is a rudimentary version, not open to the public (per se) and still under construction -- essentially "unpublished" in the equivalent of looking over the administrator's shoulder to see what he's working on. It is almost continuously a work in progress, and may be edited on a broad scale from the version you had seen in your most recent visit, even perhaps during the very visit you are presently making to it.
Also, keep in mind that the information displayed here is not necessarily immutable fact. They are only true according to the source material. For instance, the popular genealogy site ancestry.com lists Asaph Kennamer's parents as Rebecca Boshart and David Riley Kennemer, while the 1924 reference book used for this site lists Asaph's parents as Rebecca Boshart and Stephen Kennamer. Whichever is actually the proper parent is not made claim -- the information listed here is loyal strictly to the 1924 edition's claims.
Sunday, December 11, 2011 / 3:00pm - I'm going to try to use this main page as an opportunity to test out some formatting options I've discovered. Since I am a descendant of this family, it could be said that I am related as follows:
- Hans Kennamer (17xx-18xx)
Sunday, December 11, 2011 / 2:30pm - I've begun exploring this wiki architecture and know quite starkly little about its formatting options, but I'm exploring. I've got a vague picture in mind about what I'd like for KWiP to look like, such as a two- or three-tiered generation listing for each name's individual page -- and initially focused squarely upon exclusively the information listed in the 1924 version of "The Kennamer Family" I have in physical form with me. I have little concern as to whether its copyright is susceptible to legal action, under the understanding that facts themselves are not governed by copyright, for the same reason you're allowed to republish the contents of a phone book without permission. The editorial comments in the book, however, are currently a gray area.
