Fixing Up The Wiki

Hi All;

Several of our members have had trouble viewing our Wiki on smaller terminals such as 17" laptops. In order to remediate this issue we've done some tweaking of the settings (thanks to Pat Geary for her expertise) in the Wiki such that the Wiki window should now (hopefully) size to your screen and/or the width of your browser window. For those of you who have not had any trouble in this regard, you may now have to size down the width of your browser window to get the same look as the original (and coincidentally, the way I designed it).

If you're still having trouble seeing the entire width of the Wiki, try clicking on the little bluish arrow in the upper right hand corner of the Wiki window. This will eliminate the sidebar and extend the Wiki to cover the whole of the browser window.

Finally, if you prefer, you can download the MSWord version of my draft article. Its located at the bottom of the Intro ('s%3A-Intro) page. Its called Joseph Mx.doc. It doesn't have all the graphics that the Wiki has nor does it have all of my notes about the graphics, but it is the article as I originally wrote it for the IMFA Newsletter. Feel free to download it.

I hope this helps.

Cheers, Wayne

Mx Book: Cain & Allied Families of Mullinix & Wright

Looking for a copy of Cain and Allied Families of Mullinix and Wright, by Ruth Hutcheson Craft. Out of print, probably self published, as publisher is listed as Craft, dated 1978.

IMFA's Wiki:

IMFA has a wiki. US332 Masugu (aka our Wayne) took on a monumental task and the results are phenomenal. Working with US294 George Mollineaux on an extension of George’s article about the Mx Quakers of New York state, Wayne has researched a lot of history and found great illustrations for this article, a portion of which is excerpted in the February 2009 issue of MxWorld.

A wiki is another kind of website. It makes collaboration and editing easier for joint authors. We invite IMFA members to add items or comments to the existing pages OR to start new folders for other Mx ancestral lines.

If you have any questions, contact Masugu at for assistance to put your family history stories and photos on the wiki.
