 Discussions

On individual records
Discussions are general message boards that relate to individual records.  These can contain questions, speculations, comments, or general notes that someone would like to post.  Researchers posting information do not have to be logged into the system, but if they are, their name and email will fill in automatically.  Email addresses are only displayed for researchers who are logged in -- so no need to worry about attracting more spam.

For contributing updates on someone's name, dates, or places, it would be good to use instead the Suggestions feature, as the moderator can apply the changes directly.

If you are not already the moderator of a person, go up to the
 
and
 
menus, to "Add", and choose "a Discussion Post".  If you are already the moderator of a person, this goes to the edit page for the person, rather than adding an entry under "Discussions".  Here you can add your information in the notes.

General comments
On other general pages at the bottom is an option to post questions, comments, or add information -- anything related to the page in question.
