Purpose

The Whipple Website (www.whipples.org) is dedicated to Whipples and their descendants, whenever and wherever they have lived. It is the goal of the associated Whipple Genweb (genweb.whipples.org) and Whipple Database (db.whipples.org) to collect, organize and validate genealogical information about descendants of anyone named Whipple.


Ownership

The Whipple Website is owned and maintained by Weldon Whipple, the webmaster, chief genealogist, hobbyist, programmer/engineer and system administrator. (Actually, numerous better genealogists contribute most of the information to the Whipple Website. Weldon tries to keep up with numerous emails from contributors, entering the information into the database, while minimizing typos.)


Genealogical Contributions

We welcome additions and corrections to the Whipple Genweb and Whipple Database. (Both sites present the same information, in different formats.) The sites focus on descendants of Whipples, their spouses, and the parents of those spouses. All descendants are included, even if their surname is no longer Whipple.

Most data formats are acceptable. Some common popular formats include:

  • GEDCOM files (if you have genealogical software that generates GEDCOM files). Send it (optionally ZIPped) to webmaster@whipples.org.
  • OpenOffice, LibreOffice, WordPerfect, Microsoft Word Excel, or PDF files as email attachments.
  • Scans of documents (in jpeg, png, or other popular formats)
  • Mail xeroxes, printouts, CDs and diskettes to the webmaster. (Send email to webmaster@whipples.org for the mailing address.)

(A blank pedigree chart and family group sheet are available for printing. If your browser can't display them properly, try downloading (for free) the Adobe Reader)


Funding

As the webmaster's hobby, the Whipple Website is funded entirely by him. He also provides all administration, programming and web hosting services for the Whipple Genealogical Web. It is the goal of the Whipple Website to remain completely free of charge.


Future of the Whipple Website

The webmaster intends to continue the Whipple Website in perpetuity. We'll see how that goes.
