This is just a FUN project. Strictly voluntary......participate if you want to, don't participate if you don't want to.
If you decide to participate, now, but later decide to remove your name and town....you can easily remove your name and town. If you want to remove your name/town completely from the Windham Family Frappa Map, and you are having problems doing that..........just left mouse click on 'Contact Admin' button in the upper right hand corner of the Windham Family Frappr Map. Then tell the Administrator that you want your name/town removed from the Windham Family Frappr Map. Your name and town/city will be removed from the Map, no questions asked. You can always rejoin the Windham Map at a later time if you so choose.
Go to the following website and take a look at where some 'Windhams' live. If you want to, sign up to put your name and location 'marker' on the map (remember, you can remove it later if you want to). Most people seem to want to use their first/middle and last name. However, if you don't want to list any last name (surname), at all, then you can do that. Just list your first/given name (without a last name) if you want to participate without using your last name. Your pin-marker will then show where you live, using just your first name and the city/town where you live.
Your marker is placed by using your five-number zip code, so the marker will be 'close' to where you live, but not exact. (example: my location marker is automatically placed about 10 blocks from my actual residence).If you are not satisfied where you marker is automatically placed, you can move it to another place of your choosing.You cannot place your marker on your exact residence location, the program will not allow it for privacy reasons.
If you want, you can use the Frappr (Friend Mapper) 'Shoutout' feature to post your earliest proven Windham ancestor. Doing so will let everyone know which Windham family you are researching. For an example of this type usage, left mouse click on my red location 'marker' pin which is placed at Metairie, Louisiana, on the Windham Frappr Map.
You may just want to take a look at the map and not put your location marker on the map, it's up to you.
Following is the Windham Family Frappa Map website address:
Bookmark or put in your 'favorites' this website so you can come back, regularly, to watch the progress of where the 'Windhams' live.
This fun project is not just for people who have the last name of Windham. It is for all Windham descendants, so if you are a Windham descendant but now have a different surname, this project is still for you.
