Ability to Edit Data

With long term aim of getting more community sourced information on the site, users can now edit details on 'People' eg, date of births, biographical information etc, and it functions a bit like a wiki.  All changes are backed up so no damage can be done! You have to be logged in just because otherwise clearly anybody or robot could come along and hijack it.

Next step is going to be hopefully ability to put some family trees up, as there is a lot of interesting things found on sites like Ancestry that I'm unable to reproduce here at the moment.

I've tried to edit the page on W.W. Fereday (full name, year of birth and date of death) but keep getting the message "Sorry an unknown error occured!"

Partly! Fereday's full name and date of death have now been accepted, but his year of birth is still shown as "Unkown" [sic!] instead of 1866.
