Shifting the namespace[edit source]

Hey folks! While browsing today I came upon this page and saw that it needs to be moved to either the Help namespace or the FamilySearch Wiki namespace. Could y'all link up with Fran Jensen and Janell Vasquez and figure out which namespace to move it to? The main namespace is reserved for articles about genealogy research. Thanks!

Elder Fuller will be doing the moving of the article. Let me know if you notice any problems. I review my wiki admin notices at night usually so you might see the change before I do. We picked the Help namespace. Thanks!Horandm
Is this documentation for the Historical Collections pages in the Wiki only? And not for the general public use in their own research? -- janellv (talk| contribs)
These instructions do document the citations in the Historical Collections wiki articles. They are based on genealogical citation standards. Horandm
Yes Janell. These are instructions for those creating pages describing FamilySearch Records Collections using the FamilySearch Wiki:Guidelines for FamilySearch Collections pages article and not for the general public. It was originally placed in the "Main" namespace and then moved to the "Help" namespace. I am moving it again to the FamilySearch Wiki namespace which is where I believe it belongs.

I moved it back because the move may cause problems and it appears HoranDM and RitcheyMT already decided on the help namespace as appropriate.Lotje 19:54, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Change focus of this article[edit source]

Hi, I know there is a forum thread about this article and whether it should be deleted. My thought is to rename it something along the lines of Help:Understanding Source Citations for FamilySearch Historical Records Collections. Then the article could be rewritten so that readers can better understand what the source citation is telling them about the collection and where the information has come from and where the related original records can be found. --Steve (talk| contribs) 12:16, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

New focus / redirect[edit source]

I like the new focus for this article and see that the redirect is working nicely.  However, the paragraph that beings "An explanation of how the User Guidance Unit creates collection citations..." is a circular refernce back to this article.  I'm thinking this isn't what was intended, but am not sure what was and so cannot fix it.  It seems to me that the paragraph is not relevant since the entire article is now about that topic.  I would recommend that the paragraph (and ciruclar link) be deleted.
