England Family History Centres[edit source]

Henry995 Thanks for editing out the Center spelling. A work in progress but if helpful Orpington Family History Centre, Kent is out there. Feel free to edit cosmetically. I am grateful for a community member spotting these emerging yesterday. Most Centres are unaware of the pages.

Hi Henry, thank you for raising this as an issue. Charles Smith created the page FamilySearch Wiki:Family History Centers Naming and Content. I then added a proposed style guide regarding this issue to that page. Please feel free to add you comments to what I have suggested. --Steve 08:06, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Contributor Help[edit source]

Steve ... thanks for working on the Contributor Help boxes. I put those up for Janell, where she told me to. I am perfectly fine with whatever the two of you decide. Thanks for checking with me, and thanks for everything you do for us. Jane 14:55, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Family History Centers (USA)[edit source]

Please take a look at the recently changed article Introduction to Family History Centers and the discussion on the talk/discussion page. I stated my case and I am not going to be involved in a edit war. A member of the SLC FHC department needs to have input here on the different type of FHCs designated in the April 2010 directive. And on similar subject articles.

Please pass this on to an administrator or the appropiate person. Thank you. Jrcrin001 07:36, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi John, thank you for asking me to add my thoughts to Talk:Family History Centers. I agree it may take an authoritative voice from SLC to resolve the issue. I know that the wiki administrators that are FamilySearch employees are on the case. --Steve 09:49, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Changes in welcoming[edit source]


Much thanks to you, for spending time in the Wiki with all the tech changes you help with, we are all in you debt.

As you know we want to improve the process for welcoming new authors and editors in the Wiki. I have spoken both to Janell and Kara and both are excited about the changes you are going to help us make. Even though you know this Steve I wanted to send this to you with changes coming in June:
this is in part what I sent:

We will have another Welcome Message Template designed to be more individualized. The others will be there too but we hope that you will use this new welcome message.

Steve Cottrell will be helping us with the Template, a special thanks to him.
Please read more carefully what the contributor or editor have put on the page. The current steps listed for reviewing the contributions are good to follow.

Avoid adding the welcome message before following the steps outlined.
The question Templates will stay the same.

We thank you again for all you do.
