Comments Requested[edit source]
Neighboring Counties[edit source]
Is there any reason for "Neighboring Counties" to be listed when it is already listed competely in the Muncipalities/Communities at the bottom? We're trying to keep duplicate information to absolute minimum. Dsammy 17:48, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Headings on County Pages for Utah[edit source]
We appreciate the discussions and decisions made by a community of experts and interested parties regarding headings on the county pages especially for New York and Illinois, We want to adopt many of those changes and adapt some specifically for Utah. Will you please review the page for FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah County Headings county headings in Utah and make comments on its discussion page?
Some volunteers for WikiProject Utah have already begun adapting the county pages. Your great suggestions will be implemented later, and we need to move now to prepare for a big push in January 2012.
Making your comments on the discussion page will allow for transparency, progress and improvement.
Thank you Wilma Adkins, WikiProject Utah manager; Marilyn Markham and Patsy Hendrickson, content specialists; and Dawne Hole and (Joy) Wyzer17, communications and volunteers liaisons.

Hi There HendricksonP
I noticed that you have been removing the footnotes that I have attached to sources and references in several pages that I've worked on. I patterned that years ago when we first started on the wiki after wikipedia. It seems to help the reader with a more clean, clear article yet maintaining it's information. Is there a new rule that I'm not aware of? Just let me know.
Thank you so much

Tracing Latter-day Saint Ancestors Needs Help[edit source]
The Tracing Latter-day Saint Ancestors page needs some serious help. At the very least the "style" for most of the text needs a fix. Also something is causing the text to display below the sidebar rather than beside it. Since you are listed as the moderator, I assume you will fix these problems or find someone (not me) to do it. I would be happy to teach lots of readers about this wonderful page if it just looked a little more presentable. Thank you. DiltsGD (talk) 17:47, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
