Does not fit the scope of the Wiki[edit source]

Hi Dorothy: The article was deleted because it was about an individual own research on their own genealogy. The wiki, of course, is not about people's personal research or wanting help with it. If the article had been appropriate, I would have just moved it to the Spanish Wiki.

What you can do is put a "Watch" on the pages you all create so when they are altered, you will be notified and you can make any corrections if necessary. However, all new pages created show up in our patrolling which give us a chance to check for errors and appropriateness. Charles......................

Record Search browse images only collections[edit source]

Hi Dorothy, I see that you have changed the link within the wiki, on the England, Durham Diocese Bishops' Transcripts - FamilySearch Historical Records and England, Norfolk Bishop's Transcripts - FamilySearch Historical Records articles, so that someone following the link will end up in Record Search on a screen that invites them to Search records in the collection or browse images, the words browse images being a link to the same page linked from the Search by Collection, Europe page.

However if someone tries to search for anything on that page no results are found. I believe this is because the images are not yet indexed. As this is the case why not restore the link on the wiki article so that it takes a user straight to the Browse screen? --Steve 15:04, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi Steve. Now I understand what you had in mind. I'll leave the ones that you've created there. I don't think our unit will be adding that to the template at this time, however. I am trying to find out what the purpose is of having a bar with 0%. I'll e-mail you if I find that out. Thanks for being so creative! Your templates are wonderful, just what we didn't realize we were looking for until we saw them. I appreciate you working with Chris Lake. He is our main wiki guy.
Thank you. Now you understand why I had added the option to change the link to the Browse screen, I will restore the ones I had already changed. I have already told Chris about this option being available in the template. --Steve 15:49, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Brazil, Bahia, Port of São Salvador Passenger Lists (FamilySearch Historical Records)[edit source]

Dorothy sorry it took so long for me to replay to your question. It was placed on my User page not talk page so I didn't know it was there. User:Kellimon who is a Missionary at Historical Records put a delete on this page. I have gone back and found the main link to the collection doesn't go to any collection but to [[1]] which appears to be a port to many pages in many languages. Hope this helps.

United States, GenealogyBank Obituaries Collection Errors Article[edit source]

Hi, Dorothy.

This page came up in a report I do every week because it doesn't have a category. I can take care of that or you can if you would rather I not edit the page. My question is, is this an Historical Records page? If so, would you mind renaming it to reflect that - or I can do it. We try not to made edits to the Historical Records pages.
