Revision of Santa Barbara page[edit source]

Hi! I'm new at this and appreciate that you took that material down, but it now says marked for deletion and I'm not sure if that's what you want since the page is headed fraternal orders. There is another page Dawson,_Colfax_County,_New_Mexico,_Fraternal_Orders that might be just the type of thing you are looking to do. Let me know if you want to keep the page and also if I can be of help! I hope you will continue to contribute.

Fixing Broken Links[edit source]

Thanks so much for all the work you're doing to fix broken links on the FamilySearch Wiki. You have been really putting in a lot of time and it's much appreciated. I wanted to let you know that in my capacity as a wiki support missionary I've been monitoring Wiki changes and have had to correct or delete a few of the links you have put in. I am not saying this to discourage you at all, but to ask that you take a second look at the link before you put it in. If you want me to send you a couple of samples I will be happy to, just let me know.

I would also like to encourage you to fill out your user page with a little information about your interest in genealogy and the wiki. You can find the link to that on the right sidebar under Personal tools.

Please keep up the great work!

Thank you, please feel free to send me any suggestions or corrections with my repair of broken links! I am learning and am sure you have much you can add so that I can improve.

U.S. Orphan Research page needed[edit source]

Most Orphan research links and websites are listed under National Orphan Train Complex..... or in a listing by state. I would like to create a United States Orphan Research page much like the United States Adoption Research page. Is there someone who can help me know how to do this? Thank you, Lorna Millward
