Updating Persistent URLs

Starting in October, we will be updating all persistent URLs to include 'ark.' at the beginning of the URL domain. For example, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M5X3-7BM would become https://ark.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M5X3-7BM.
There is currently a pending modification named updated.ark.uri that you can enable to see the changes to these persistent URLs.
