===== Feedback on Glossary Format =====
Any suggestions on the format and layout of the Glossary? (see A ---- [[A genealogical glossary terms]] ----for example of how it looks with content from FamilySearch glossary with foreign words -- note that formatting is still a work in progress). Is it unwieldy? Are there too many entries to be useful? Should foreign words be moved to a different part of glossary? Who else ought to give feedback?   More thanks.  [[User:Brycefifield|BryceFifield]]
:I think it would be better to put the language specific terms in separate articles like [[Welsh Gravestones]] for example. Then the purpose of the Glossary would be to include technical terms unfamiliar to a beginner. Also I think you could cut down on the file size of the pages by using the built in glossary code. For example
 {| cellspacing="0" border="1" align="center!style="width:50%"|You type!style="width:50%"|You get
|-
! style="width: 50%;" | You type ! style="width: 50%;" | You get|-| <pre>;term &nbsp;:explanation</pre>|;term &nbsp;:explanation 
|}
