Thanks for the Cook County military info!
Thanks for adding links to the military records book for Cook County! I wasn't aware of that resource and appreciate your sharing it. Lise 19:22, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Got any ideas on strengthening societies?
Good to see you here on the wiki, Amy. Hey, we're trying to figure out some ways that the wiki could help genealogical societies. I know you have some expertise in creating society Webpages; do you have any ideas as to how we can help societies here? I'd love to talk it over with you sometime. You can either leave a message on my talk page (the system will send me an email notification) or email me at ritcheymt aat familysearch dott org . RitcheyMT 16:50, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
