Thanks for your suggestion![edit source]

On the Utah Wiki Project page you suggested Native American records and linking to organizations based on descendancy, such as the Jared Pratt Family Association. These are great ideas we will certainly want to implement. Thank you. AdkinsWH 23:57, 15 November 2011 (UTC) PS Please consider writing something on your user page. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you[edit source]

Daggard- We appreciate the discussions and decisions made by a community of experts and interested parties regarding headings on the county pages especially for New York and Illinois, We want to adopt many of those changes and adapt some specifically for Utah. Will you please review the page for FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah County Headings county headings in Utah and make comments on its discussion page? Some volunteers for WikiProject Utah have already begun adapting the county pages. Your great suggestions will be implemented later, and we need to move now to prepare for a big push in January. Making your comments on the discussion page will allow for transparency, progress and improvement. Thank you,<br>Wilma Adkins, WikiProject Utah manager; Marilyn Markham and Patsy Hendrickson, content specialists; and Dawne Hole and Wyzer17, communications and volunteers liaisons<br>
