Thanks for spotting, and correcting, those double-redirects! I'd missed them. --Bromaelor 09:20, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your contributions to the Wiki. I am a member of the Wiki Support Team who monitor recent changes. I have noticed the Double Redirects that were fixed by you. Good work, spotting and fixing them. However, this is the proper way to create a redirect: #Redirect[[Name of page]]. Note there is no space between the word redirect and the brackets containing the name of the page. Thank you for your contributions and we hope to see many more. Parrisl 02:09, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the note. I normally do properly create a redirect, so if you could provide an example where I added the extra space I can try and figure out why I missed it. Dwsmith2 13:21, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
North America and
Before we can delete a page the links to that page must be corrected or removed. Please do this and then we can delete these pages. These are the lists of the links to be corrected :Special:WhatLinksHere/North_America The following can help you to do that. https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Help:Deleting_a_page#Unlinking_a_page Then put the delete template back on the page.

Dear Dwsmith2 I understand you are cleaning up the redirected titles to the Historical Records in the wiki. Here in the FS User Guidance team at the COB we have been conducting an audit to match article titles to the published collection titles. There will be many articles with redirects (currently about 150). Are you still cleaning up the redirects or should we look elsewhere? Please advise. firstname.lastname@example.org
Aduclos, Yes, I am still working on redirects. They show up on the maintenance report, so I'll just work through them as they come (not all at once, it might take me a little bit.) - Dwsmith2 00:26, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
