Moderator/Adopter issues coming to a vote[edit source]

As you probably already know, FamilySearch launched an Adopt-a-Page program at the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference over the summer. Many groups are signing up to adopt a page. We need your help in order to resolve some important questions about the relative roles that Moderators and Adopters ought to play and how they can work together. These questions and discussions are on the new FamilySearch Wiki Contributors' Corner forum. We are going to hold a vote on these issues by year's end, and the resolutions will change the roles Moderators and Adopters play, so please visit the forum and add your thoughts. Thanks!

Question: Where should info re: a published book re: obituaries be posted? Newspapers? Cemeteries (related somewhat)? Vital-Death? (I'm leaning towards newspapers, but wanted to check with you.) Thanks! AnnaBBB

Technically they are a newspaper record. If we had a karge quantity of them, we could add an additional heading at the same level as newspapers, in alphabetical order, so it would show as a separate item in the Contents list at the top of the Wiki page.Jimmy B. Parker 07:01, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Hello - Just wanted to let you know that you can search for churches (and other "features" such as towns, schools, cemeteries, etc.) at the US Geographic Names Information System. The system includes current and historical (no longer existing) features. It provides the county and longitude/latitude. I thought this would be a good way for you to find churches.

Jimmy -- Would you mind to make a populated places expandable box for a SC county? I'd love to see how this is put together. Could we create one for Berkeley County? Murphynw 17:40, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
