I restored the page but transformed it into a "re-directory" to ensure anyone who type in Austria-Hungary will be directed to Austro-Hungarian Empire page as well as to any other appropriate related pages. What's left is a short article to be included in the page for Austro-Hungarian Empire itself along with additional links to appropriate topics and articles. Currently only a category exists. dsammy 02:52, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Opava, Opava, Opava
I checked the locality, and I see there are 3 levels according to FamilySearch Library Catalog, that is "Opava, Opava, Opava, Czech Republic", and according to Wikipedia it is:
City - "Opava, Opava Okres, Moravian-Silesian Region, Czech Republic"
I guess Opava Land you mentioned must be "Okres" otherwise district, is it? If so It would be simply "Opava Land, Czech Republic Archives", providing the article is a very long page with details, otherwise it should be within "Czech Republic Archives and Libraries" page if any shorter. dsammy 03:03, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Moderator/Adopter issues coming to a vote
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!

We wanted to send out a quick letter of appreciation for contributing in one of the FamilySearch Historical Records articles: Wiki page Croatia, Delnice Roman Catholic Church Books(Family Search Historical Records).

Netherlands Guided Research
I've recently seen the new "Guided Research" pages for the Netherlands which you created. I am not allowed to edit those pages but do have several suggestions. Under the "additional records" section with the table by province are some issues, for instance suggesting the site Vereniging Veluwse Geslachten for Groningen, whereas the Veluwe is a region of Gelderland. Several of the other websites mentioned have only local coverage or are not the best website for that region or province. I also feel more detail should be added about several other things, including the sites GeneaknowHow, OpenArch and the many unindexed church records in the Netherlands. As currently written the page seems to suggest that if the record cannot be found by searching in the sites on the table then it doesn't exist. I also think providing links to the FS Wiki pages on Netherlands Civil Registration and Netherlands Church Records would be a good idea. As someone not involved in managing the wiki, I'm also interested in why the "Guided Research" was needed since it duplicates the "Research Guidance" which in opinion was better as it dealt with different time periods differently (e.g. in the Netherlands research before and after 1811 is drastically different) Thank you --Av85647 (talk) 02:50, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
- Thank you for your feedback. This is a special project by FamilySearch that is currently being developed and is not part of the regular wiki pages. We will take your advice under consideration. Have a great day! Pysnaks (talk) 16:14, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
