Comments added since last week

  • Naming spaces
  • Rather than go back and change all the pages again, I think I'll just let the bread crumbs at the top of the page do the trick for the Spain pages in English. I will also do the same for the pages in Spanish. If we make sure the top of the page has bread crumbs, people should be able to distinguish from a province or a city of the same name by the order it appears in the bread crumbs.
  • Placement of Gazeteers
  • Thanks,
    I have edited our local parish pages which are subject to FamilySearch Indexing agreements and added to the original contributor User page the reason for editing.
    In Kent all existing existing Kent Online Parish Clerks initial page creations contain much more accurate and detailed gazetteer material and maps for parishes, including satellite map images. As we progress those pages to cover over 400 parishes it may be more useful for FamilySearch wiki to link to that material than simply reference one gazetteer source, which unfortunately in the case of Downe contains some inaccuracy.
