1820 Utica == The Need to SyracuseRequest Editing Rights ==When the FamilySearch Research Wiki began in 2008, anyone with a FamilySearch login could edit and make changes to the Wiki. Because of spamming issues in 2016, FamilySearch Management decided to change editing priviledges to known legitimate users with interests in the further development of the Research Wiki. Thus, in June 2016, new roles were created to the Wiki called, “editor” and “page creator.” Unfortunately, because spammers had numerous Familysearch accounts, there was no way to differentiate a legitimate editor from a spammer until an edit was made. Therefore, it required that everyone who wished to edit the Wiki (including longtime Wiki editors) to make an official request. This was a one-time experience as Wiki roles are '''not''' changed over time.

Settlers and Records[[es:Ayuda:Roles de editor de Wiki y creador de página]][[pt:Ajuda:Funções Editar e Criar Páginas da Wiki]]
Because so many immigrants traveled on the canal, many genealogists would like to find copies of canal passenger lists. Unfortunately, apart from the years 1827-1829, canal boat operators were not required to record or report passenger names to the New York State government. Those 1827-1829 passenger lists survive today in the New York State Archives. Prior to the building of the Erie Canal the settlers in upstate New York were often from New England, especially Vermont. Once the Canal was finished, setters along the canal [[Category:Writing and farther west into Ohio would have reached the Erie Canal from New York City, or from along the Hudson River in New York, or from Vermont via the Champlain Canal. Most of the men who labored to build the Erie Canal were from Ireland and many of them settled near it. ReferencesEditing Wiki Articles]]
