Wiki Newsletter
[edit source]

Hi Wilma!  Hope all is well! The Wiki Newsletter after I accessed it from the Wiki homepage does not link to all of the articles on the newsletter. It would be nice to read these articles! Could you spread the word? :)  Also, I have quite a bit of time over the next few days - would you like help with a project?  I tried to email you but must not have your current email.  Could you email me? Kara

Sanpete[edit source]

You're welcome. They've digitized all those great Family Map books. And Sanpete is one of them. Murphynw 20:25, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah Experimental County[edit source]

I am impressed with the work you contribute to the Wiki. However, in patrolling the revision of line 670 on the above mentioned page, the tip seems a bit confusing. Parrisl 21:37, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Good job! The tip is very understandable now, like the rest of the work you do.

WA's links[edit source]

Contributors Meeting

WA: Check out the recording of the Researching in the Wiki class that Jan Edwards taught in Meetingplace. She did a great job and pointed out items that are in the Wiki that many of us have probably overlooked. Go to Meetingplace and look for past meetings for 2323, on Sept. 6th at 6:00 PM. (It might have been listed as 5:45).

Utah Stillbirths
[edit source]

I wouldn't want to mess up existing plans for this project plus I have plenty of other wiki duties on my plate, therefore I will mention this to you to work into your plan somehow.

Be aware that Utah stillbirths are kept separate from Utah death records and have different limitations. This information is not readily available on the state VR website. A separate form is required to obtain a stillbirth record for a closest nearest relative, these aren't released to the general public until 70 (75?) years after the stillbirth, and the exact year needs to be known (if under the 70-75 year limit; even though a range of years is acceptable for searching for a death record). No doubt there is other information that warrants being mentioned relating to this subject.

Email notifications[edit source]

Wilma, could you please give me a URL for one of the pages you're watching, and also check to see if the button for emails in your preferences is grayed out?  I need the information for the tech guys.  Thanks!averyld 14:50, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Wilma averyld 23:22, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Wilma, are you getting notifications yet?  James Tanner got a bunch all of a sudden.averyld 14:33, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Check the staging site and see if your preferences are still grayed out. I think they've got it fixed there. Now, we just need to get them to implement it. averyld 16:58, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Wilma, will you check the staging site once again and see if it looks like your email notifications are correct?  They think they've fixed it and plan a release for tomorrow.  Thanks, Lynda averyld 19:34, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Category:Outdated articles[edit source]

Thanks for the quick answere we will keep in touch about these pages. Sandralpond 12:56, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

I sent you an email about the Community Dialogue page, but wanted to add a note here to get your feelings about keeping up the Chronological page.

Think I messed up[edit source]

What model do I us for cities in Washington County, I just realized I got confused and used the model for Washington Counties for the Washington City, Utah. Maybe I should just leave them all alone!! How should I fix my mistake? Thank you. --Utahnancy 22:16, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Sandbox in the Main Space[edit source]

The wonderful following page, Sandbox:WAFixSidebarProblems, was found in the main space and we are returning User:AdkinsWH Sandbox:WAFixSidebarProblems to the User page. If this is no longer a useful page please put a delete template on it. Sandralpond 15:28, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

More sandboxs: Sandbox:WA Ideas for Contributors and SandboxWASidebar were moved to User:AdkinsWH/Sandbox:WA Ideas for Contributors and User:AdkinsWH/SandboxWASidebar. Sandralpond 15:53, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Tuedsay Meeting Agenda[edit source]

Wilma, I changed day of the Tuesday meeting but didn't move the future agenda's.  Do you want to take care of that, or should I?Lynda 21:20, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Wilma, I made the changes. Thanks for your sweet compliment!Lynda 15:51, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Contributor meeting projects[edit source]

Wilma, do you think we could add a section to the Contributors needed page for proposed projects, like the one we discussed today, or should we have a separate page? Would we need to assign someone to keep an eye on those so they don't get forgotten?

Also, please update me on the rights you need in the wiki so I can make sure you have all you need. We were also wondering about Joy having deletion rights and why she would need those.averyld 21:26, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Wilma, love your ideas for the project page! I'll play with that or get someone to do it. averyld 15:30, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Wilma, take a look at my sandbox and see if I'm on the right track. averyld 23:04, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Wilma, take a look at my user page now and let me know if it's ok and also, what do you think about a title of "Suggested Future Projects". Trying not to make it too long.averyld 20:38, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

I was planning on the same name space as the Community Meetings and would put a link on the main page for the meetings to this new page. I'll put this on tomorrow's agenda and see if we can come up with a name that works, but isn't too long. I also wondered putting projects in the title. That was just one suggestion that I got. Thanks, Wilma. I always appreciate your input.averyld 23:04, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I've created the page and named it FamilySearch Wiki:Community Discussions and Proposals. averyld 19:58, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Projects[edit source]

Wilma, what do you think about having a page that shows a list of completed Wiki projects?  And do you have any suggestons for showing that a project is finished - especially when searching.  Should the title be changed with "finished" at the end or something?  I'm putting together a spreadsheet of all the projects I can find with their current status, leader, etc. averyld 22:07, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Wilma.  Will welcome any suggestions you might have. averyld 19:58, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Wilma, I'm glad you like the idea of the finished projects page.  I haven't had time to get it done yet.  We are in Provo, helping my 93 year old mother, but I'll get that taken care of as soon as I can.averyld 20:31, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[edit source]

Wilma, Love to work with you. Hope I can help more in the future. Sandralpond 23:30, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
