To all FamilySearch Wiki Contributors: An apology is in order...

By way of introduction, my name is Ben Bennett and I’ve recently joined the FamilySearch team as the product manager for the Wiki and Forums. Put simply, my job is to ensure that your experience, as contributors and users of the Wiki and Forums is excellent. To this end, an apology is in order.

As you know, we recently implemented a new user ID/sign in process for the FamilySearch Wiki. As we implemented this new system, I personally heard from many of you. You shared with me problems that were occurring for you as you tried to sign in, edit or do other things that resulted in lost work, lost time and frustration for you, our key contributors and users. Please accept my sincere apology for the poor performance and poor experience associated with the Wiki during the past few weeks. Please also accept my commitment that the FamilySearch team will learn from this experience and do all that we can to prevent situations like this in the future. To this end, I wanted to share with you ...CONTINUE

Dear Phillip Dunn,

On the pages of England Merchant Marine, England Military Records, and England Websites, we see that you have changed the England to British and put a delete on the old page. In order to delete these pages we need to move the old URL’s so they go to the new page. Our problem is that the Navboxes at the bottom of the page. Who ever created the box set it up so that everything on the page goes to the England title? We can do redirects to help this problem or go back to the England title. We would like your input on this so we can get the pages deleted.

Thanks from the wiki:

The FamilySearch Research Wiki is delighted to let you know that the "Ireland Emigration and Immigration" page you helped create has become a Featured Article, highlighted on the Main_Page of the Wiki, and will remain there for seven days. Thank you for your excellent work to help others quickly access records. Your contributions are appreciated and continue to assist others in finding their ancestors.
You have made a tremendous difference in research!


Featured Article nomination:

The information you presented in your article on "Compelling Reasons Why The Irish Emigrated" certainly expanded my knowledge of possible reasons why my own ancestors may have left Ireland.  Your article is well-organized and interesting! 

I was wondering if there are any resources you might add or links of some kind that would lead users to references to the information given or to emmigration or immigration information?  If so, would you include them or any other relevant information that might further researchers' success.  Your list of further reading might already include much of this.

As a member of the Wiki Featured Article Committee, I would like to give you the opportunity to add whatever resources you deem necessary before recommending your article for inclusion as a Featured Article.  Thanks for your consideration.  Thank you as well for all the quality pages you have contributed. Glo

Better to move a page than recreate page under different name

Hi Phillip,

I noticed that you blanked the page Furnival's Inn, Middlesex and then recreated it as Furnival's Inn. If you want to rename a page it is better to move it. By doing so, the page history is kept in tact and a redirect is created so that any page linking to the old name will link to the new page name. --Steve (talk| contribs) 18:21, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Blank Page


Your assistance is requested. The following Westminster Abbey or Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster, Curtain Road, Middlesex, Glasshouse Yard, Middlesex, and Brentford, Middlesex, bland pages were found in the Wiki.
We would like your guidance on how to deal with these pages. Do you wish to delete or redirect these pages? Thank you so much for all the work you do on the Wiki.  Sandralpond 20:51, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
