Thanks for the Addition to County Pages

I am on the Wiki Support team. I am adding the FHC to the county pages and was worried about the pages that would not get a FHC addition. THANKS for the great idea. Wonderful. Hope to do all the English Pages all 4500+. If You can please keep up all the work. Thanks again. Sandralpond 13:34, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Stub Removal

Hello HarrisonJB

We at the FamilySearch Wiki would like to use this article, McDonough County, Illinois, for a featured article on the Main Page of the Wiki. However, the word "stub" appears at the very top of the page. If you feel there is enough content to give researchers a good place to work from - we need YOU to remove the word "stub" from the article before we can feature it.
Thank you for your consideration.

You have made a difference in research!

Headings on County Pages for Utah

Hi HarrisonJB,

We appreciate the discussions and decisions made by a community of experts and interested parties regarding headings on the county pages especially for New York and Illinois, We want to adopt many of those changes and adapt some specifically for Utah. Will you please review the page for FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah County Headings county headings in Utah and make comments on its discussion page?

Some volunteers for WikiProject Utah have already begun adapting the county pages. Your great suggestions will be implemented later, and we need to move now to prepare for a big push in January 2012.

Making your comments on the discussion page will allow for transparency, progress and improvement.

Thank you Wilma Adkins, WikiProject Utah manager; Marilyn Markham and Patsy Hendrickson, content specialists; and Dawne Hole and (Joy) Wyzer17, communications and volunteers liaisons.
