Hello![edit source]

Dear FamilySearch Historical Records Contributor,

We noticed you recently contributed to one of our articles and we wanted to send out a quick thank you for contributing to a FamilySearch Historical Records' article. You may not know it, but this is a new project that is just getting off the ground and your contribution helps! The information you provide is invaluable to those users who are searching out further information about collections in FamilySearch; it helps them make a deeper connection with their research, especially when it has to do with their own ancestry. It’s your contributions that are keeping the project rolling forward. Thank you.

We'd love to have you become part of our community here. We've got lots of ways to get involved a little deeper into the project and what the project entails: In this page you will find information about the FamilySearch Records project, getting started in wiki editing, tasks for which you can sign up to volunteer, etc. We are excited you have decided to share your talents, time and resources towards forwarding the goals of and those who use it (including you!).

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you and help you out in any way we can.

Rathdrum, Kootenai, Idaho[edit source]

Warren, I just got a message that you had deleted the page with the above title. That is the correct title. We are listing towns in Idaho in the order of town, county, state. The page that should be deleted is in the order of state, county, town. I have transferred all the content of the page entitled "Idaho, Kootenai, Rathdrum" to the correctly titled page. Jimmy B.

Sidebar links to the forums[edit source]

Hi Warren,

I noticed that you changed the forums links in the sidebar from two specific link to one general link. What was the thinking behind this change? --Steve (talk| contribs) 19:45, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

I changed the link on the Spanish because they seemed to be redundant.  I didn't notice the difference of the links so I combined them on the

Block user[edit source]

Warren, I don't know where else to post this. It appears you have blocked a user in the past so probably have rights. It appears that User:Pkzwwnoka has been replacing good articles with random genealogical data in a block. I've tried to revert (manually or using the undo button) the two articles I found (PRF and one on using the Internet) that were changed to this block of data. I'm wondering if this is a spam account. Could you fix this or transfer it to whoever oversees blocking. Additionally, any help in making such complaints easier to report would be welcome! --User:GreenwoodKL

Thank you for reporting this issue. I have put a block on that user. If you see anymore instances please let me know. --Warren

Hi Warren, do you think that blocking the user should be the first action. I agree that the contributions should have been reversed, but these look to be the first edits of a new user rather than anything malicious. The blocking policy talks about blocking being a result of not following policy or conditions of use. So what I'm saying is shouldn't have someone tried to contact the user first before putting the block on. --Steve (talk| contribs) 16:50, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

The thing about this particular issue is that this person didn't have a created talk page to write anything plus the username leads me to believe it was a random username created. Warren

Warren,  Why did you delete the page Santa Clara California Family History Center/Contact Information?  I had help creating this page from Bro. Smith at Wiki, so I think it's legit.  I would like to have it restored. Can you help do that?  Thanks Cgehlbach 00:20, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Christine, get back to me if there is anything else I can help you with. Klk3 00:28, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
