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: https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/FamilySearch_Wiki:WikiProject_FamilySearch_Records. 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 FamilySearch.org 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.
The FamilySearch Records Team
FamilySearch Historical Records
This heading and related records appeared in several places on the Illinois Vital Records wiki page. I rearranged the page and cleaned it up, which no longer made it a separate heading. Now I see that again you've added this as a separate heading on the page. I'm checking to see if the Historical Records team is providing different direction than the US/Canada research team when it comes to these wiki pages. I don't want anyone's hard work to be undone.
Thanks. Charlene Pipkin 20:50, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
