2 Nov 2009,  I began working with Fran Jensen as a Wiki Community Specialist. I'm excited to help with the wiki community, welcoming newcomers, and doing all I can to help make the FamilySearch Research Wiki a friendly community that is easy to use. I need your help! Please consider yourself invited to join Steve's Welcoming Committee. What a great way to meet other "wikians" in our community and learn the ropes together. If you have suggestions, they are most welcome!  Kara aka CK Whipple 23:19, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

5 Jun 2009 As a consultant in the US/Canada Reference Unit of the Family History Library, I have been assigned to the vital records team which creates pages and content for finding birth, marriage and death records for each state.

Our goal is to create a format that is useful, informative and invites contribution from the community to enrich the content.  Eventually, we would like the wiki pages to be THE PLACE to go for genealogical information.

A general format for vital records pages was first created for Alabama.  We began working on pages in alphabetical order, but other states have been addressed as new members have joined our team with an interest in a particular state. We encouraged your contributions in the areas you have studied and researched. Many contributors have gone before us and added content to the wiki.  We are most grateful and hope to integrate content from all sources in such a way as to enhance the wiki users experience.
