Cornwall broken links[edit source]

Hi David, Thanks for catching that. There was a problem with the code. It should be working now. Does it look like it's back to normal now? Thanks Murphynw 05:38, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

To all FamilySearch Wiki Contributors: An apology is in order...[edit source]

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

Change of Most Major pages names[edit source]

Dear David,

Thank you for your question and comment. All the pages with the word "Genealogy" in the Title were changed to "Compiled Genealogies" so the major pages could have the word "Genealogy" added to their titles and not have a conflict. This was done by permission of the Community Council and the one who did the work was Nathan Murphy. I have gone in to re-categorize the pages. Hope this helps to clear up this process.

An FYI. If you send a message to someone on their talk page it is good to add four ~ at the end of the message so they can more easily respond to you. Sandralpond 23:52, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
