Hi Jaburgess! I'm glad you added information to the Alpena, Michigan page.  That's an area I've researched, and keep thinking I need to do something about the wiki page! I noticed that you added some information about who holds what records in Alpena County, Michigan.  The text looks an awful lot like content from the Handybook for Genealogists.  Because we don't have permission to copy their content, I would suggest that you take a look at that section and see if you can't rewrite it to share the information without violating either the spirit or the letter of copyright law.  Then be sure to include a footnote with the source of your information (Handybook for Genealogists, which edition, etc.). If you need help, let me know! Lise 18:29, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
