Thank you

Thank you for sending Karen Munger the lessons for the Wiki. She came last week and I went out of town and did not put her on to those. You came to the rescue. AdkinsWH 14:39, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

How do I check on Maps Request?

Welcome and jpg maps request

Hi Marilyn thanks for my lessons and the nice welcome to FamilySearch Wiki.

I thought that I submitted some maps of Belarus that are in the public domain for approval so I can post them on the Belarus Wiki page. I don't see them when I search for jpg images.

Did I submit the request correctly?

If so, how do I check the status of my request?

If not, what do I need to do to add maps/photos etc.?

Why do I have two profiles, a new one comprised of numbers, and my old one?

Question.png I am looking for help!
Note to helpers: Once you have offered help, please replace this template with {{Helpme-helped}}.

Hello, Marilyn, and thank you for your responses to my comments about Czech school records.  I attempted to create a profile, as suggested, for my "new" profile (consisting of numbers only).  I added information, saved it and when I returned to the page, there was nothing there.  I went to my old username, and that profile page was also blank.

I am having a difficult time maneuvering through Wiki.  I find the instructions confusing--I don't even know if you will get this.

I spend a large amount of time researching archives, etc. and don't want to sit down and learn how to maneuver what appears to be a somewhat complicated program: already what I did read about creating profiles did not work for me.  Then when I tried to contact you, I really had to search around.  I don't feel this is very user-friendly, which to me is very important.

So to get back to my original question, why do I have a number username plus the username I use when I log into FS?  That alone is confusing.

thanks so much for your welcome email and links to get started. I'm quite overwhelmed with this, but will take it a step at a time and hope that I'll figure it out.
