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)

New Welcome

Hi Marlyn,

Love the new Welcome. Great Job Sandralpond 22:12, 16 November 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.

Wonderful Wonderful work not being seen

Dear Marlyn,

I just love the wonderful Welcome and lessons you are putting on the Talk pages. Just one problem. The first edit to a talk page doesnot go to the User in the form of an email or an alert on the page there has to be two put on the page. I just edit a second time and put an extra period. It is a glitch in the system. Though I had told you so sorry. I will activate the last back to February. Again so sorry. Sandralpond 15:02, 15 March 2015 (UTC)


Hello, Marilynbgardner49! I appreciate the invitation and reception. I inform you that I am already Wiki contributor (especially Portuguese) as well as inform you that I already have my contributor page. I am available this wonderful work. Vilmarbarbosa 20:07, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the welcome!

It was a surprise to get a user page!   I am trying to place the userboxes with experience in my page, but am getting a list instead of the boxes.   Maybe this will come with experience.   I also tried to upload a photo of me, with no success.   No doubt it is something simple I am missing.

Love indexing and working with FamilySearch although I am not a part of the LDS Church.   I hope I can contribute solidly to your site.

Marilyn, I patrolled her comment on your page so I answered her questions (on her own talk page).

Messing up on student assignment

Marilyn, I'm so sorry I messed up on that assignment. It's been the most frustrating thing I've ever done. I'm supposed to put that message in this wiki, make changes, do some other things, submit it to the teacher for credit. I can't get past the first step. It will only let me type in Rich Editor. When I move it back to the other, I cannot even enter it. And that's where I'm supposed to be for the assignment. I really want to learn how to do this, but after three days of changing computers, using different browsers, downloading Firefox and Java to see if that would work, I've got nothing and it still won't let me in when I click on that little irritating wiki box.

Sorry, I'm just frustrated. Is it possible for you to delete that assignment that I added? Somehow, I got into there. Wiki looks like a lot of fun, but after the last few days, I'm not sure I want to see it again for awhile.

Thanks for your help.
