From FamilySearch Wiki

I noticed that you added some "(FamilySearch Historical Records)" pages. Since you were the creator of the pages I have a question for you. How did you know what pages to create? Did project leaders give you a list of pages that needed to be created?

What I am wondering specifically is, how did you know you should add the Pennsylvania Statewide Deaths article? 

When an article is added and given the tag "(FamilySearch Historical Records)" it will say "...scheduled to become available for free online at FamilySearch." in the widget box under the title or it will give a link to the database that is already available.

In this case, the statewide deaths (for PA) are not allowed to be put online by state law. So really, I'm wondering why FamilySearch Historical Records representatives told you to create this page, knowing it would say "...scheduled to become available for free online at FamilySearch."

I know it is probably a small oversight and I loved the page until it got tagged for deletion. I was just confused by it saying "scheduled" for a collection that cannot be legally put online. I know you probably just added it cause you were given a list of titles to add, but maybe you can ask the people who gave you the list about this issue.

Maybe other articles are being added which claim collections are "scheduled" to be put online when such action is against the law of the particular state? It is worth checking up on that I think.

Sorry for the lengthy soap box.--McCormickMW 00:56, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
