Wikitext Editing Instructions

Part A - Adding the Intro Template

1. Click on your chosen county name in the Assignment Chart. This will take you to your county page.

2. Login to the FamilySearch wiki using your FamilySearch login name and password. Find the sign-in area in the top right-hand corner of the page.

3. Scroll to the heading Church Records.

4. Open the Church Records heading for editing by clicking on the pen in square on the right-hand side of the page, opposite the heading title.

5. Click on the word wikitext in the toolbox at the top left of the edit box.

6. Place your cursor immediately after the heading Church Records and strike the enter key on your keyboard.

7. While in wiki text, copy and paste the following template under the heading Church Records:

{{IN Church Intro}}

8. If there is any other text under the heading, be sure to place the intro template on a separate line before any additional text.

Part B - Adding the subheadings

1. If any records are already added to the church section, determine which congregation to which the records belong.

2. Using size 5 heading, add the name of the congregation for a subheading, such as Baptist, Methodist or Society of Friends. If the record is multi-denominational or you cannot determine the congregation, add a heading called General. This heading should come before the other denonimations.

Make a size 5 heading by typing 5 = signs before and after the heading.
Example: =====General=====

3. Be sure each heading is on a separate line and before the text which applies to that congregation.

4. Arrange the congregation names in alphabetical order. This may require moving some text which is already on the page. Do as follows to move the text:

a. While in wiki text, position your cursor in front of the text which needs moving.
b. Left click and drag your cursor across the text to highlight the information which needs moving.
c. Right click and select cut.
d. Move your cursor under the correct heading or at the correct line on the page and hit enter on your keyboard to move to a new line.
e. Right click and paste the moved information in its new position.

5. Do NOT add congregation headings if there is not information about that church.

6. Scroll nearly to the bottom of the page. Type a summary sentence in the Summary box saying something like, "Added church intro and headings".

8. Follow the directions in the Assignment Chart section below to report your completed task.

12. Save the page and exit.

Example of Completed Heading

Church records and the information they provide vary significantly depending on the denomination and the record keeper. They may contain information about members of the congregation, such as age, date of baptism, christening, or birth; marriage information and maiden names; and death date.

The members of some churches were predominately of one nationality or ethnic group.
