I do not believe several paragraphs discussing the origin of the word "Arizona" teaches our readers how to find ancestors who lived in Arizona. It is not within the scope of this wiki. Please consider replacing this with more genealogically related material.  DiltsGD 18:28, 7 September 2012 (UTC)


I'll get to work on it.

The important things (like topics-links and county-links) are still "below the fold," and relatively unimportant things (like factual information which should probably be on other state pages) are above the fold. The purpose of the state page in NOT to divulge loads information, but rather to be a Table of Contents--a jumping-off point to the other pages--for the state. As a Table of Contents page for the state, there is something off-track if the Table of Contents page itself has a Table of Contents. The New York page shows an order of presentation that is closer to what we like to see on a state page. DiltsGD 17:32, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
David: I certainly agree. I think the concept of the "Portal" Wiki pages is still in transition. You are certainly welcome to make any changes you think would improve the presentation. Maybe when we "finish" the Utah Project, we could have an Arizona project?
