David, do you still want the NY pages deleted?  They link to several others.  Example:NY State Archives and New York State Library
Template:Nycc
Template:NYClinmap

No, no! Sorry, this is a misunderstanding. I deleted the old template on one primary page and failed to realize the template was still connected to other pages. Give me about 30 minutes and I'll have them all fixed. Then delete the templates only -- no primary pages. Thanks. DiltsGD 15:25, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

David, Is this page still necessary for the Pacific Island collection, since the IGI is in FamilySearch.org now? Find Ancestors on the IGI

Pacific Island Guide:

Thank you for the article titled Pacific Island Guide to Family History Research. In reviewing the neutrality of this article, I would like to offer suggestions to help resolve this matter. With changes already under way about access to the IGI database through the new familysearch.org, that the following be done:
a. an external link be placed in Step 8 directing the researcher to new family search org.
b. The researcher could also be directed to the nearest family history center for help in utilizing the IGI database.
By these two steps, Step 8 remains viable for the researcher AND this portion of the article remains within WIki article policy guidelines.
I was pleasantly surprised to find this guide while patrolling familysearch wiki as part of my wiki support assignment. I can trace my Polynesian ancestry through Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, Tahiti, and Hawaii in the South Pacific. The use of the IGI in my research was to assure that ancestors had been identified for LDS ordinance work. That was the extent of it. The IGI was not a 'connection' research tool - I used anthropology, missionary/traders records, and the nobility-village records [oral and written]to rebuild my polynesian ancestry. Thank you for sharing your expertise on the Pacific Islands.
Would you consider the above a and b suggestions as a solution to the neutrality template? I look forward to hearing from you. We worked together almost a decade ago on UGA projects and look forward to finding a way to make Step 8 'work' for other researchers.
