From FamilySearch Wiki
Hi Don, It sounds like you've come up with a good project for you and your friends to do. The structure of a parish register online records table has been well defined in the FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject English parishes project. You should not deviate from it, as it is being implemented nationwide in England and has been agreed upon by those involved in the English parishes project.
If you wish to create a separate section for the more difficult to obtain CD editions of the parish register indexes, that would be appropriate. Murphynw 17:44, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
Navigation boxes at the bottom of Wiki pages is a standard feature of Wikipedia and the United States portion of FamilySearch Wiki. It is also a joint decision by Family History Library staff. The navigation boxes are being added by a team of missionaries from the Family History Library. I do not understand how that adding navigation boxes to Suffolk parish pages is disrespectful to your welcome contributions; however, if you would like to raise this complaint to the Wiki Community Council, here is the link: Wiki Community Council.

- I'm getting ready to do a Suffolk project. If you'd like to participate just, let me know. Murphynw 10:08, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
TOC and NOTOC
I have started to use the TOC and NOTOC on the webpages mentioned above. Those tags move and remove the contents box that is automatically generated when four or more headings appear on a page. Most of the pages are quite short right now so I am using NOTOC on the parish pages. The content box that is automatically generated often appears out of place.
I have put comment tags next to it so if someone edits the page they will know what the tags are for <!-- The tag __TOC__ allows one to move the contents box anywhere on the page. The Tag __NOTOC__ removes the contents box from the page-->
Area Conversion from Acres
Many of the areas noted in gazetteers and histories of parishes and other places are in acres. I have found a website that converts acres to square miles or square kilometers at metric conversions.org Most people are more familar with how large a square mile or kilometer is than an acre. Such as 3592 acres = 5.6 square miles or 14.5 square kilometers
You've added a delete template to this page and I'll be happy to do that, but there are a couple pages linked to it and I'd appreciate if you would fix those and get them where you want them first.averyld 17:36, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
