Broken links have been fixed.  Content needs to be updated to reflect the changes at FamilySearch.org, including links in the references. Lynda 17:08, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Stripping the titles off website links

Please do not strip the titles off of website links leaving only a bare URL. If a reader wished to see the bare URL with no hint of a title, all he or she would have to do is hover over the website name and the bare URL would appear in the lower left corner. Also, when a URL gets broken, it is easier to find the new URL if the person fixing the broken link can Google the name of the page. The Family History Research Wiki Manual of Style shows that bare URL links without a name are considered "incorrect."

Finally, ponder the examples of how website links are usually cited in Wikipedia.com to see how to do it in a classier way.

Thank you for your cooperation. DiltsGD (talk) 14:54, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
