User talk:Lembley/Introduction to LDS Family History Centers

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Some of the FHCs do not have access to the Websites, only those Centers who have access to the FHC Portal can offer free access to the sites. For example, our Stake has a "Family History Center" but it is not a recognized center and does not have access to the free sites. James L. Tanner 21:41, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm guessing that when you say "is not a recognized center" that it would not show up in the list of FHCs in your area, right? Lise 02:50, 14 May 2011 (UTC)


I understand films available through inter-library loan (public library) can actually be ordered and viewed at FHCs. Can anyone explain that process? Is that unique to some large centers only? Lise 18:14, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Films available through what organization? janellv 02:57, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

I rearranged a bit in the article, I think it helps to have an introduction be as short as possible and let the meat be included in the structure of the article down below. I also deleted two of the ways to find FHCs - although they are perfectly valid, I think that someone who is in the wiki is going to be sufficiently computer savvy enough for the 3 options mentioned to work, and it tends to frustrate people if they have too many options coming out of the gate. Lastly, I am concerned about the 2nd paragraph but haven't figured out exactly why yet, I just don't think it fits. I'll think more on it but at the moment would recommend deleting it.... janellv 02:57, 25 May 2011 (UTC)


Last comment - these two articles look like they should be merged:

Great revisions.  I agree on all counts.  I also have concerns about the 2nd paragraph, specifically with the mention of missionaries.  It is a fact that there are full time missionaries serving in some larger FHCs.  However, using the word "missionary" may misconstrue their presence as having a proselytizing focus.  How best to merge overlapping articles?  There are several articles linked to them, as well, that further the duplication.
