Introduction

I have been doing genealogy and Family History for over 20 years now. The greatest strength of the Family Search Wiki is that everybody can add in their information to made it better. But that also means things can begin to look a little haphazard. What I really like doing on the Wiki is to organize the information to make it clear and useful, which helps everyone. I particularly like bullet points. If anyone else has a better way, then go for it. Just make the information clear and useful.

  • If information is wrong or misleading, I remove it.
  • If there is duplicated information, I eliminate one of them.
  • Otherwise, I combine and simplify the previously added entries.
  • Then I add my own information if I can.

I hope no one is offended by my editing. I know I am making changes to other's efforts, so I try to keep in mind what I would have wanted to see when I was just starting out in genealogy. I do this editing for those who are new and don't know where to look. This wiki can be a great resource for them.

    • Life and Times of Parley Pratt Sabin
    • Life and Times of David Sabin
