Hi HawkBlade124. Thanks for adding resources to Virginia and Barbados. I've work extensively on both. I'd love to see you develop a User Page, so others can know who is adding these great resources. Murphynw 00:35, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

We wanted to send out a quick letter of appreciation for contributing in one of the FamilySearch Historical Records articles. The information you provide is invaluable to those users who are searching out further information about collections in FamilySearch; it helps them make a deeper connection with their research, especially when it has to do with their own ancestry. It’s your contributions that are keeping the project rolling forward. We want you to feel a part of our community here.
We are excited you have decided to share your talents, time and resources towards forwarding the goals of FamilySearch.org and those who use it (including you!). If you need a few tips in getting started, we’ve set up a page for you: https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/FamilySearch_Wiki:WikiProject_FamilySearch_Records.
In this page you will find information about the FamilySearch Records project, getting started in wiki editing, tasks for which you can sign up to volunteer, etc.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you and help you out in any way we can.

Suggestions to make record clear and searchable:
In perusing the candidates for Featured Articles (FAC), I noticed that you were the original contributor and might still have an interest in improving the article, "England Births and Christenings."
Here is my main question and suggestion: I wondered to what "Index" one is referring throughout the article in general and in various categories. The records would be more easily understood and searchable if "this index" or "the record", was clearly delineated. The reader can only surmise that "the record" or "index" is connected with the "England Births and Christenings," If the reader arrived at a particular heading, the reference would be unclear and confusing. I certainly do not wish to take upon myself to interpret the originators' references, so would you help and others who created the article help clarify? Your help and hard work are always appreciated. Glo
Apparently, I am still learning. As indicated by the first two paragraphs of the link to Known Issues , the Family History Records Collections "you all" or "ya'll" (as we say in Texas) have included in the system were entered years ago before the benefit of the current technology. As indicated, "what you see is what you get" was the philosophy. I suppose that eventually information will be updated anyway. Will that be within the wiki or as a FHL project? Glo
