2012[edit source]

The Family History Library treatment of the 3 villages of Kingsdown in Kent is confusing; revision of the three entries and the search engine results would be welcome. I propose that this page be renamed West Kingsdown to reduce confusion.

This is a matter for Historical Records and a volunteer should be addressing your question, once they have been selected and trained.  In the meantime, there are two things that you could do to move things along.  

1. You could become a contributor and edit the page by adding the knowledge that you have of the three Kingsdown in Kent.

2.  You could post your concerns on the Research Forum for England, which can be found at the following url:  www.familysearch.org/learn/forums/en/forumdisplay.php?f=24

As a member of the wiki maintenance support team, we invite all with knowledge to help make the familysearch wiki articles better.  Thank you in advance for being part of the wiki effort to connect researchers with research information.
