Completed parish links in Hereford Poor Law Union, Herefordshire Genealogy Decars 18:05, 31 August 2011 (UTC) and removed copyright material encountered. Decars 18:05, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Herefordshire Poor Law Unions completed. Hereford Poor Law Union, Herefordshire Genealogy needs links to parishes adding. I'll work on the removal of gazetteer entries to copyright material in the weeks ahead. Both British History Online and other sites contain copyright text. In GENIUKI pages it is necessary to transcribe directories and gazetteer material, therefore any plagiarised text should either be transcribed from the source or removed. Vision of Britain gazetteer entries you questioned begin with the preface "In ---- {name of gazetteer} described {place name} like this:" The website clearly displays the copyright on the home page ©2009 University of Portsmouth and others FamilySearch would do well to advise contributors that gazetteer entries are copyright material and should not be added to parish histories; there seems to be a widespread addition of copyright material.

Census records[edit source]

Glad to help and yes there continue to be FamilySearch server error messages but it slowly seems to improve. Hope that the demo will help overcome Herefordshire Census problems and that your image caption problems do not persist or they fix the rich wiki in future. Hostelry 23:04, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

The image caption problem is slated to be fixed, along with other items.  The image enlargement issue and upload of images has been corrected.  Please continue to help us with Wiki.  Thanks so muchLynda 19:55, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
