Cool, thanks. I'm an admin at Wikipedia (where I also edit as Slambo), so the technicalities of editing here were pretty straightforward for me. My biggest concern was that I avoid stepping on toes as I learn more about the editing culture here.
In my own family research this week, I was looking into the Egly Amish of Indiana, since Bishop Henry Egly was my wife's 2g-grandfather. There are a few more links that I've found that would be helpful to other researchers, but wasn't quite sure about this wiki's policies on external links. On Wikipedia, external links by themselves have a less than stellar appeal. So, I'm still reading up on policies and guidelines here before getting further into editing.
