Hi Beth - this is what we send to new users. Maybe it will help you help others? Any suggestions are most welcome! :)
Comments Requested[edit source]
Consensus decisions already made[edit source]
There were several feature changes decided by consensus in the past. One is replacing "History" with "Quick Facts" in first section and replacing "Local Histories" with "History". This was on the basis for potential misunderstanding brought up in the Wiki Technical meeting months ago. Anything in the "Resources" section is very important to the researchers as finding aids and referrals to sources. Dsammy 03:21, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
