Motivation Monday: Bored? Consider updating the FamilySearch Wiki

  I recently received an exiting announcement from FamilySearch. They've made it much easier to update a Wiki article. Instead of doing the formatting yourself (something I struggle with doing correctly!), you can now submit a fill-in the blank form. A volunteer will transcribe the information for you. You can read the announcement here.
  Why do I care? Because the FamilySearch Wiki is used by beginners as a way to research new locations. I used it to search several Connecticut towns recently and discovered that many haven't been finished. They're useless - researchwise. But that's some that can be easily fixed. Have an interest in a town? Consider sharing it. You'll be helping the whole genealogy community.
