Very cool! You're getting it. I renamed the Person and Family pages accordingly and moved a few things around just for my own tastes, but you're on top of it. When you change someone's name, you might see a little link at the top-left that says "This page can be renamed". That's actually more of a request since the software notices the person's name and the page name no longer match. Also, for the source, you can try clicking the Find link to the right (which seems to only appear when the dropdown on the left has "Source" selected) of the input box. They have a dizzying number of sources already loaded up and you can usually just select an existing one like Source:U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900. If you read through the Source pages themselves, you can sometimes get useful hints, like Source:U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900 that says it's basically a giant collection of stuff and "Citation to an original, government-record-derived source should be preferred". But don't sweat that too much - I find countless pages with no sources at all. I'm trying to avoid that as much as possible - quality over quantity.
If you get frustrated, let me know. I have a huge head start with so much time at Wikipedia, etc., so don't feel bad... Colby Farrington 13:12, 19 December 2011 (EST)
