WIKI – Challenge 1 

Immigrant Valley Oct 2012

Add a picture to your county

As we work to update the FamilySearch Wiki and the CSGA California Research Aid over the next year we are looking for help from our members and from other interested individuals and societies.

Adding a picture to each county page on the Wiki really adds some class.  Help us out.  Submit a picture that represents something significant for the county.  It can be a landscape, a cityscape, or any thing else.  We do need permission to use the picture.
