Shoulda told you about this![edit]

Thaks for all the DC photo! Have you seen Wikipedia:WikiProject_National_Register_of_Historic_Places/Fall_2011_Photo_Contest#Challenge_.233_Washington_DC. The contest starts on Friday October 21 (photos taken and uploaded after October 20)

I think there is a minor mistake on your part, and a major mistake on my part about the Takoma HD. I'll try to correct them tonight.

Gotta run.

Grant Road (disambiguation)[edit]

Hi, I've tagged Grant Road (disambiguation) for speedy deletion under G6, as it currently disambiguates only two pages of which one of these is the primary topic. I added a hatnote at Grant Road which should resolve the need to disambiguate from the Historic District. Best, France3470 (talk) 07:35, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

WP:PR[edit]

FYI Wikipedia:Peer review/National Register of Historic Places listings in Downtown Davenport, Iowa/archive1...when I nominate it for WP:FL I'll include you, and let you know ahead of time. CTJF83 20:24, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Farragutful (talk) 20:26, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Several reasons to say hi.

  • Outstanding photo work in DC
  • and starting the Dr. Franklin E. Kameny House
  • a Walking Map to the hardest place to get in DC (I hope)
  • the PR of Downtown Davenport should go well I'd think
  • I've rarely given out barnstars, but have to learn sometime. Just let me know when and where (and a maximum number) and I'll go and hire a truck.
  • Happy thanksgiving.

Sincerely,

Smallbones (talk) 03:26, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I knew about the boundary marker near the Potomac, and the map, but I was running out of daylight the day I was down there. We're supposed to have good weather here for the next week so I might try again. It's like going to the other side of the world for some reason and I know very little about South DC so I'll see what I can do and what kind of time I have. I want to get a picture of the Kameny House, however. Happy Thanksgiving. Farragutful (talk) 22:32, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
we all know you won the DC challenge to the photo contest. why didn't you self report? Slowking4†@1₭ 13:14, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Since you have more detailed experience about individual properties, in general the downtown properties are what, like early residences of the city? I mean I can look and count myself, but I guess I'm just thinking of something general to put in the lead to summarize all of the properties. I don't think I want to put # of houses, # of commercial buildings, # of fire stations, sounds boring to me. CTJF83 21:23, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

The downtown area is primarily made up of late 19th and early 20th century commercial buildings. It's also where the office buildings are located. Another focal point would be the government buildings. The primary residential buildings are apartment buildings, which includes the apartments above the commercial space on the ground floor. There are a few houses, but most of the houses in the dowtown area are now on the east and west listings.
I've been in town for a funeral and was going to try and get some pictures, but when I was able to do so its been cloudy. I'll be back next week and I'll try again. I thought I would focus on the west end, although the Putam-Parker Block needs a pic or two. Farragutful (talk) 14:36, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Awesome! That would be great! Ya, I've been trying to get some, but it's been real cloudy the last few weeks. Plus I work 3rd shift, so on the days I work, if the sun is even out, there is maybe 1-1.5 hours of sunlight left by the time I wake up. Thanks for your help! CTJF83 17:47, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Good work on the pics! Did you enjoy your weekend in the lovely QC? CTJF83 02:13, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Of course I had a lovely weekend in the QCs. Like you have to ask. I have a few more pics of houses on West Third that I'll upload today. I wanted to do more, but there wasn't enough time. I have tentative plans to return this summer. I can try and get out then and get whatever is still left, or at least redo my pics that I don't like. Farragutful (talk) 18:24, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I hope to get some myself, and get downtown to FL soon. CTJF83 22:01, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Sioux City, Iowa[edit]

I notice that you've recently made some edits to National Register of Historic Places listings in Woodbury County, Iowa, and created an article about the Badgerow Building and the Warrior Hotel in Sioux City.

If you're planning to work up a set of articles on Sioux City sites, I expect to be up there with my camera within the next month or so (at the request of User:Frankie Rae, who's been working hard to improve our coverage of buildings by William L. Steele). If there are specific buildings that you'd like photographed, please feel free to leave a list at my talk page. If there are particular aspects of buildings that want to be shown, suggestions would be welcome. Ammodramus (talk) 16:50, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Will put the Badgerow Bldg, Warrior Hotel, Augustana Lutheran, and Sioux City Baptist on my to-be-photographed list. If the last is by Steele, you might be well advised to contact Frankie Rae, who seems very well informed about him and might have the information needed to reconcile your conflicting sources. Ammodramus (talk) 17:16, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Seeing I've been invoked, I'm joining this conversation. I've been working on and off on an article about the Steele-designed Prairie School church at 1301 Nebraska. Originally built as the First Congregational Church, later sold to the Sioux City Baptists, and most recently the Iglesia Pentecostes Evangelica Principe de Paz. There's quite a bit of contradictory information about it, and I've been working through it slowly. Was there something in particular you were puzzled by? --Frankie Rae (talk) 03:28, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Will definitely try to hit 1301 Nebraska on my next trek to Sioux City, which I hope will be later this month. Are there any particular features of the building that I should try to shoot?
Incidentally, I've finally posted my photos at Commons:Category:T. S. Martin and Co. department store (Sioux City, Iowa). I still haven't finished editing my pictures of the Woodbury County Courthouse, but I haven't forgotten it. Ammodramus (talk) 05:07, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I've been battling a cold and haven't been online much the last several days. The Badgerow Bldg has a plethora of decorative elements including Indian heads, entryways and the rooftop level. The Warrior Hotel also has a variety of terra cotta decor that would be nice to capture. Augustana Lutheran is a nice church overall, but I'm not sure if there is anything in particular that you need to focus on.Farragutful (talk) 19:08, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

DC pix[edit]

I tried to finish up the DC NRHP photos on Thursday, but didn't get all of them. The Gallinger Hospital should be easy, but I got the wrong building! There's a new listing which I hadn't noticed for a school. The SE 9 boundary marker would require some ropes or maybe mountain-climbing equipment (not to mention the 2 mile one way walk) to get under the I-295 bridge safely, but at least I found a 1907 photo. Consider that one done - or maybe hire a helicopter! I'll be going to get the Carousel early AM on May 4 to get shots without kids in them, and will take care of the odds and ends then. I know that I've put in a few photos under the rule "better some picture than nothing" - if you have anything that you think should be re-taken please note that at Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/unillustrated DC

All the best,

Smallbones (talk) 19:14, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Getting some of the final photos has been on my to-do list, but I've been abnormally busy with work and haven't gotten to it. I also took a picture of the wrong building for the Gallinger Hospital. When I tried to find out which of the buildings in the complex it was I learned that the building has been torn down, although it is still listed on both the DC historic list and the NRHP. I will try and get the Margaret Murray Washington School soon. I know where it's at and I should have time this month. At the same time I might attempt the wilds of SW Washington to get a photo of the last boundary marker. We'll see.Farragutful (talk) 20:08, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks for all the work. It'll be great to get the whole list of photos marked "done", but it certainly will get done in time for Wikimania. I'll advise against SE 9. I went out there Thursday and it's a nice 1+ mile walk in the park, but then gets all overgrown and swampy with fallen down trees (btw I saw signs of beaver habitation). After hacking though the undergrowth, I got a good view of the "underpass" for the bridge - there really isn't one. It's a steep pile of rocks and gravel going from the bridge concrete to the water directly below for maybe 30 yards out to the underpass - then 8 lanes across of the same thing - and presumably another 30 yards of the same on the other side going back to the mainland. Pretty dangerous stuff - it might be safer just parking on the side of the interstate - but I'd never recommend that. So, in short, a 1907 photo seems good enough. (I'll send photos of the "landmarks" if you really don't believe me!)
All the best,
Smallbones (talk) 21:31, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
      • Sounds like there's no reason to go to SW DC. BTW, I'm going to be out of town during Wikimania. Thanks for including me in the info you sent earlier. I'll continue to look up info and write articles on the remaining DC properties. Farragutful (talk) 21:41, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

5pm Thursday May 3 at the National Cathedral[edit]

But 1st you might want to send an encouraging message to User:Ellin Beltz

I don't know if you are still interested, but I'll be meeting with the Spring Flower Show people at the All Hallows Guild Carousel at the above time and place. Please join if you can. Rain date is 9am the following morning, and I may go Friday evening as well to get the carousel in action, with indistinct pictures of kids. I don't like the potential hazards of photographing identifiable kids, so my main thrust will be on the animal figures while the kids aren't there (i.e. Thursday). I also promised you and a couple others dinner - how about that Friday at an old NRHP firehouse in Georgetown, the Vigilant Firehouse (Washington, D.C.)? Smallbones (talk) 15:04, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the invitation. I cannot make it May 3, but I am interested in dinner on the 4th. However, my mom has developed significant health problems so I might go back to Iowa that weekend.

St. John's replica location[edit]

Where is the building Commons:File:St. John's SS 1.jpg? Is it on the grounds of the Georgia Ave. church, the Rosensteel Ave. church, or somewhere else? I was thinking of proposing an article move from St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (Silver Spring, Maryland) to St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (Montgomery County, Maryland) because of the two locations, but if the replica is outside Montgomery County, then it gets a bit complicated (unless there is no other St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Maryland). --Closeapple (talk) 00:56, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

  • I couldn't agree more. Actually, I was kind of surprised last summer by how many were in half-way decent shape. I also realized that another one has been torn down (William Claussen House). Svendsen has a picture in one of her books and none of the ones on that bloock look like it. There's a "newer" house where it should have been with a different address. A house with that address (2215 W. 2nd St.) doesn't exist. I think I got all the ones that are still standing. Farragutful (talk) 02:07, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

metro_archbishop[edit]

Is there some reason you are removing the metro_archbishop field, which lists the metropolitan archbishop of suffragan dioceses? Elizium23 (talk) 00:45, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, archbishops have no direct leadership authority in the suffragan sees and should not be listed as "Leadership" in a suffragan see. They preside at the meetings of the provincial bishops, but primarily function as the diocesan bishop of the archdiocese. The communion of any diocese with the larger church is found between its bishop and the Bishop of Rome. That is why in the Eucharistic Prayer the assembly, by way of the priest, prays for the pope and the diocesan bishop(s) and not the metropolitan, unless of course they are in a metropolitan archdiocese. An archbishop only exercises "authority" in a suffragan see when there is a serious irregularity in the see or when he is elected, or appointed, administrator sede vacante. Even then his authority may be limited given the circumstances. Farragutful (talk) 01:30, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
You have good points. Perhaps that is a discussion for Template talk:Infobox diocese to clarify the field's usage. Elizium23 (talk) 01:45, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
I hadn't thought about that. I don't care for the English "Infobox diocese" to begin with. I prefer the Italian one. Farragutful (talk) 01:51, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
It is probably best to seek wider consensus on a change like this before implementing it all over. The template talk page may be a small audience. You could try WT:CATHOLIC or start an RFC. Elizium23 (talk) 02:04, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Wichita, Kansas), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Glennon (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Image request[edit]

Do you ever get down below Muscatine when you're back in Iowa? I visited the state for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and while I had only a little time, I was able to get photos of a few National Register sites, including all in Louisa County — except one. The County Line Bridge is on a dirt road, and that day was wet enough that I feared getting stuck. If you have a chance when you're next in the area, I'd appreciate it if you could try to get down that way, so that National Register of Historic Places listings in Louisa County, Iowa could be fully illustrated. Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 22:07, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

It's rare that I get below Muscatine these days. That being said, I do know the area and I was thinking at some point I might go down that way. I will only be in Iowa for a weekend this winter so there is no time and I will probably be there next summer. I was planning to go to Clinton County (to the north), however, that could change. Thanks for getting the Louisa County pics. I don't blame you for not going down that road. I don't like them on sunny dry days. I also looked at the map just now and I noticed the bridge is further south than what the coordinates they give show. I'll change it. Farragutful (talk) 23:44, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Montage[edit]

Nice job on the montages! Are you going to make one for the QC page, and any buildings you want pics of for Bettendorf or East Moline? CTF83! 22:54, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I was thinking I would make one for the QCs. The Bettendorf pics were horrible. I'm going to be in town at the end of the month and thought I might look around then. I was going to re-shoot my pics of the convention center and I was thinking that Duck Creek at Devils Glen is nice. I was also considering the I-74 Bridge from Moline looking toward downtown Bettendorf. If you want to take some of these pics now, or any others you can think of, I would certainly use them. I'm less familiar with East Moline than the others, so whatever you think represents the city would certainly help. I hope all is well.Farragutful (talk) 23:04, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
EM is definitely my least familiar, but I'll see what I can come up with. CTF83! 01:20, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Good work on Bettendorf! You fixed my slacking of taking a I-74 pic! :) CTF83! 10:11, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Not a problem. I was in town in late April so I drove around and found a couple of places to photograph. I'll try to do the same next month in East Moline, but to be honest I'm not sure what that could be. Farragutful (talk) 13:10, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Two edit-a-thons coming up![edit]

Hello there!

I'm pleased to tell you about two upcoming edit-a-thons:

  • This Tuesday, April 29, from 2:30 to 5:30 PM, we have the Freer and Sackler edit-a-thon. (Sorry for the short notice!)
  • On Saturday, May 10 we have the Wikipedia APA edit-a-thon, in partnership with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, from 10 AM to 5 PM.

We have more stuff coming up in May and June, so make sure to keep a watch on the DC meetup page. As always, if you have any recommendations or requests, please leave a note on the talk page.

Wikipedia and YOUR History: Taking Control of the Internet[edit]

See you at the Laurel Pool Room, 9th and Main Street, Laurel, MD on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 7:00 PM EST. See http://www.meetup.com/Wikimedia-DC/events/205494212/ for more information. Geraldshields11 (talk) 02:13, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC

Photos of US Cathedrals[edit]

You the Man!! You took my little project of adding photos of Archdioceses/Dioceses and made it grow. Hopefully we will get them all. Is there anybody out there in Kansas listening? Roberto221 (talk) 04:58, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. My project was to get articles written for all the cathedrals and then get photos. I got three photos this year by asking people in those areas if they could take them. The guy who took the Youngstown photo travels so I'm hoping the rest in that general area are taken care of now. Kansas, as you say, is the question. I haven't been there in a long time and I have no plans to go there any time soon. I'll keep at it though. Farragutful (talk) 12:12, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Roswell Spencer House[edit]

Sorry about that. I was looking through the new photos on Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/Unused images, and I forgot to check that your photo was actually new and not a removal. I removed the NRHP refnum template from the photo so it won't happen again. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 23:23, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

St. Raphael/St. Patrick in Madison, Wisconsin[edit]

From what I understand, St. Raphael is now demolished and St. Patrick is now the Pro Cathedral for Madison until the new St. Raphael is constructed. But there isn't a lot of info for St. Patrick on their wiki page. I wanted to change the "List of the Catholic cathedrals of the United States" page to reflect this.

http://www.gcatholic.org/churches/northamerica/5480.htm

Roberto221 (talk) 08:17, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm skeptical of the GCatholic information. The Madison situation has always been unclear to me. I know that St. Raphael's was taken down some time ago and a "Cathedral Parish" with the two remaining downtown churches was established. Parish-wise I understand the situation, but not cathedral-wise. Only one church gets the chair unless there are co-cathedrals, and every Catholic diocese is supposed to have a cathedral church with a cathedra. The Diocese of Madison website is most unhelpful unless one wants to make a donation. The parish website does not designate either church a pro-cathedral, in fact it lists them as Holy Redeemer Church and St. Patrick Church. The parish offices are located at St. Patrick's, but that doesn't make it the pro-cathedral per se. If I read it correctly the new cathedral, which will be located on the site of the former cathedral, will be be named St. Raphael's. The cathedral fire was ten years ago this month and there does not appear to be any noticeable movement toward building a new cathedral, which I find strange, if not curious. I also googled "st. patrick pro-cathedral madison wi" and got nothing but St. Patrick's Church in Madison and St. Raphael's Cathedral. Personally, I would do nothing at this time unless you have information that I could not find. If not, you could contact the parish or the diocese to see what they say. They should know, but then again they may be just as confused. I worked for the Church long enough to know that that's a distinct possibility. Farragutful (talk) 14:10, 6 March 2015 (UTC)


That's the same way I felt when I researched it, confusing and unclear which is why I contacted you to see if you had any insight.

Roberto221 (talk) 14:12, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

I think I would leave it alone for the time being. If the diocese makes a move in one direction or another then you can adjust the pages accordingly. Farragutful (talk) 22:36, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Redirects[edit]

Why are you redirecting historical building pages? CTF83! 20:29, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Le Claire is misspelled in the titles. Farragutful (talk) 20:30, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
LOL, good call. Sorry, I shoulda known it wasn't for a bad reason. CTF83! 20:32, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
I found the NRHP nomination forms/photos six months ago so I'm rewriting all the pages in Scott County as I have time. I thought I'd make other corrections as well. There were only five incorrect photos. I'll be there in two weeks and I'm planning to retake them, although I suspect the Spencer House in PV has been torn down. Farragutful (talk) 20:43, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of county courthouses in Iowa, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hardin County Courthouse (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

New COA for Bishop Sis, San Angelo, Texas[edit]

I just received a file from the web master at San Angelo to upload a new file for Bishop Sis' new COA. The one on his wiki page is a .svg file which I can't upload cause none of my editing tools has capabilities to do .svg. It arrived as an Adobe document. Can you help me?

Roberto221 (talk) 22:17, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I wish I could. I downloaded a program a year or so ago to do .svg images, but I didn't have much success. I also didn't stick with it as much as I should. Farragutful (talk) 00:49, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

New Cathedral pics[edit]

Over the weekend, I emailed the Dioceses whose pictures that are missing from the Wiki pages and I got responses from 4 of them: Basilica of the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart - Charleston, WV, Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help - Rapid City, SD, Cathedral of the Holy Spirit - Bismarck, ND, Sacred Heart Cathedral - Salina, KS.

Unlike my previous edits and uploads, I wasn't aware of the copyright issues involved or the procedures with images. Hopefully I can get them resolved. Roberto221 (talk) 00:18, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Good work. I've never gotten an image that way, but I thought all that was needed was an email from, in this case the diocese, with permission to use the image that has to be turned in to Wikimedia. I guess there's more to it. I've worked with copyrights in the past and I know they have to be on top of the issue. I'm going to be in Orlando for a couple of days in August and I should be able to get St. James. It's possible that I could get to Joliet in July, but it's not for sure. I'm also going to be in Honolulu in January and I plan to get the co-cathedral then. Those are the only places I plan to be in where there are no photos. Farragutful (talk) 01:04, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

OTRS[edit]

After I upload the image, where do I place the 'subst:OP' template, on the talk page? Roberto221 (talk) 21:37, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Place the 'subst:OP' template below the "Information" template on the regular "File" page (the one with the photo on it) and above the 'int:license-header' (Licensing).Farragutful (talk) 23:31, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Sui iuris Churches[edit]

Can I ask why you have started to remove sui iuris Church names from the Cathedral infoboxes? I disagree with your changes. It reduces the information conveyed in this space. Please seek WP:CONSENSUS before continuing. Elizium23 (talk) 22:37, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

The infoboxes for churches are color coded. The Catholic Church is that ugly, pale, whatever color that is, not olive green. They should all reflect their inclusion in the Catholic Church, not their exclusion as "Uniates." Some of the sui iuris churches are included already, i.e. the Maronites for example, but most are not. I stopped changing them and decided instead to request the infobox be changed to include all of the churches. Farragutful (talk) 22:59, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
I see. I agree completely. Thank you very much. Elizium23 (talk) 23:21, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Co-Cathedral Our Lady of Guadalupe - Anchorage, AK[edit]

I just read about this tonight. I'll see about getting an image. Roberto221 (talk) 04:45, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

I had not seen this, but it appears to be true. Good work. Farragutful (talk) 12:53, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Oakdale Memorial Gardens[edit]

Hi there. I was just wondering if you had happened across this article about Oakdale's NRHP listing: Beyond the grave: Honoring our Quad City cemetery history

I thought you might find it interesting. Dustin C. Oliver (talk) 04:58, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I did. I added a little more to the Oakdale article and referenced it. It was a good article. Farragutful (talk) 14:52, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Greetings. I just wanted to let you know that a PDF of the full NRHP nomination has been posted on the Register's website: Oakdale Cemetery Historic District Dustin C. Oliver (talk) 04:10, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
Wow, that was quick. It has been taking them longer to upload them. I'll have to check out your good work. Thanks for letting me know. Farragutful (talk) 04:44, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
I did nudge them a bit by way of a message to the NRHP Facebook page. Dustin C. Oliver (talk) 05:46, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Oakdale was designated a local landmark on the Davenport Register of Historic Properties in November. I just now got around to adding that info to the Oakdale article. I got tired of waiting for the Historic Preservation Commission to update the official list, so I referenced the council minutes for the designation. Dustin C. Oliver (talk) 06:15, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

I didn't see any mention of that in the Times, but I don't monitor the Register as closely as I could either--not that it would make any difference. The city is very slow at updating the official list, and why that is I cannot tell you. I'm sure its not a priority, but how much time could it take? Thanks for all your work. Farragutful (talk) 12:51, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

New Project[edit]

I added the Coat of Arms of the current Archbishops/Bishops to the "List of Catholic bishops of the United States" wiki page. I'm helping User:SajoR out with collecting the rest. Roberto221 (talk) 05:46, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Re: Catholic Lists[edit]

You mean like what I've done to other pages(just to name a few):

  • "List of Major League Baseball stadiums"
  • "List of NCAA Division I basketball arenas"
  • "List of National Hockey League arenas"
  • "List of college bowl games"

Roberto221 (talk) 15:39, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes, exactly. I think its a cleaner and a more user friendly page. Farragutful (talk) 17:13, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Lists[edit]

I've done that for about 10 different pages throughout the years, and I agree, it does look cleaner in addition to the pages being shorter. We can come up with a plan on what data to include, what to make sortable(images don't sort). With some editing, the tables can be transferred from one page to another easily. Roberto221 (talk) 21:40, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Edward C. Malesic, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Diocese of Harrisburg (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Deleting Cathedral pics[edit]

There's a user/editor who's deleting Cathedral pics from the pages. So far he's deleted "Saint John the Baptist Cathedral - Fresno" and "Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help - Rapid City, SD". He goes by the name "User:Natuur12". I've saved the OTRS ticket #'s from the other pics I've uploaded for reference. You encountered any problems like this before? Roberto221 (talk) 21:54, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

I noticed earlier this week that there was a notice on those two photos that the OTRS info was incomplete and the ticket could not be issued. I assumed you had been informed seeing as you uploaded the photos. That is usually how it is done. It seems you didn't know about it and I now wish I would have said something to you. I note from Natuur12's user page that he/she is on the OTRS team. You might contact him/her to see what the problem was. You might have to resubmit the photo and the info you have. This particular thing has never happened to me, but other problems have occurred and they can be irritating. I doubt it was malicious. My guess is there was an oversight or mistake on someone's part somewhere along the line. Farragutful (talk) 22:29, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Cathedral pics[edit]

Any new pics? I'm about to send a second round of emails to the dioceses/cathedrals. Roberto221 (talk) 17:48, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Last month I was able to get the cathedrals in Joliet, Orlando and Harrisburg (odd travel month). I found people to get the cathedrals in Allentown and Kansas City, Kansas. I'm going to be in New Jersey next week and I hope to get better photos of the Latin Rite cathedrals in Camden and Paterson, as well as the Byzantine Rite cathedral in Passaic. I'm also going to try and get the pro-cathedral in Camden, but I'm not certain they use it much for cathedral purposes. The only other plans I have is to be in Honolulu in January. Even though that's several months from now I have carved out some time to go to the co-cathedral, so if you don't hear from them now a photo will be forthcoming. I might get to Raleigh in October to get a better photo of Sacred Heart, and if possible, the construction of their new cathedral. Those are all I'm aware of at this time. Farragutful (talk) 18:53, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good. I'll send out the emails after Labor Day. Roberto221 (talk) 20:50, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

PS - If your travels take you to Connecticut, we need to replace Cathedral of Saint Patrick, in Norwich, which is a photo of a post card. You should see what it looks like on Bing maps, it doesn't do it justice. Just saying... Roberto221 (talk) 20:58, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

I agree. Unfortunately I have no plans to be in Connecticut any time soon. Having said that, you never know where I might end up. Farragutful (talk) 00:27, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Cathedral Pics II[edit]

I've been thinking about this for quite a while and I'm also going to email some of the dioceses/cathedrals to see if I can get better pics of their cathedrals. I've used the "Bird's eye" view on Bing maps and a better pic can be taken...

  • Charlotte, NC - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral
  • Wilmington, DE - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral
  • Belleville, IL - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral, shows only the spire and clock
  • Springfield, IL - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral
  • Lansing, MI - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral
  • Bridgeport, CT - traffic light and power lines in the shot
  • Green Bay, WI - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral
  • La Crosse, WI - it's the back of the cathedral
  • Jackson, MS - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral
  • Altoona, PA - power lines in the shot, it's not the front of the cathedral but the side taken from a rooftop
  • Greensburg, PA - it's a side shot with a tent in the middle of the pic
  • Kansas City, MO - it's a rear, side shot
  • Dallas, TX - traffic light
  • San Francisco, CA - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral, it's a rear, side shot of the spire
  • Yakima, WA - doesn't show the whole front of the cathedral

Also, there are some twilight shots of Nashville and San Jose on their page which look better than what's out there now. I've been thinking about changing them. Look and tell me what you think. Roberto221 (talk) 20:39, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Personally, I think I would hold off for the most part. The Dallas cathedral has 24 photos and most of them show the whole building from a variety of vantage points. That's hardly a lack of choices, and there is one that does not have a traffic light in it. The problem with that building is that it is downtown and downtowns have traffic lights, street lights, signs, parked cars, traffic and pedestrians. It also has an impossibly tall tower and spire in comparison to the rest of the building. The San Francisco cathedral sits above the street elevation and is fronted by a plaza. One of its seven exterior photos shows this perspective, but then you don't see the cross on top. The Bridgeport cathedral would have power lines running in front of it regardless. The front yard does not appear to be long enough for a better perspective without the power lines. It would be difficult to get a photo of the Charlotte cathedral with its tower and not include power lines. It also sits above the street level so this photo is probably as good as it gets. Trees and power lines would obscure the Lansing cathedral. The Wilmington cathedral has multiple issues. It is located in the oldest part of the city. On the east coast that means the streets are very narrow and the power lines front the street. Should one stand across the street a couple of trees and the power lines will block/pass in front of the cathedral. Because the street is narrow and the building across the street is on the sidewalk with little or no yard in front the perspective may be no better. The poles that hold up the power lines are also placed in such a way that it makes a decent ¾ shot tricky. It's also a small structure so these obstructions cover a wider range of space than a larger building would. When I got to the Peoria cathedral last year there was construction equipment in front, so I did the best I could as it was the only day I had time to get the photos. It's hard to get a decent photo of some of these places and for the most part they are taken by amateurs like myself. We don't necessarily have the best equipment and little training.
Others would be easier to get a better photo such as the Springfield, IL, but that's not a bad photo. It appears the location of the sun was the reason that particular vantage point was chosen. The only one I would suggest getting a photo of would be Belleville. It's a beautiful building and a photo of the spire doesn't do it justice. It's also not a photo of the building, but a small part of it. You could also contact the guy who got the Kansas City, Kansas cathedral to get a good shot of the front of the KC, MO cathedral. I noticed he was uploading photos of KC buildings on the National Register and he took the photos the same day I made the request. He was very happy to do it, and would probably be willing to get photos of Immaculate Conception. Another guy recently took photos of the Green Bay cathedral, including one of the exterior that looks to have been taken with a drone. You might contact him to see if he would be willing to take others from the ground. Farragutful (talk) 23:29, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

List of the Catholic dioceses of the United States[edit]

I see where they commented out the Diocese COA's on the diocese page whereas on the "List of Catholic bishops of the United States" they totally deleted them. I tried to get an explanation from the editor(User talk:Hammersoft, the query is at the bottom of his talk page) but he wasn't budging. Next time, I'll know better on uploading.

On another note, got your tickets to see the Pope? My church is selling a $50 bus ride to Philly, I don't know if that includes tickets to the Mass. If it's televised, I'll watch it, otherwise there no way I'm going downtown. Metro will be jammed packed and so will the streets around the Ellipse. Roberto221 (talk) 20:05, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

"Hammersoft" is correct. Copyrighted images may be uploaded to English Wikipedia, but their use is limited to the page the logo/coat of arms represents. The self-made coat of arms are not 100% accurate. If you look at them closely, the symbols are similar to those used in the official coat of arms, but they're no the same. The colors are also somewhat off.
Personally, I wouldn't go near Philly. I have a feeling it will put those with the best patience to the test. I would think his major events will all be televised. I have a ticket to the capitol (outside) and I'm going to go even though I may not see him very well. I'll bring my camera and hope for the best. I was at Obama's second Inauguration (I have a connection at the capitol) and hopefully it will be similar. I had no trouble with Metro. I walked from the capitol to the Navy Yard station and rode the train through downtown and back out to Maryland. I'll try that again. Farragutful (talk) 03:05, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Catholic-Hierarchy.org[edit]

Hello. I noticed that you have edited a number of articles on Catholicism. A discussion is taking place as to whether the website Catholic-Hierarchy.org is a reliable source that can be utilized on Wikipedia or whether all references and information derived from it should be deleted. This topic is currently being discussed at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard [3]. As the website's removal as a reference will affect several thousand Wikipedia articles, I believe that the broadest range of opinions should be obtained before action is taken.

Diocese/Cathedrals[edit]

When I do the restore for the diocese page, I'll probably take out the sections which have pictures for Archdioceses, Dioceses and Former Dioceses(Gallery of Archdioceses, Gallery of Dioceses, Gallery of Former Sees) since we already have the pictures on the Cathedrals wiki page. I'll probably make tables for the Eastern Catholic dioceses. That way it truly will be a list of dioceses as well. Tell me what you think. Roberto221 (talk) 21:27, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

I think that is the best solution. It simplifies everything, and limits the information on both pages to the topic at hand. That way it doesn't confuse anyone, or lead to the accusation of duplication. Farragutful (talk) 15:08, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Van Buren County, Iowa NRHPs[edit]

I notice you've done great work completing out National Register of Historic Places listings in Van Buren County, Iowa. I received notices of some of the activity because I had created the Bentonsport article, which I have updated a bit now. I hope you don't mind my editing in Burg Wagon Works Building and the others preceding alphabetically, mostly to add the associated photos links and to add the date of NRHP document preparation. I adapted your use of the {{NRHP url}} template to make the photo links. I have no problem if you want to drop or change any of that. In particular my use of title phrases like "12 photos from 1977" for the photo links is subjective, and I'd be glad to receive any feedback about that. By the way I have noticed your creating articles in many other areas over the last couple years, but I have only just now sought and got relaxation of my NRHP topic ban. regards, --doncram 04:36, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

@Doncram: Your edits are most welcome. To be honest, I just started using the new templates and didn't realize there was a photo component to it. Thanks for the heads up. I'll starting using it going forward. I think your title phrase is fine. It gives a context for the photos that are being linked. I've spent the last several months trying to get Iowa NRHP articles started with at least a short paragraph, and expanding the ones that had only a sentence or two. I've also been creating a navbox for each county. Little by little I've been making some progress. Farragutful (talk) 12:21, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Error in your File[edit]

I just noticed something in your "File:Ecclesiastical Province of Washington map.png". The Eastern Shore is part of the Diocese of Wilmington and not the Archdiocese of Baltimore. On another note, I'm getting closer to having all the images of the cathedrals.. Take care Roberto221 (talk) 21:09, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

On second thought, I just had a brain fart. Forgot that province encompasses the whole area...

@Roberto221:Well now, that's the story of my life.
I've seen that you were able to get several more photos. I'm currently in Florida, but I'm not near any of the cathedrals needed down here. I have plans to get several cathedral photos this summer, most of which we have but I thought I might try and get better ones. So, I'm hoping to get Altoona, Johnstown, Wilmington, and Paterson. I might try and get St. Petersburg as well. Paterson had scaffolding around it last year when I was there so hopefully it will be down by September. The new ones I hope to get are Venice in August, and the Anglican Catholic cathedral in Houston and Syriac cathedral in Bayonne, NJ in September. Farragutful (talk) 01:26, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Ericson Public Library and nrhp articles[edit]

Pic in article

Hi Farragutful, after a long time out, I'm back editing in the NRHP area. Thank you for your recently creating Ericson Public Library article! Its existence just allowed me to create C.J.A. Ericson article, using some text from yours, completing out some connections from the George E. Hallett architect article, drawing on another NRHP document (for the Julius Scheibe Cottage in Des Moines).

Hey, one thing you may not know: the NRHP documents' associated photos can be included in the new format of reference using the {{NRHP url}} template, as in this adapted version of your reference:
<ref name=Klingensmith>{{cite web|url={{NRHP url|id=83000344}}|title=Iowa State Historical Department's Iowa Site Inventory: Ericson Public Library |publisher=[[National Park Service]]|accessdate=2016-06-27|author=S. Klingensmith |date=August 1980}} with {{NRHP url|id=83000344|photos=y|title=photo from 1979}}</ref>
If it was a regular NRHP document, the title I would have used would have been "National Register of Historic Places Registration: Ericson Public Library". How to title the document and the linked photo(s) can vary, this is an example of how I do it. But I think it adds good value to include the date of preparation and especially to include the photos, which readers and potential editors coming from the local area of the NRHP place will not know how to find.

About Iowa NRHPs, I am working through this list of 67 Iowa NRHP articles that have been tagged "NRIS-only" since November 2013. It includes at least a couple that you started (two bridge articles are indicated). I am motivated to expand all of them, particularly the 10-15 that were started by me, using the NRHP documents that are now available for all or almost all of them. I used AWB to put a draft reference into each of these, which caused the NRIS-only tag to go away temporarily, but I'll remove the ref in a couple weeks for any that don't get expanded (and more promptly if I find any of the references don't link through properly to available documents). It would be great if you cared to join me in this push, and feel free to update status about articles there. Whether you can or not, again thank you for that article and other Iowa NRHP stuff you have been doing. Cheers, --doncram 23:05, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

@Doncram: Yes, we discussed the inclusion of the NRHP photo(s) in the reference last month. It's in the "Van Buren County, Iowa NRHPs" above. The Ericson Public Library article may not have the updated reference, but it was created either before I knew of it or before it was created. I have not gone back and updated all the old references, nor do I intend to do that. I'm trying to get as many Iowa articles started as possible. I'm not going back with any consistency and re-editing articles unless I know I need to do so. Farragutful (talk) 01:13, 28 June 2016 (UTC
Oops, sorry, duh on me about that. I remembered messaging but thought it was someone else, sorry. BTW I am thinking Awb may work to look for all articles in Iowa, say, that have nrhp doc but not the photos link, relatively easily, though I haven't tried it so I am not sure yet. --doncram 05:19, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
@Doncram: I know about Awb, but that's it, nothing more. I've never taken the time to really look into it. I probably should, but... Farragutful (talk) 16:35, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I didn't mean to imply that you should learn to use AWB, if I did. What we do as volunteers can and should vary. But, if there is a repetitive task you need done a dozen times or more, like what a bot might do if there are thousands of repetitions needed, maybe an AWB editor can do it for you efficiently. And, I just applied AWB to the task of adding photo links where missing, for articles directly linked from List of RHPs in IA (so including smaller counties but not big ones split out from it), and it seems to have worked great! It found 32 cases, and the edits show in my edit history from this diff (on Albright Bridge which you created in February) onward. I just added the phrase " with {{NRHP url|id=|photos=y|title=photos}}", but where I manually entered the applicable id number, to each one. I suppose they all should be checked to confirm that there really is a photos document available, and the "with photos" could be customized to "with seven photos from 1979" or the like, and one can consider whether the content of the photos adds what you want to say in the article. (Like in this diff editing the last one of the 32.) Would you be interested/willing to help to do that? You could work forwards and I could work backwards from the end through the 32 contributions, say. (No problem if you don't care to, in fact this is my doing so I should finish it out, unless you happen to want to do some.) If we confirm this works out well, then we could do the rest of Iowa NRHPs in another batch or two later. This is a whole lot faster than "keeping an eye out for" cases or than explicitly trying to find cases where the pics link can be added, by any other way. :)

(Note to self: I applied AWB

  • to source="links on page (only bluelinks)"
  • links on=National Register of Historic Places listings in Iowa
  • with edit summary set (on Start tab) to "add photos link to NRHP reference"
  • to pages except where (on Skip tab) Text contains "photos=y", and except where Text doesn't contain "NRHP url" (i.e. finds pages where "NRHP url" appears but not "photos=y")

then ran it from the Start tab, choosing for each page presented either to edit it and hit Save, or to Skip it. The search found cases where just an MPS document is linked and no photos could be added, and it found cases on some of the pages named "National Register of Historic Places listings in ..." but those can easily be skipped over when they come up. It took 23 minutes to do the 31 after the first one. Applying it to source on an Iowa NRHPs category with recursion through as many levels as necessary would probably work to find all the other cases in bigger, split-out counties. )

I am proud of myself, at least for the moment. :) --doncram 16:04, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Not sure if this is crossing into strange territory, but AWB can also be applied to search within a user's contributions, it turns out. Since I have it running, I just tested it on yours, and it finds some list of Catholic churches, and then Bellefountain Bridge and St. Patrick's Church-Garryowen, as the pages where you most recently edited where the criteria are met. I did not make edits at those pages. Let me know if you'd like me to run AWB to find a batch of these and insert photo links into them. --doncram 17:09, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
@Doncram: I have no objections to your running AWB on my contributions and adding in the photo links when needed. You can also clean up the inevitable typos and other boneheaded mistakes I make while you're at it! I do know there are several mistakes with the official NRHP listings for Davenport. There are some properties from the 1980s that have no photos associated with them because they ended up in the McClellan Heights Historic District. Its as though someone dropped file folders once-upon-a-time and didn't do a very good job of sorting things out. Its the only egregious example of that sort that I know of, but it might be in others as well. I wasn't sure how far back you were going to take this, and I don't care, but I did start most of the articles in Scott County/Davenport several years ago. Farragutful (talk) 17:24, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Hey I have skeletons too, and I personally think it's best to get articles started with some info and links to the good NRHP documents, and I think you've done great serving Iowa and other readers. I don't want to zero in on your contributions; I am mainly working on ones I started, not because I own them but because they've been a focus of others' attention. It's just that if you want to revisit any number of your past articles (besides any in the 32 I am already doing) at the same time as working in the useful photo links, I would help get you started by finding the articles and laying in the photos links, without myself checking them and revising the articles accordingly. My deliverable to you would be only the list of articles identified in my contribution history while running AWB for you (in one session, with some indicator in the edit summary for each one). Only if you wanted and were ready to go through them after I did the easy work. I'm not even saying you should do this, and I gather you'd prefer to work forward on new topics instead, which is fine. So let's just let this drop. It was interesting for me to figure out how to use AWB again, and I will apply it in my own editing going forward. Thanks. --doncram 18:21, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Thanks for creating Greater Second Street Historic District just recently, and linking to it from J.W. Garner Building. I just arrived at latter, trying to fix it up, and found that the NRHP doc for it is not available, but at least I could add refs you developed. I tinkered with Benson Block and Benson Building (Ottumwa, Iowa), too, getting them to display one more parameter in the infobox (to show CP added date i think it was). I learned about "indcp" and perhaps some other stuff from seeing how you did it the infobox stuff in one of them. It's nice to have some collaboration going on! thanks again, --doncram 03:20, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

@Doncram: Here's my rambling reply. (Sorry in advance. My train of thought sometimes...) NRHP docs from 2010 on are generally not available, but I just came across one that has been posted from 2012: Central Vinton Residential Historic District. They do provide the nomination forms, but not the photo cache, for many properties in this time frame in feature articles. I've found success googling the property name. (The NRHP website and I have a love-hate relationship, so I generally don't use their search function.) The new format for the reference on Wikipedia doesn't work for them, however. I tried to get some information for the J.W. Garner Building, but couldn't find anything when I created the Greater Second Street Historic District article. The City of Ottumwa also has an online resource that I've used for some of the NRHP properties in the city, but the Garner Building isn't in it either. Glad I could introduce you to "indcp". I forget where I picked it up, but probably from seeing how someone else did it. Farragutful (talk) 12:48, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

New Page[edit]

Let me know what you think. Edit if you like..

Roberto221 (talk) 09:11, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

@Roberto221: It looks good overall. I just found photos of the Jackson, Mississippi cathedral, so I added it. One question, Why are cathedrals included from other countries, i.e. Hati, and those in South America? Isn't this a list US cathedrals? I realize they are part of the US Episcopal Church, but they are not in the US. The Catholic list has the same problem with South Pacific cathedrals. The Caroline Islands and the Marshall Islands are foreign jurisdictions. Although they are part of the Agaña Province, they are not in the United States by extension. I'm not questioning the US Territories: Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands. I'm only questioning the inclusion of foreign countries in the lists of cathedrals in the United States. Farragutful (talk) 02:41, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
I don't understand it either but if you look at the page Episcopal Church (United States) and the Episcopal web site, http://www.episcopalchurch.org/find-a-church/browse/province they're included as part of the US. I could have left them out but since the web site recognizes them as part of the US, I put them in.. Roberto221 (talk) 03:21, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
@Roberto221: No, it does not recognize them as part of the United States. Anglicanism is different than Catholicism. For example, the Church of England is a different church than the US Episcopal Church, but they are in communion with each other. The Catholic Church in England and the Catholic Church in the US are the same church. The Archbishop of Canterbury is not like the Pope. He has no jurisdiction in the US Episcopal Church, but only in the Church of England. It's a whole different church polity. Latin America is part of the Episcopal Church of the United States, which makes them part of the same church, but they are not part of the United States. Just as you wouldn't list Latin American Catholic cathedrals with US Catholic Cathedrals, you shouldn't list Latin American Episcopal cathedrals with US Episcopal cathedrals. They are in the same church, but in different countries. Farragutful (talk) 04:37, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
I thought about it after your first message, and what I'll probably end it doing is make a separate section or taking them out completely. I'm working now the Bishops page, and that's a job onto itself since it appears there's nobody updating the wiki pages, so I have to got to the web sites(all 99) just to get the info. I just hoping the web sites are updated more frequently... Roberto221 (talk) 05:06, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
@Roberto221: I would take them out completely if you're going to leave it as a list of US cathedrals. However, if you want to make it a list of cathedrals of the Episcopal Church of the United States, then leave them in, but change the focus of the list to the church rather than the country. The difficulty with the later is that the Episcopal Church of the United States is larger than the United States. It's confusing if you don't understand the polity, and many people do not. We only know of it as the Episcopal Church, but there is also an Episcopal Church of Scotland - a different Church in the Anglican Communion - as well as others.
There are not very many people doing work in the Episcopal Church on Wikipedia. It seems to be more diocesan based rather than Church based. Some dioceses are well developed while others have little to nothing. You can see that especially in the bishops pages, or lack there of. There are also fewer resources.
