William Milward (actor)[edit]

Your best starting point is likely to be A biographical dictionary of actors, actresses, musicians, dancers, managers and other stage personnel in London, 1660-1800, Volume 10. ISBN 9780809311309. See Help:Sandbox for more on where to put the new article while you're working on it (and apologies for stumbling into it by accident). Good luck. --Old Moonraker (talk) 17:44, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

As requested. Let me know if it doesn't work. --Old Moonraker (talk) 16:50, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Page 260 is not available because this is a preview. That page has much of the information about Milward that I need. Do you know any way of finding a Wikipedian who has a complete copy of this book? Robert 15:05, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Pity. There are just over three pages with, as you say, most of what you would need. --Old Moonraker (talk) 16:15, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
I've just checked the Google Book Search page again: there's a blue link at the top left of the page 260 preview, which gives the whole article. --Old Moonraker (talk) 06:23, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm SummerPhD. I noticed that you made a change to an article, The Sneetches and Other Stories, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Help readers to find your articles[edit]

Hallo, If you create an article like The Last Command (short story), don't forget that you need to make it possible for a reader to find it. In this case it needed an entry on the disambiguation page at The Last Command (which I've now added); sometimes it needs a "hatnote" on an article, if there isnt a disambiguation page; sometimes it's a matter of creating the disambiguation page.
