Important-1.svg Notice- Info pages have served Familypedia well for the past two years but are being phased out and upgraded to a new format which makes articles easier to create and maintain through form editing. They also allow significantly more powerful features not possible with info pages. Feel free to continue to use info pages if you are familiar with them, but everyone is encouraged to try the new Person form for entering or editing articles. Old info articles will be automatically upgrade via bot sometime in the future when the community decides. For questions, and comments, please post at Forum:Switchover to Showfacts articles. ~ Phlox 2009-09-27
