I recently saw a sidebar mentioning a book about a Dean family farm of 40 acres. Can you direct me to that book?

I join Wiki two days ago. While stumbling through the site I saw a sidebar mentioning a book/story about a "large" Dean family farm of 40 acres. I don't seem to be able to find that sidebar again. Can someone direct me to that book please?

Mike, welcome to G2G!

I'm afraid the book you saw is really just an example meant to illustrate proper wikitext formatting. On the Edit page of each profile, the example book is shown using that profile's surname. I'm sorry this led you to look for the mythical Dean family book!

is there a Dean profile where you could use a hand finding new sources? There are so many generous and knowledgeable researchers here!

Hi Mike, I think what you are referring to is the side bar on the edit page of your profile.  This is not really a book.  It is there as a "how to example".  Pull up any profile on your watch list, then select edit, scroll down to the Bio section and you should see it just above the sources and citations.

Glad you joined Wiki.
