Maintenance report - Sandra

Started a committee working on categories (5) Training has been done and a google doc has been created so that progress can be followed.  There are plans for future training.  We will be contacting people who haven't put categories on their pages and ask them to add the categories.  We need a template that we can put on their Talk pages to remind them.  

Blogs to follow, etc. - Lee -

Wiki Project

Ideas for unconferencing sessions at Rootstech:

  • The value of the Wiki - how do we get the word out?
  • Present some case studies - show people how they can have success using the Wiki
  • Invite historical societies, etc. before the event - to come to a session - breakfast meeting with pastries, drinks - Diane Loosli would be the one to contact. (Jane will contact her). and ask her about So. Davis Family History Conference
  • Then we would need to know who is coming so that we could invite them. 
  • Invite bloggers
  • FamilyHistory conference in April in Bountiful (So. Davis Family History Conferenct) - will FamilySearch have a rep there?  James Tanner?
