Charles will be teaching subjects from his HTML classes.

Judy suggests every training session start with beginner information.

Danielle announced the Project meetings and training on Wednesday at 11 AM MST, beginning March 18, 2015. # 0000

Lise suggests that those pages that have blocks of text explaining what should be added have that text removed. Danielle indicates that those pages are templates. Lise suggests a single link at the bottom of the page. Lise just moved to bottom of the page. Would love for us to have a training for Family History Centers/Centres. Lise indicates that our language is intimidating, i.e. they really screwed this page. Explain the advantage of having a Wiki page for their Family History Centers/Centres.

Judy suggests we email the FHC

Danielle has had contact with Lise McBride and can share the information of this meeting with her. Lise is developing the training. The template for FHC belongs to Lise's group so we should not do a global change. Danielle will talk to Lise about it.
