Anyone new to this meeting?

Meeting Participants:

News and Events

  • 1940 Census Help UGA's project with FamilySearch Indexing.
  • There is a new subforum for Wiki Projects. Do we want to use it? If so, ideas for what to include?
  • Some people may discover through the forums. another place to check, to keep up with. Has to monitor it, etc. Can we identify that forum, and tell them to go to the project page. Just one or two threads that redirects them. Things they can do. The forums may not be getting much traffic. Frustrating to use. Perhaps post a thread or two -- mostly to redirect people.
