Questions and concerns about the template[edit | edit source]

The template creates these categories:

  • FamilySearch Historical Records Published Collections
  • FamilySearch Historical Records Scheduled Collections
  • FamilySearch Historical Records
  • FamilySearch Historical Records
  • WikiProject FamilySearch Historical Records templates

Questions for the Wiki Team[edit | edit source]

  1. Should we create new categories other than FSHR for these collections?
  2. Are some of the parameters in the infobox unnecessary?

Questions for Robert Kehrer[edit | edit source]

  1. Does the template need to support multiple collections (CIDs) in a single article?
  2. Each of these collections have a unique URL, but do not use a CID the way the HR collections do. Is that an issue?
  3. Does the template need to support and display a locality the way other HR Infoboxes do?
  4. See The Collections section for another question

Disclaimer[edit | edit source]

Since the other HR Infobox templates use a CID to link to collections, but the genealogies don't have CIDs, this template needs to be modified to accommodate whatever type of redirection to the collection Robert Kehrer's group would employ. Ergo, the collection link in this page looks real, but it goes to a page with a 404 error.

The Collections[edit | edit source]

  • The link to the current landing page is named Genealogies
  • The page title displayed in the browser tab is Free Family Trees
  • The Heading on the page is Search Genealogies

What's it called?

Location[edit | edit source]

Collections using this template should have the location parameter specified as "Global"

Template Parameters[edit | edit source]

Some of these will probably be removed before this goes live 'cuz they don't apply to these collections.
