Review of last meeting

Progress reports

  • Funeral home records - Lois Fowles is starting to input funeral homes on the county pages from one of the directories. (She was looking for work, so I gave her a big task that did not need a lot of explaining.) She will link to their web site and cite the reference to the directory.
  • Neighboring counties - Joy Bogar is updating the images and centering the blurb to the right of them. Starting to look really good.
  • James did modifying of How to Find Birth Information in the United States, based on comments from our meeting.

From last week:

  • Get documentation of Delayed Birth Registration - dates started, etc. (Says 1941 on state page, but no citation.) - Pat
  • Get citation for statement in 1905 the state required copies to be sent to them. - Liz Done.
  • Documentation for 100 years - Wilma Done
  • Start templates and task page for Births - Wilma Started
  • Start on the State Archives project - Liz started adding info to Experimental County from the State Archives site to add pertinent links and info to each county.
