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.
  • Liz started adding info to Experimental County the State Archives site to add pertinent links and info to each county.
  • Jana did the badge, but Wilma messed it up trying to make it an internal, rather than an external link.
  • James did some heavy work on How to Find Birth Information in the United States.
  • Get documentation of Delayed Birth Registration - dates started, etc. (Says 1941 on state page, but no citation.) - Pat
