Review of last meeting

Progress reports

  • Funeral home records - Lois Fowles is almost finished inputting funeral homes on the county pages.
    • Brainstorm: we need a questionnaire so people can review their websites and contact the mortuaries to learn:
      • years their records began
      • complete run since then?
      • records they create for each funeral
        • what do they keep?

From last week:

    • Church records -- often used to document for delayed birth (SS, citizinship, etc, Legal needs)
    • Church did not keep a copy of the record they gave to the individual. Use the membership records. Pat will double-check on that.
  • 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.
  • Learn to make our own "badge" and other templates that allow adaptation - Wilma and Jana? Jana made significant progress. Asking Steve for help.
