Review of last meeting

Progress reports

  • Cemetery Records progress:
    • The table was simplified for adding/editing, templates for beg and end of the table.
    • Ready to move to the counties? Liz and group:
  • LDS Church records table: Wilma has put it on 2 counties: Beaver, Box Elder
    • Show the situation, get counsel from group
  • Task to adapt the "pattern" for each LDS community: Wilma created templates for generic sections of the pattern page. Marty, Joy, and Lois have not yet been trained.
    • Task to add timelines from Jensen's: Marty and Bo have not yet been trained.


    • Pat will contemplate links to Tracing LDS Ancestors from area of counties:
      • Decision? County and Utah
    • Genealogical Surveys also mentioned in last meeting:
      • Decision? Ogden stake (26 vols), Davis county (9 vol), Don't want to recreate the FHLC. Just
    • Patriarchal Blessings suggestion from last meeting - link to index from Utah page. Perhaps under church records, perhaps part of birth page. Has names of parents, etc. and some can only find those from this index. Hancock County, IL as well.
      • Was this resolved last week? Should be on Tracing LDS Ancestors. Record is not restricted
  • Maps follow-up: Marilyn will check with Jason Harrison and David Dilts for what they are doing. Results: Newberry atlas of historical county boundaries.

SEO

  • SEO (Search Engine Optimizer) Beaver County, Utah
    • Today: finalize enough so we can put it in a template and add/adapt to every county.

From previous meetings (no progress):

  • FHLC links. To do: once Libraries section is ready, show the FHLC links to the person who has not liked them. Wilma:
  • Get documentation of Delayed Birth Registration - dates started, etc. (Says 1941 on state page, but no citation.) - Pat
  • Do the county newspaper pages - Wilma
  • Value and frequency of FHLC links - topic of a near future meeting.
  • Utah Record Selection Table needs updating. (Just keeping on the list until done)

Idea share

Most important (county) discussions remaining: (prioritized in last week's meeting)

Minimum information for each topic:

Per project leaders meeting (Oct 23) and group meeting (Oct 31)
  • Blurb giving value and scope of the records
  • FHLC link
  • Link to the Utah page for that topic
  • Links to Ancestry.com and FS Historical Records collections Done by Jana early Nov.

"Boots on the ground" person or group to maintain, update, add to each county.

Ideas per group meeting Oct 31
  • UGA Patsy can get zips of UGA members and contact for their interest
