Meeting prep

  1. Create agenda
  2. Update Experimental County area from last and for next meeting
  3. Report progress
  4. Send email to potential attendees
    1. This has recently been only to those who come regularly

Order for "quick" topics (usually needing feedback more than discussion)

  • Probate
  • Land and property
  • Court
  • Funeral home records
  • Suggested things others can do (non-project)
    • Newspapers: add to the list on the county newspapers page (what is in the county (library and/or newspaper office); Also copies at U of U and other state repositories. Make a more complete list.
    • Probate, Land, Court: Feet on the ground people: loose papers as well as dockets and other volumes
    • Scour: libraries in their area; state archives; state hist soc; university libraries; other
    • Search the internet for stuff to add, especially at county level

Order for discussions that will likely take place over multiple weeks:

  1. Vital records, including divorce
  2. Cemeteries
  3. Church
  4. Libraries

Create a task

  1. Pick a topic
  2. Write something in the experimental county area for the group to respond to
  3. Capture ideas and responses (on the talk page) from the group in the meeting
  4. Implement the ideas and suggestions in the experimental county area and its talk page
  5. Bring it back to the group for discussion
  6. When finalized, write up the task
  7. Test it on a few counties for the purpose of refining the task
    1. Pick counties that may present challenges
    2. Recruit (new?) people to test the task, finish the project
