Task Description

Use Ancestry's RedBook to add starting dates for records, as mentioned in the top table on each of Utah's 29 counties.

Why Changes Are Needed

The chart now at the top of each county was added to get users to information more quickly.

The process of adding that chart was extensive, not allowing time and effort to verify and footnote where the information came from.

Therefore, starting dates need to be verified and footnoted, so everyone knows the source for those dates.

Steps 

Sign up Chart

Volunteers are needed to check all 29 counties, adding items as appropriate. Please place four tildes (~~~~) in the "Volunteer" column next to the counties you choose for this task. This will automatically show your username and the date you signed up.
