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

Prep

A. Get the Red Book

Please use the 3rd edition, cited in Prep step B.

B. Copy the Citation

Copy the following citation into computer memory.

Alice Eichholz, ''Red Book: American State, County and Town Sources'', 3rd ed. (Salt Lake City: Ancestry Pub., 2004), 676-677. {{WorldCat|55947869|disp=At various libraries (WorldCat)}}; {{FHL|1185723|item|disp=FHL Book 973 D27rb 2004}}.


C. Sign up for a county

1. Go to the Sign up Chart and follow directions to sign up for a county.

2. Type the name of that county in the Summary box and Save Page

3. Click to the County

Add the Citation, Correct the Dates

A. Paste the Citation

1. On the county page, click Edit. (NOT in Wikitext)

2. Place the cursor after "Dates for major county records"

3. Click the left <R> icon (NOT the one that says "References" next to it)

4. Paste the citation in the window that comes up, and click OK

5. In the Summary, write "citation for dates in chart"

6. Save page.

B. Change the Dates

1. If needed, change the dates major records began to match the Red Book

2. If changes to dates were made, write in the Summary, "fixed chart dates," and Save page

Click back to the task page, and repeat for the next county.

Sign up Chart

Volunteers are needed to check all 29 counties, making additions and changes requested above. Please place four tildes (~~~~) in the "Volunteer" column next to the county(s) you choose for this task. This will automatically show your username and the date you signed up.
