FamilySearch Wiki:Use History Heading Rather than Local Histories Heading in Place PagesEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
When adding to a place page (such as a county page) a section which either details the history of the place or lists various published histories of the place, use the heading "History" rather than "Local Histories." This guideline promotes readability in that it follows a convention used in telephone directories -- constructing entries such that the noun, not the modifier, is the first word in the entry. Thus, in a telephone directory like Switchboard.com, you might see "Restaurants," then "Restaurants -- Chinese" rather than "Chinese Restaurants." The underlying idea in this wiki convention is that users looking for historical information about a place will look under "H" for history rather than "L" for local. See the Talk page for more information.
