INSTRUCTIONS FOR EDITING CODE:

  1. Replace Xxxxxx with your county name (mixed case)
  2. Replace the ZZZZ with the 4-digit year for each item in the following order:
    • Year Birth Records First Recorded
    • Year Marriage Records First Recorded
    • Year Death Records First Recorded
    • Year Census Records First Recorded
    • Year Land Records First Recorded
    • Year Probate Records First Recorded

ON THE DATE LINES, BE SURE THERE IS A SPACE AFTER THE " | " BAR, and then just type in the corresponding date. If you do not currently know the date for one of the categories, remove the "ZZZZ" and insert "&nbsp" after the "|" (remembering to leave one space after the bar)

If you do not know these dates, many can be found on the WeRelate Wiki page for the    corresponding county. http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Main_Page See the "Timeline" section for dates.

Quicktip: If you paste the Quick Dates code into Wordpad, Notepad or any of the other WP programs, you can do a quick "find and replace" for the county name: "find" Xxxxxx and "replace" with your county name and it will change all the X's at once.
