NOTE: This Project Task is now complete. As cities, towns, and municipalities are found to be missing, they will be added individually, but the task for the Project is now finished.

Task Description

Pages for many of the cities and towns of Idaho need to be created. The larger cities will have many of the records for the headings in the prototype page and perhaps even other records of value to genealogists and family historians.

For example, most cities and even some of the smaller towns have newspapers, cemeteries, directories, funeral homes or mortuaries, etc.

Some will have churches of various denominations, but the specific denominations listed may not apply to all the cities and towns, so may need to be changed to fit, including the adding of additional denominations.

Some cities and even smaller towns may have histories, but county histories should be listed at that level.

The following is the Prototype page to copy and paste for each new city or town being added to the Research Wiki for Idaho cities and towns, as assigned.

"Quick facts" allude to a brief history of the founding of the town or city, how it got its name, etc. "Former name" is the place to record name changes for the city or town. "Geographical location" is intended to give at least a general idea of the location of city or town, such as that stated for Pocatello.

As each new page is created, the team member creating the page may add a much or as little as they know about the locality. If nothing is known about the city or town, create the page anyway. Others will add additional information at a later time.

Following the prototype page is a task chart showing what needs to be added. As in other tasks, please add your name in the appropriate place by adding three tildes (~~~, in order to avoid duplication.
