Talk:Texas, Deaths, 1890-1976 (FamilySearch Historical Records)Edit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

Question: Shouldn't the name of the wiki article be the same name as the collection?  I think it would make the information for the collection easier and more intuative to find.  Though, I am new to contributing to the wiki, so I am interested to learn the best way to do things.

Most wiki pages have the same name as the collection they describe, minus the years the collection covers. As a general rule, collection dates are not included in wiki article titles.
Occasionally there are multiple collections with the same name. However, the wiki cannot have multiple articles with the same name. At other times a single wiki article may cover multiple collections.
In these cases the name of the wiki articles are altered slightly to distinguish between collections or to more accurately describe the collections they represent. There may have been words or dates added to the article name or the article name may be more generic.
Please note the name for this article was recently changed to match the collection name.TimothyNB



Adding to these collections will continue until the collection is complete. There isn't a schedule available that states which counties will be added to this Historical Records collection. Please continue to check the collection as additions are made.

This is regarding the 1976 to 1986 collection.  Is there a time frame when all of the images will be uploaded?  I noticed that there aren't any images for Nueces County Dec 1985 as of yet.


Is there a way to to correct a name in the index to this collection when the name has been transcribed and  indexed incorrectly?


Thanks for asking. It's my understanding that FamilySearch will include the ability to add corrections to collections in the future. I believe it will be called annotating. There may be an article about it in the the FamilySearch blog.

You may report the problem by pressing the feedback button while looking at the collection in FamilySearch.

Thank you ,
