Question: Would the page be more helpful if the "proposed, extinct, and non-county areas" mentioned in Boundary Changes at Newberry Library site were added? Would the dates these [failed] counties were proposed be helpful if YOUR ancestor's lived in that area?
Pages and Projects That Need Your Help
Some examples of beginner projects might be checking for broken links or adding categories to pages.

A "Stub" is a page containing a limited amount of information. If you need help learning about stub pages and how to add information to them, review the article FamilySearch Wiki:Stub. Follow a link below to help fill out pages that need more information:
1. State, county, and town histories often contain biographical sketches of local citizens, including important genealogical information. This may be one of the best sources of information for some families.
2. If you are interested in being a moderator for a state or country, please contact the Support Team
