First focus is on early and important areas: Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, Washington, and Weber Counties. Once the stakes and wards are done for these areas, we will move to the rest of the state.

The history timeline will be completed for stake pages in this phase. First focus will be on stakes in St. George, Logan, Ogden, Provo, Orem, Salt Lake City, Bountiful.
 
*Note: The history timeline portion for Salt Lake City is in "discovery" mode. A few of us will work together to discover just how to present a LOT of historical detail in a way that will help rather than confuse.

The purpose of this task is to make it easier for users to learn about the Utah wards or branches their ancestors attended. This Phase 1a focuses on the Utah stakes and the wards and branches within them.

Contents

  • Copy boundaries from Jenson's.
    • If other stakes are mentioned, create a link to them, as follows:

  • History timeline: after the bullet (* in WikiText), put the year, month, day and "Organized from zz Stake, Utah

C) Under "Obtain the Records":

  • Update the county page so all stakes are listed
  • Add wards without place names to the appropriate area, with the link to the appropriate Stake page.

Start over with Step 1

Counties ready

All counties are ready. Please write "Done" after a completed county.

Note: Some counties, especially Salt Lake, may start to look really jumbled on the county pages. Let's forge ahead, and Wilma will struggle with better presentation for the users.

First focus: Cache Done · Davis  · Salt Lake · Utah · Washington  · Weber

Counties ready: Beaver · Box Elder · Carbon · Daggett · Duchesne  · Emery  · Garfield · Grand  · Iron · Juab  · Kane  · Millard · Morgan  · Piute · Rich  · San Juan  · Sanpete  · Sevier  · Summit  · Tooele  · Uintah · Wasatch · Wayne
