Posting instructional materials on the wiki
Some LDS family history consultants have asked about how and where to place class notes (what they discussed and so forth) in the wiki, and related to that would be how to title and categorize such. Some involved with this have said this would be a good way to share handout-type material, lesson notes, etc., given at various family history events. They are asking more about this matter, so we need to get some best practices, and categorizing such material, etc., relating to this. JamesAnderson 02:35, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Here's an example of what might be done in these instances. This came from the R&C Zone at the FHL and had been set up for the missionaries there to use, but it already looks like it is exactly the type of thing that could be done. https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/R%26C_Strategies_for_Using_U.S._Census
