Improve the Wiki
- Blitz - Still stuck on Top Tier. Working on it. (Danielle)
- New link to Google Docs progress chart
- Wiki Census Chart updated to include 1940 census updated. Helpful to point out places where free indexes are located. Soundex books published on internetarchive.org Difficult search engine.
- Change the word "link" to "image or index?" Ever expanding location of places who have records, cannot keep table up. Question to ask is what information are we trying to provide readers and what is the best way to provide that information. One of biggest reason to keep it up is they are going off the 1940 page from the map, the census link goes to a page that has this chart on it.
- Be part of the solution! Make your opinions known! Post comments to an existing thread or start a new discussion at Wiki Contributors Corner forum.
