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)
