Improve the Wiki

  • How to tell the world about book collections or other unique genealogical materials in the possession of small FHCs that are not in the main FHL catalog. I know we don't normally allow lists in the Wiki but what about separate pages listing these materials linked to the FHC that have collections. Bookcat, for example, cost $17 to about $30 or more to set up collections in their date base. Considering how many FHC there are that could run into some money. Maybe there could be some way to get this stuff into the FHL catalog so it could be search from there. I'm sure that the volunteers from these centers would be glad to input this material into the FHL catalog if a way could be set up for it.
