The goal of this project is to document standards for basic United States county pages. Since each state and county is different it is expected that individual county pages will vary to some degree but certain features will be consistent. New ideas will be tested and documented here for individual state and county moderators and adopters to use as a resource. Recommendations may be recorded for topics such as search engine optimization or best practices for graphics on the county pages. Specific plans for individual counties will not apply here but may be discussed as options on the discussion page.

Current Tasks Needing Volunteers

  • Sample existing county pages for common practices
  • Identify possible search engine optimization enhancements

Completed Tasks

  • none yet (it's a new project)

Project Scope

County pages exist to lead wiki users to resources that will help them answer their family history questions. Research differs from one county to the next due to record survival, loss and availability. Although county pages will vary, it will be helpful to maintain a standard look and feel so that users will be able to make as easy a transition from one locality to another as they do their research.
