Review of last meeting

January 9

Progress reports

  • Cemetery Records progress:
    • Liz has been delayed by new callings at her FSC and her project submission to BCG
  • LDS Church records Salt Lake County
    • Dawne Hole's team completed the stakes in Beaver, Cache, Carbon, Duschesne, Grand, Iron, Juab, Sevier, Wasatch, Washington, and Weber Counties. Joy and Bo Bogar, Jeff and Cathy Stevens, Elizabeth Kesler, and Claudia Heaston. KUDOS to them.
    • Salt Lake County and stakes in Provo and Orem are also completed.
    • Using an Excel file to find all Utah church units in the Catalog that have not been included in our Wiki files - completed Salt Lake and Utah counties.
    • David Dilts drew a map of the original 19 Wards of Salt Lake City and is in process of a clickable map for the Stakes in SLC.
  • County boundary changes for Newberry's site added to every county under Parent counties and under history timeline
    • To do: county blurb with links to Utah Maps page.
    • Extinct counties need to be added to the Utah page, with links to pages for them
  • Strategies How to Find Birth Information in the United States; United States, How to Find Genealogy Records (If James is back): More than halfway through with the Utah page.
  • County online collections badges: Decided last time to NOT do these due to maintenance. The county page itself should give that info.
  • Project end: We will adapt some of the tasks for the Ohio project so people will have something constructive to do. Wilma plans to be finished with her parts (see below) by March 31.
    • Next meeting: Mar 6th

Still needed:

  • Utah Record Selection Table
  • Wilma will focus soon on Library section, then Deaths, then Marriages.
  • Beginner's corner? Probably nothing until early next year that the "state pages" team meets.
  • Do the county newspaper pages: Wilma is learning how to extract the URL so we can make it go right to the correct area of Chronicling America - Wilma
  • Genealogical Surveys also mentioned in a previous meeting: Do only for Ogden, Davis, Salt Lake? and others with large compilations. P 13 of printed version Utah Research Outline granite stake, Ogden Stake, 289.3?...

From previous meetings:

  • Not a priority: Gallery of images: Joy and I talked about this. Need a process, so others can submit images of the various counties and we won't have to maintain it. (More discussion in Nov 21 meeting. Get with Joy about those suggestions.)
  • FHLC links.
    • To do: once Libraries section is ready, show the FHLC links to the person who has not liked them.
  • Wording for other topics.
  • Census
