Revision as of 22:47, 10 December 2012

This is task Phase 1a for LDS Church Records in Utah

The purpose of this task is to make it easier for users to learn about the Utah wards or branches their ancestors attended. This Phase 1a focuses on the Utah stakes and the wards and branches within them.

Task Description

The task itself is to copy and adapt the pattern (found on the Discussion page) to LDS stakes. Details of stake boundaries will be added (with links to adjoining stakes) and a list of wards and branches within the stake.

First focus is on early and important areas: Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, Washington, and Weber Counties. Once the stakes and wards are done for these areas, we will move to the rest of the state.

The history timeline will be completed for stake pages in this phase. First focus will be on stakes in St. George, Logan, Ogden, Provo, Orem, Salt Lake City, Bountiful.

  • Note: The history timeline portion for Salt Lake City is in "discovery" mode. A few of us will work together to discover just how to present a LOT of historical detail in a way that will help rather than confuse.

Examples of stake pages

Have practiced with stake boundaries, wards and branches, AND timeline on the following:

Bear River Stake, Utah
Benson Stake, Utah
Liberty Stake, Utah


Step 1. Identify a stake to add

  • Pick a county that is not "Done" from the county list.
  • Click a red link to a stake on the LDS chart
    • OR click on each place on the county chart until you find one in a "red link" stake.
  • When all places are checked and all stakes have blue links, please type "Done" after the county name below and go to another county.

Step 2. Copy and adapt the stake pattern

C) Type the stake name in the table, with it's link as follows:

[[Bear River Stake, Utah LDS Church Wards and Boundaries|Bear River Stake]]

(Wilma: put the template at the end of the above link)

A) Click the Discussion tab
B) Click the "Edit This Page" button.
C) Select Wikitext
D) Highlight all (Ctrl+A) and copy (Ctrl+C)
E) Cancel edit

Step 2. Paste the pattern to a (pre-determined) empty page

In another tab or window, click to the county page.

A) On the county page, go to the Churches and Religious Groups topic
B) Click a red (inactive) link -- under the "Church of Jesus Christ..." heading

It will tell you the page does not exist.

D) Fill in edit Summary box: "copied pattern" and Save page

Step 3. Adapt the Pattern

A) Breadcrumb trail:

  • Change "Beaver" to the current county (2 instances in breadcrumb trail)
  • Change "Frisco" to current town with comma
  • Fill in edit Summary, "Breadcrumb", Save page

B) Get correct pages from Jenson's Encyclopedic History. Before you get into edit mode,

  • Click on the link, search by place, scroll down to see page numbers
    • Hint: slide down to the alphabet for the place, and check the page(s) with hits to see which one is the beginning page. Then determine which is the ending page.
  • Get into edit WikiText again, and change the page numbers (p 5-6) to the pages for this place

C) Under "Obtain the Records":
