Hi, Mike,
 +
 
 +
I like the term "Local Histories" for two reasons:
 +
 
 +
#The title "Histories" could invite date-related information rather than resources.
 +
#It could easily be confused with the "History" section toward the top -- which should be inviting date-related info.
 +
#It is clearer for the author and the user that these are&nbsp;more likely to be county, town, or regional resources than state-level resources.
 +
 
 +
Other than that, it does not matter a whole lot. However, if it is changed, it should be put where it fits alphabetically.

Thanks! Wilma

Soliciting your opinion

Hey Wilma, will you weigh in on "Local Histories" or "Histories" heading on county pages? I want to reach consensus on this quickly in order to get a big missionary team engaged in FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Linking to Books in the BYU Family History Archives. I'm asking for your opinion because you notice issues I overlook. Thanks in advance! Ritcheymt 13:46, 17 May 2009 (UTC)


Hi, Mike,

I like the term "Local Histories" for two reasons:

  1. The title "Histories" could invite date-related information rather than resources.
  2. It could easily be confused with the "History" section toward the top -- which should be inviting date-related info.
  3. It is clearer for the author and the user that these are more likely to be county, town, or regional resources than state-level resources.

Other than that, it does not matter a whole lot. However, if it is changed, it should be put where it fits alphabetically.


Thanks! Wilma
