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
