Ideas to show the previous jurisdictions on the land that became Arizona
- Make sure that the History section of all Arizona county articles explain all previous jurisdiction changes and give record repositories (revise as necessary).
- Create a series of maps showing previous jurisdictions that will cover roughly the following three time periods
- Spain and Mexico maps will show jurisdictional boundaries (if any). Also possibly will show land grants and when granted, only those actually accepted by the US will be included. Maybe also include founding of missions. There are ??? dates when changes were made.
- New Mexico Territory maps will show the counties created, there are ??? dates when changes were made to counties.
- Arizona (Territory and State) maps will show the counties created, there are 15 dates when changes were made to counties.
- All of the above maps will have the present day Arizona (with all it counties) superimposed for reference.
- All the above maps may be placed in an animated GIF format, which will automatically cycle thru all the maps while the user watches. [Good idea, but maybe impossible to accomplish]
- For each of the above maps, give an explanation of the jurisdictional changes and where the record repositories are.
- All the above to be placed in the Family Search Wiki on a new sub-article(?) to Arizona.
- Find a Title for the above sub-article to Arizona
Extinct or Renamed Counties of Arizona

Dear Gene Sabin,
Thanks for your thoughts. I changed the names of the links and added explanations. There are suggestions and links to other resources. Please check to see if the changes will address your concerns and ideas.
I found some of the links not working. On one of the websites, all of their links were broken and I could not find them. I moved ones that were only counties sites to the counties wiki sites.
Thanks for helping. Hopefully we will here from you at the Utah.

Apparently we disagree on where the Utah page should go to the Utah burial Database. When we are sending the patron to the search page for a person, I feel they should go directly to the page where they enter the names. Please give me a call so we can discuss the page.

Thanks for helping on Utah pages!
Hi, Sabwoo, We noticed several edits in Washington County, Utah that you made, and really appreciate how you are clarifying and cleaning up some of the content. We have a project going for Utah. Our purpose is to get great, understandable content, to collaborate with people like yourself, and to create a "pattern" of basics for counties that other people can follow for their counties, if they wish. Please contact me.AdkinsWH 17:02, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
