Project Instructions[edit | edit source]

1. Select your county by going to the task list and adding your name to the name column.

2. Go to the county page in the Wiki.

3. Find the heading "Vital Records".

4. Check to see if the collections being added to the page are listed under the death heading. See below for examples.

5. If they are, go to the next county. If any are missing, go to the next step.

6. Copy the code below.

*'''1919-1930''' [https://vault.georgiaarchives.org/digital/collection/gadeaths/search Georgia Death Certificates] at [https://vault.georgiaarchives.org/digital/ Georgia Archives Virtual Vault] - index and images
*'''1928-1930''' [https://vault.georgiaarchives.org/digital/collection/nondeath Georgia Non-Indexed Death Certificates] at [https://vault.georgiaarchives.org/digital/ Georgia Archives Virtual Vault] - images

7. Find the "deaths" heading on the Wiki page.

8. Paste each line of code in step 6 for deaths under the heading so it is in chronological order with the other links. You will need to place each one separately. See example below.
