Wiki Content[edit | edit source]
Have we finally decided to make changes to the opening Wiki page? Can we make changes and go live? Wilma would like to see usability pages. We did look at Popular pages to see the views of every page. Consensus..let's try going live and if anyone complains, send complains to GM.
Featured content - can we make that more visible? Is there someone who could take that on? Place that on the main page? How useful would this be?
Community Council Report[edit | edit source]
Jane (Community Council Chair) is working with a group of England missionaries preparing for FGS.
A group plans to go back to courthouses to see what records are not digitized. They are creating a document that lists all the projects that they hold. Will be in a form of an Excel spreadsheet. See Washington County, Ohio Courthouse Records
