Suggested improvements[edit source]
Possible improvements to the Illinois County Creation Dates and Parent Counties page:
- Carroll County needs the creation date, parent counties, and later counties added.
- Question: Would the page be more helpful if the "proposed, extinct, and non-county areas" mentioned in Boundary Changes at Newberry Library site were added? Would the dates these [failed] counties were proposed be helpful if YOUR ancestor's lived in that area? Suggested by AdkinsWH 16:23, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
- The pattern is simple to follow once you are in Wikitext on the page.
- This does require Wikitext and attention to the pattern of other counties.
- The page is in an easy-to-understand table format.
- Creating links to historical boundary changes will be needed.
Completed suggestions[edit source]
- Question: Would the page benefit by adding another column for which IRAD Depository has the historical records for each county? IRAD's added AdkinsWH 17:53, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
- This does require Wikitext.
- Check the IRAD depository websites for a list of counties they the records for
- Add the link and the depository name in the IRAD column for that county (the column after the county name)
