Summary of Yammer[edit | edit source]

  • FamilySearch releases NEW Freedmen's Bureau Records for Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia
  • The IL State page topic column lists a topic of "Emigration and Immigration" which is linked to an article named "Illinois Emigration and Immigration." It also lists a topic "Migration" which links to an article named "Illinois Migration." The FHL uses the topics "Emigration and Immigration" and "Migration, internal." What do you think about combining these two topics and articles on the Wiki?
  • Creation of county seat pages, cont'd: This is the decision the Wiki Governance Council came up with, regarding the creation of county seat pages.
    • We want to avoid the creation of many empty pages, UNLESS, we have a plan to fill those pages in a reasonable amount of time. Exceptions should be submitted for approval to the Wiki Community Council. If empty pages have already been created we should work on finding content for them.
