Magnus Sälgö Stockholm. Sweden. I have a background working with IT (programming and design) and are also interested in genealogy. I am interested in taking part of and develop this Wiki with information about swedish genealogy - special parish information.....

We started to add valuable external resources at wikitree but I feel the wikitree site is not used to develop pages using templates etc....So I am interested in see what we can do at familysearch. As I feel using templates is the core of developing wiki pages.... I like what I have seen so far at Family Search and maybe I can add value....

You run a later version of Wikimedia and have also start using the Visual Editor whch I hope is a key factor to get "normal" people start adding information....

The project I started at Wikitree see project description.

Example of a category page for Asarum (K) in Blekinge. The interesting concept is that we have 3 different levels

  1. One Sweden level Free Space page SPC_Header
  2. One county page ex. SPC-K
  3. And the parish page Asarum (K) that is a Category page
  4. I started to add boilerplates for all external sources and also User stories

Today we have just external links using templates on a parish page and then we connect user profiles that belongs to this parish.

Next step:

  1. Adding more templates to support external resources like
    1. Sveriges äldsta storskaliga kartor -old maps example Strömsholm
    2. Add Härads kartor from Kartrummet ==> we should have Free space pages for Härads inkluded in a parish page
  2. Add more navigational boxes as Family Search has you have Template:Sweden
  3. See if we can do something like the Infobox_Swedish_Parishes approach you have
