Wiki Project New York Tasks - Church Records: USGenWeb Task

Description[edit | edit source]

Search the county NYGenWeb page for pertinent church record databases and add them to the Church Record heading on the county page.

Instructions[edit | edit source]

1. Click on NYGenweb

2. Click on your county. Once on the page, look around to see if there is a page on Church records. Sometimes it's hiding on the vital records page so look around!

3. Examine each link to determine:

a. If the link works. If it doesn't do not include.
b. Examine the information in the database to see if it is worth listing on the wiki. If it's just a church history and does not list church members names, do not list it on the page. It will be your decision as to if it is worthwhile to list the database.

4. If there are less than 5 worthwhile databases listed on the website, list each database under "Online Church Records Abstracts" in chronological and then alphabetical order in the following manner:

:* [ Christ Episcopal Church - Cuba, New York, Parish Records Index, Volume 1] on Allegany County NYGenWeb - free

5. If there is information about the database that you would like to add (i.e, index only, not complete, etc), add it to the end of entry.

6. If there are dates listed in the title of the database, repeat the dates just after the bullet in bold. Make sure to use the N–dash between the dates and anytime it is used in wiki text. The N–dash is made by holding the alt key and typing 0150:
:*'''1877-1885''' [ Auburn First United Methodist Church, Marriages, 1877 - 1885] on Cayuga County NYGenWeb - free

7. If there are more than 5 databases listed on the GenWeb page, copy the url link to the Church records page and add the following instead of listing each database - example:

:* [ Allegany County Church Records on NYGenWeb]
