Step 1: Adding Info to Military heading[edit | edit source]

1. Go to the military heading on the county page.

2. Copy and paste the following wikitext under any text already appearing under the heading:

===== Revolutionary War =====
*'''1775 - 1783''' - {{RecordSearch|2546162|United States Rosters of Revolutionary War Soldiers and Sailors, 1775-1783}} at [ FamilySearch] - images only<br>
*''For more nationwide Revolutionary War databases, see [[United_States_Military_Online_Genealogy_Records|US Military Online Genealogy Records]].''

===== Civil War =====
* Oklahoma, Confederate Pension Index, 1915-1955] at [ Ancestry] — index (free)
*''For more nationwide Civil War databases, see [[United_States_Military_Online_Genealogy_Records|US Military Online Genealogy Records]].''

===== WWI =====

*''For more nationwide World War I databases, see [[United_States_Military_Online_Genealogy_Records|US Military Online Genealogy Records]].''

===== WWII =====
*[ Oklahoma Military Deaths] - Oklahoma Historical Society
*''For more nationwide World War II databases, see [[United_States_Military_Online_Genealogy_Records|US Military Online Genealogy Records]].''

3. NOTE: if there is other content under the heading that is similar to the new information, fit the current information in a logical manner with the databases above. For example, if there is already a link to another Civil War database, place it with the other Civil War databases linked under the Civil War heading. Change the information as you deem necessary.

4. Once you have added the wikitext, preview the page by clicking on, Show Preview at the bottom of the page. Check your work to make sure it looks like it should. Make any necessary adjustments.

5. Go to the bottom of the page and enter "added military records" in the edit summary box and save the page.

6. You are now done with the task. Go to the next County on your list.
