FamilySearch Wiki talk:WikiProject England Parish Tables: Berkshire Part 1

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

As an editor of this wiki I am concerned about the direction of this project. It seems that the project involves copying and pasting the same default code with the same dates and websites for each and every parish in Berkshire. The assumption appears to be that all the websites have every parish for the full range of years. A quick glance here: https://www.findmypast.com/articles/berkshire-parish-list for instance shows that FMPs records for Berkshire are missing many parishes and few parishes cover the full 1538-1917 year range. Even if it is intended to correct them later (I notice this is "Part 1", but there is no mention of a Part 2), there is still a period where very inaccurate information in large quantities is being placed on this wiki. --Av85647 (talk) 05:26, 2 August 2018 (UTC)


Hi Av85657,

Thank you for your suggestions on how to better this project and for sending us a link to the FindMyPast coverage table. We will use this article in the next phase of this project, which is change those dates on the FMP collection to correspond with each parish. This project to make the tables on each Berkshire parish page more complete and unique for each parish is a big project and so will take a few months to complete with the help of wiki missionaries. Other phases of this project include adding specific links to the IGI and the FamilySearch Catalog for each parish.

Thanks,
