Please comment[edit source]

  • What do we do with the Websites section now on the Beaver County page?
  • Moved Neighboring Counties under Quick Facts, rather than Places/Localities
  • Moved Places/Localities below Resources
  • Emigration, Immigration put under Migration
  • Vital records area -- request for comments
  • Church records area: we want a separate brainstorming meeting for this in October. Please sign with 4 tildes if interested. AdkinsWH 18:13, 27 September 2011 (UTC)


  1. Places/Localities is a misleading name. It's Muncipalities/Communities template now. Moved to just below References and just above Utah topic template.
  2. Consolidate Emigration, Emmigration into Migration
  3. Neighboring Counties is absorbed already in M/C template.
  4. Church records should be rural for county page, and if local place is known, on that local page.
  5. Websites are being done away, changing to deeplinking to specific records and placing in appropriate sections. "Websites" are providing not being useful because researchers aren't going through the process to find specific records, they go straight at every chance.
  6. Vital records, There is a specific period of time the county kept records (1896-1905)
  7. Annihilate the "Books or Films...." Please be specific.

The Infobox is already on this page. It is the same box as the Albany County, New York one but adapted to Utah counties.

The Infobox has a heading of "Courthouse" but the information is for the County Admin building. There is also information about the Courthouse later on in the text. Is this a problem?

Info Box[edit source]

Is there some reason the Info box on Record Dates is the first item on this page? Just wondering.
