Progress reports[edit | edit source]

  • Funeral home records - Lois Fowles is starting to input funeral homes on the county pages from one of the directories. (She was looking for work, so I gave her a big task that did not need a lot of explaining.) She will link to their web site and cite the reference to the directory.
    • Future task: contacting the mortuaries to learn: years they have, communities they serve, filmed?, (check with archives, etc.), specialties (Catholic, LDS, Jewish, etc.), records they keep for each person.
    • Obituaries online needs to be in ours. Patsy will look it up so we get it in. courtesy of Utah funeral directors assn.
  • Neighboring counties - Joy Bogar is updating the images and centering the blurb to the right of them. Starting to look really good.
    • Make maps clickable: see Jason or Beth for how to do it. Jana wants to be part of the training. Joy will probably be happy to do this.
