If, for some reason, I miss doing a weekly report, its ok, the world will not end at that time. Go through the report and put X's in each space so as to not confuse myself the next week.

Go through and correct all errors that were counted for the week. Use your guide as to what to leave and what to fix.

The report format is for 3 months at a time. NEVER take the report for the past 3 months and change it for the next 3 months. I must ALWAYS locate the report for the stated 3 months time frame. There is a report for Jan, Feb, March. One for April, May, June. One for July, Aug, and Sept. And one for Oct, Nov, and Dec.


Locate the report by typing in the search bar: FamilySearch Wiki:Maintenance Report.
It will show the 4 different reports. Pick the 3 month period that I need. With the new report loaded, go into Edit Source and then edit.
