Many months passed, and we got 50 bright new state pages and nearly 4,000 lovely '''county''' pages with the help of [[User:PhloxBot]] and some rather painless copying from Wikipedia. Prominent at the top of each county page is a great genealogy-related navigation box. See [[Template talk:Navbox county1-en]] for improvements related to that but also an expression of concern that the county pages aren't in county categories. So we don't have ideal linkages to state categories. Overcoming that may be done in tandem with devising brilliant ideas for improving the state model - but reciprocally some of the state model ideas (such as the [[Cyndi's List]] ref) may be added to the county pages. Discuss!! [[User:Robin Patterson|Robin Patterson]] 16:12, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
 
 
 
Again several months passed with no discussion. One matter mentioned above is now on another forum [[Forum:County-based categories]]. State categories are being slowly populated with categories derived from the county level, such as [[:Category:Cemeteries in Ohio]] and [[:Category:Resided in Ohio]]. That process may be speeded up now that it is so easy to create many of those county-level specific-subject categories; see the original template in the set: [[Template:Born in UK]]. And anyone interested in a particular state should look at its category to see what's there (including images) that may lead to an addition to the state article.
