Better HELP pages

Recommended Posts

jayat1familytree

I would like to see better HELP pages, possibly in the more generic format like what is seen on the web site  ourfamtree.org

... or a video series. Many people like being shown what to do rather than read through endless pages of information.

The goal would be to help our users get the most out of our TNG sites in the shortest amount of time. The videos could cover the basics in a few minutes (any longer and people will probably lose interest).

  • TNG Getting Started
  • TNG Getting Around
  • TNG Searching
  • TNG Editing

Any video buffs out there?

YouTube link for TNG genealogy videos - otherwise a search on 'TNG' will mostly return: Star Trek: The Next Generation !

What I see are mostly video tutorials for setting up TNG. Are there any generic videos (that we all can use) to help our users get the most out of our TNG sites in the shortest amount of time?

Merv,

What you see is what you get...sorry! Maybe use a different search term(s)?

Thanks Del, I did numerous searches and couldn't find anything suitable. So back to my earlier comment....

Several years ago, I created a How to Navigate page for my site.  But it is very much out of date

You can find other Help User and User FAQ pages in the TNG Wiki Visitors Guide

I would like to see a How To on setting up one person with every ideal bit of information - enter the name and date and place of birth, add a source for the birth certificate and the repository for the birth certificate; same for info on death. Adding onto that a census record or two, pics of important events stating an ideal size for large image, thumbnail, etc.
