Our index of obituaries is getting very large – well over 1,000 obituaries and death notices now. And a manual index is getting harder and harder to maintain.
But, while we await a better tool, it was time to break that very long list into many smaller lists. Now it recreates itself from 25 separate pages, and a click on the letter will bring you to that character’s sub-index, which is where future editing will take place.
For the volunteers, this is easier to find where to add the link. And over the next weeks we hope to move the remaining obituaries over to blog articles, making them more findable in search engines.
