NRHP docs now available online for Connecticut[edit]

I learned from User:Acroterion at my talk page that Connecticut (along with Alaska, North Carolina, North Dakota) now has NRHP nomination documents available at the National Park Service's NPS Focus webpage (try this NPS Focus interface). Should make it easier to develop NRHP articles, stubs or better. :) doncram (talk) 08:31, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

This link is more specifically an NRHP search page than is the other. Nyttend (talk) 12:17, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, yes, that more specific interface, allowing searches to be limited to a state or county, is better. Here's an example reference for one of these NRHP documents, composed in this case for Bradford-Huntington House in Norwichtown. Note this uses "first=" and "last=" fields for the author name (while using "author=" field works for giving multiple authors), and it gives author preparation date which is always given in Section 11 of the NRHP document:

<ref name="nrhpinv3">{{cite web|url=http://pdfhost.focus.nps.gov/docs/NRHP/Text/70000720.pdf |title=National Register of Historic Places Inventory-Nomination: Bradford-Huntington House |date=May 27, 1970 |first=Constance |last=Luyster |publisher=National Park Service}} and [http://pdfhost.focus.nps.gov/docs/NRHP/Photos/70000720.pdf ''Accompanying four photos, exterior, from 1961 and 1970'']</ref>

The reference should be attached after punctuation.[1] And, a second application of the reference, together with a page number 4 indication for example,[1]:4 can be given by:

<ref name=nrhpinv3/>{{rp|4}}

These references display as footnotes:
    Hope this example is helpful to others preparing CT NRHP articles. doncram (talk) 16:37, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

    good stub creation drive[edit]

    Hey, since NRHP docs are available on-line for almost all Connecticut NRHPs now, it would seem beneficial to create good stub articles. How about working on the National Register of Historic Places listings in New Haven, Connecticut list first? (Because there are stub/starter articles for most of its 59 entries already; because an editor, perhaps local, has been active, recently been developing the New Haven, Connecticut article. Happy to consider other ideas. --doncram (talk) 17:21, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
