So you’ve learned how the Research Wiki can help you in your research. Now you’d like to add a little bit of your own knowledge to the Wiki, to give back so that other researchers can find some of those great resources that you have discovered. But you’re not quite sure where to begin. FamilySearch can now help you get going with editing in the Wiki. Call FamilySearch at 866-406-1830, Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm MDT, or click here for the international numbers, and ask for Wiki Support for help in getting started from our knowledgeable Wiki team members.
What can you do to help improve the Wiki? Find out more.
Editing in the Research Wiki is as easy as using your favorite word processor.
- Think about what you know, about where you have experience researching. Go to the Wiki page for that location (county, state, province, country, etc.), and see if what you know is already there. Click Edit This Page, and add what you know.
- Share where you would be interested in adding to the wiki. Add your name to this page, then start talking with others who are interested in the same area.
- Are you experienced with online teaching, and how to present information online?
Do you have a knack for photography, or finding great illustrations to go with specific topics? Contact FamilySearch Wiki Support to help us get our Page Enhancement team off the ground.
- Become a Moderator for a location where you have experience, and help guide the building of the Wiki in that location.
