Each month in the FamilySearch Wiki Contributor Newsletter, we would like to highlight articles that may be getting missed by researchers and contributors. There are so many wonderful articles in the Wiki that it is hard to choose which ones to highlight, and we welcome any suggestions our readers may have.
This month, we would suggest that you take a look at a past wiki article titled “Retirement of Research Outlines.” Why? We have been asked numerous times, “What happened to the old Research Outlines that we used to have at the family history centers, and on the old FamilySearch website?”
Many of us know that these outlines were the foundation for the current Research Wiki, but there are many others who do not know this. Even if they do know it, they still don’t know what the format is or what happened to the original outlines. The answer is a short page entitled, “Retirement of Research Outlines”
We recently had a family history director attending a Wiki class who got very excited when shown this page. She had received many inquiries about the outlines, and she was thrilled to know what had happened to them. Now, she can pass that information on to others. The article gives an example and a link to related content.
