Breaking News!
The FamilySearch Research Wiki is upgrading in 2014. This includes shifts in elements such as the navigation bar and the layout of the pages. In anticipation to this upgrade, we are testing new designs and other ideas to improve the user experience.

Let Your Opinion Count!
On this page you will find tests with different variations on how to view and access information on the Wiki. The purpose of these tests is to determine the best way to deliver genealogical research help to  anyone - from the beginner to the advanced genealogists - who uses the Wiki.  We will test the structure of wiki pages, ease of use, and presentation of information.

Once the testing period is complete, a wiki page will be created to provide results and conclusions from the feedback.


HOW TO START: Choose a test below and provide feedback regarding your experience.
