Live FamilySearch Wiki Community Meetings

The Wiki Community offers several meetings to support you in using the Wiki as a tool in your family history research. You may connect with other researchers with more experience that are willing to give you research direction. A project leader may be willing to mentor you when you join a project. You may want to collaborate with the advanced technical community and make suggestions for improving the Wiki. Join us in any or all of the meetings that interest you or create one of your own! Project leaders are encouraged to post their project pages and meetings under Project Meetings below.

Within MeetingPlace, pressing # 5 on your telephone will mute or un-mute your ability to speak during the meeting.
