FamilySearch Wiki Needs Volunteers to Help...

Many Hands Make Light Work...

Everyone knows at least a little bit about something or someplace. The information you contribute could be exactly what someone else needs to connect with or add to their family history.

Volunteer Wiki


Pages & Projects That Need Your Help

Beginner Projects

Some examples of beginner projects might be checking for broken links or adding categories to pages.
  • Adding Categories
  • Repair Broken Links
  • Add information to your county and/or city pages.
  • Prepare county histories - county section of each state.
  • Repositories - what's in a repository of genealogical interest ... U.S. Canada.
  • Write about Migration Trails - Which Counties and Towns they went through in both the U.S. and Canada.

Stub Pages

A "Stub" is a page containing a limited amount of information. If you need help learning about stub pages and how to add information to them, review the article FamilySearch Wiki:Stub. Follow a link below to help fill out pages that need more information:


Instructions for moderator: To see all of the stub articles for your locality, review Category: California stubs.

Wanted Pages

A "Wanted Page" is a page that doesn't yet exist, but someone created a link to it, showing that they want a page on that topic created. For online classes to learn how to create a new page or wiki article click here: Creating a Wiki Article Searching for and Creating Articles.
Follow the red links below to create a requested Wanted page:

Maintaining Existing Pages

Check and fix broken links

Specific Needs for Your Area

  • 1. State, county, and town histories often contain biographical sketches of local citizens, including important genealogical information. This may be one of the best sources of information for some families.
  • 2. If you are interested in being a moderator for a state or country, please contact the Support Team

Other Help Wanted Projects

If there are other areas of the FamilySearch Wiki you would like to volunteer for, we have a Wiki Help Wanted page that lists additional projects and areas where help is needed.
