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

  • Write about Migration Trails - Which Counties and Towns they went through in both the U.S. & 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:
