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
  • 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.

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: Nevada stubs.
