FamilySearch Wiki is about how to find, use, and analyze records of genealogical value. Its articles should be written in a neutral point of view to the fullest extent possible. However, genealogical advice is subjective by nature. What are the three best record sources to find the parents of an ancestor who lived in Pennsylvania in 1883? Ask two experts and you're likely to get two different answers.

That's where community comes in. The reliability of subjective articles increases as more experts join in conversation. Any article that should be reviewed for its neutrality can be flagged with the {{Pov}} template.
