About WikiProjects Create a new project Naming a project

One of the best ways to help get a lot of similar pages filled out in thewiki is to start a WikiProject. A WikiProject is a collection of pages devoted to helping to update or add content to specific topic within FamilySearch Wiki.

With a WikiProject, you can:

  • Bring groups of people together to work on a project
  • Separate out the work that needs to be done
  • Give instructions that can always be updated within the wiki
  • Find the best ways to communicate with each other
For a good example of one successful WikiProject, see the Idaho WikiProject.


Project Features:

  • Projects have project pages where ideas are generated, tasks are assigned, and progress is tracked.
  • All known WikiProjects are listed at Projects Seeking Contributors.
  • The discussion page attached to a project page is a convenient place to discuss ideas for the project.
  • All project pages should reside within the FamilySearch Wiki namespace. (Also see Help:Namespaces for more details about all the namespaces in the FamilySearch Wiki.)
