Overall Objectives

To create entry and landing pages in the wiki that more clearly illustrate and describe the use of the wiki as a genealogical research tool; how it can enhance both beginning and advanced family historians' understanding of where and how to search for information concerning their ancestors; and to give more information to users who might be interested in helping in specific ways.

We are focusing on the following types of users:

  • Researchers & Research Helpers (Consultants, etc.)
  • Contributors
  • Maintenance workers (we believe we can draw more people in, who want to help in small ways by doing maintenance work)

Resources

  • If anyone is having a hard time verbally describing a layout design they’d like considered, there are a number of free or inexpensive mockup applications available that can be used to create an image(s) to share with others.
