Thank you for being willing to take on the responsibilities of a Research Wiki Trainer! As a Wiki Trainer, you'll teach others about contributing to the Wiki. You may be:

  1. Part of an organization who has adopted pages in the Wiki, or
  2. A volunteer with a Family History Center, or
  3. An individual who would like to help others learn how to contribute.

In any case, we appreciate your service!

Contents

Learn about the Wiki

If you are new to the wiki, you'll want to be aware of four important links that will teach you what you need to know about the Wiki:
Wiki Tour
What the Wiki is for and how to use it
Contributor Helps
Get started contributing to the Wiki
Community Center
Ways you can collaborate with others
Community links (on the right --> )
Include frequently used links for contributors
Those four sets of links will give you all the information you need to get started. (They are also the first links that you will let others know about as you help them to become contributors in the Wiki.)

Responsibilities of the Wiki Trainer

Within an Organization

As a Wiki Trainer affiliated with an organization, your goal will be to help other members of that organization be successful in contributing to the Wiki.
Adopting Organizations
Your responsibility will be to work with individuals to help them be successful as they attempt to get started in the Wiki.
  • Work one-on-one with individual members to help them know how to contribute. The best ways to do this are to:

  1. Teach them about the four getting started links above
  2. Help them
  • Make sure they know where to go for help

Family History Centers or LDS Stakes
Your responsibilities will be to:
  1. Help create your center's Wiki page
  2. Teach the family history consultants, volunteers, and even patrons:
  • About the Research Wiki and what it is
  • How to use the Wiki to help others research
  • How to contribute and add knowledge to the Wiki

An Individual

If you have found satisfaction in contributing your knowledge to the Wiki and would like to share that joy with others, we welcome you to reach out to others and help them be successful as well.
(More information coming in the near future...)
