Map/Society Page ProjectEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
What is the Map/Society Page Project?
FamilySearch would like to include your society on our Family History Center finder map on FamilySearch.org! When a researcher looks for a center, currently they see all centers that are close to the search term. If your society is included, it will show along with any centers that are in the region.
When you are listed, we will place a society icon on the map where you are located, and will show:
- Society name
- Location of society building or meeting
- Hours of building or meeting
- Contact information
- Link to society page on the wiki - created and maintained by the society
The Society Wiki page includes:
- Purpose of the Society
- Holdings of your society including, record collections, indexes, publications, etc.
- List of Look up Services
- Benefits of why to join your Society
- Society meetings
- Society projects
