FamilySearch volunteers facilitate free research help in more than 100 online communities. These Genealogy Research Communities have been created to help you and others researching in the same area to:
  • ask questions,
  • collaborate on your research, and
  • share knowledge you have gained as you've done your own research in a specific area.

Contents

Can you help-admin.jpg

FamilySearch's Genealogy Research Communities were introduced on Facebook in May 2011 and have been growing exponentially ever since. Currently the communities total over 15,000 fans (community members).

*The United States (North America) and Ethnic Research Communities are not listed alphabetically with the countries, but are under their respective headings.

Questions?

What is Facebook?

  • What is Facebook?
Facebook is a leading "social media" website where individuals communicate and interact with one another. You can learn more or register for an account at Facebook.com.

Facebook safety

  • I am concerned about Facebook safety and the privacy of my personal information. Where can I learn more?
Facebook has created a website about keeping yourself safe at Facebook Safety. If you are very concerned and would rather not use Facebook, you are welcome to Join a Skype Research Community instead.

Facebook vs. Skype

  • What's the benefit of joining Facebook vs. Skype?
Both will be places where you can go to collaborate with other researchers. You may prefer one or the other simply because you already use one tool or the other. Other benefits to each are:
  • Facebook is a leading social media website. You can join a group on Facebook and just visit the website when you wish. Or, if you'd like to be more involved, you can even sign up to receive a text message when something is posted to the page.
  • Skype is a chat program that allows for more detailed communications and interaction between individuals or groups of users. It allows groups to participate together in group discussions. It also allows for sending documents that others can review to help with evaluating records and, if desired, live video discussions or screen sharing.

Additional questions?

  • Additional questions?
  • Ask on the Discussion page. Click Edit this page and add your question.
  • Be sure to add ~~~~ after your question to sign your name so that someone can contact you if needed.

Suggest a new community

  • I would like to see a page started for _________, could you create one?
If you would like to have a page created for a location you are researching:
  • Go to the Discussion page and click to edit the page. (You must be signed in to edit.)
  • Add a note about which pages you'd like to see next.
  • Include whether or not you'd like to volunteer to be the administrator for the page.
  • After your request, add ~~~~. That will Sign your username to the request and allow us to notify you when a community is created for that area.

Volunteer as a Community Administrator

To add additional pages, we need administrators to help take care of them. If you would be interested in being an administrator, see Facebook and Skype Community Administrators for more information.
