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).

*Many of the communities listed below have not yet been created. Clicking the link for those communities will display the process of requesting a new community.

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