Search the Wiki statement

For directions on locating civil registration records for the country where your ancestor lived, search the FamilySearch Wiki for articles by country using the terms "Archives and Libraries" and "Civil Registration."

RO copied to Wiki statement

NOTE: All information in the original research outline has been added to the FamilySearch Wiki, where it is both enhanced and updated by the genealogical community. .

Summary statement used so often

Fixing links and wording -- from FS and outlines to Wiki . .

Fixing links from the Wiki to the Wiki from external to internal links . .

Record Selection Table (non US)

Step 1. In column 1 select a research goal. Choose an ancestor you would like to know more about. What new information would you like to learn about that person?

Step 2. In column 2 find the types of records most likely to have the information you need.

> Read the FamilySearch Wiki articles about those types of records. They explain what the records might tell you, how to search them, and how to find them in the Family History Library Catalog. Some records are not at the library.

Step 3. In column 3 find additional record types that may be useful.

> Records of previous research (such as Genealogy, Biography, History, Periodicals, and Societies) are useful for most goals but are not listed unless they are especially helpful.

US Record Selection Table

Step 1. In column 1 select a research goal. Choose an ancestor you would like to know more about. What new information would you like to learn about that person?

Step 2. In column 2 find the types of records most likely to have the information you need.

> Read the FamilySearch Wiki articles about those types of records. They explain what the records might tell you, how to search them, and how to find them in the Family History Library Catalog. Some records are not at the library.

> Records of previous research (such as Genealogy, Biography, History, Periodicals, and Societies) are useful for most goals but are not listed unless they are especially helpful.

Step 3. In column 3 find additional record types that may be useful. If you do not find the desired information see the United States Record Selection Table for more suggestions.

Image category message

I noticed you have submitted some nice images to the Wiki recently.

We have a missionary who is categorizing the uncategorized files (images), which keep increasing at an enormous rate.

Will you mind taking an extra moment as you upload a file (image) to add a category to it?

  • There is an icon that looks like a "C" in a box.
  • (Sometimes the lines are jumbled and you have to imagine that's what it is.)
  • When editing, it is the one furthest to the right on the middle row of icons.

The category to add is usually the "middle level" locality that makes sense for the area: county in the US, for example, or the state or country when you don't know that "middle level." If you have questions contact me,

This will really help our missionaries.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
