October 11 Links Found by Using FamilySearch Wiki – The FamilySearch Wiki is a tool for finding information about subjects, records that may have been generated about your ancestors, and the places in which the records might be found. The Wiki has information from the United States, as well as from 244 countries.

October 18 Photos in Memories – See photos of your ancestors that others have added and learn how to add and label photos in FamilySearch.

October 25 Life Sketch, Stories, and Documents in Memories – Learn how to share the items you have in your possession so that others can learn more about their ancestors.

Photos and documents enable us to draw closer to our ancestors, enrich our understanding of their lives, and give us a sense of belonging to something bigger than ourselves. These memories are then preserved and they enable their posterity to learn more about their ancestors.
