FamilySearch Wiki Needs Volunteers to Help...

Many Hands Make Light Work...

Everyone knows at least a little bit about something or someplace. The information you contribute could be exactly what someone else needs to connect with or add to their family history.

Pages and Projects That Need Your Help

Beginner Projects

Some examples of beginner projects might be checking for broken links or adding categories to pages.
  • Adding Categories
  • Repair Broken Links
  • Add information to your county and/or city pages.
  • Prepare county histories.
  • Repositories - what's in a repository of genealogical interest for Scotland?

Stub Pages

A "Stub" is a page containing a limited amount of information. If you need help learning about stub pages and how to add information to them, review the article FamilySearch Wiki:Stub.

Wanted Pages

A "Wanted Page" is a page that doesn't yet exist, but someone created a link to it, showing that they want a page on that topic created. For on-line classes to learn how to create a new page or wiki article click here: Creating a Wiki Article Searching for and Creating Articles.

Specific Needs for Your Area

  • County and town histories often contain biographical sketches of local citizens, including important genealogical information. This may be one of the best sources of information for some families.

Other Help Wanted Projects

If there are other areas of the FamilySearch Wiki you would like to volunteer for, we have a general Wiki Help Wanted page that lists additional projects and areas where help is needed.

Moderator Needed

A moderator is needed to work with and support contributors in Scotland. Would you like to help as a moderator?

I am currently volunteering as indexer and arbitrator, lived in Scotland all my life and would love to help if you still require this assistance. Please advise and will send contact details if you can supply email address
