Specific Needs for Your Area

  • 1. State, 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.
  • 2. If you are interested in being a moderator for a state or country, please contact the Support Team

Other Help Wanted Projects

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