This is a project to help professional genealogists market themselves for free on FamilySearch Wiki.

Get noticed. It's free!

In 2011, FamilySearch Wiki received an average of 306,076 unique visitors per month. How many Websites attract that many genealogy visitors and allow you to list your professional genealogy research services for free?

Appropriate marketing on FamilySearch Wiki

  • Post your professional genealogy education (degree), credentials, experience, associations, and business license compliance on your user page.
  • Attach sub-pages to your user page which include featured services, examples of client reports, and customer testimonials, continuing education in professional genealogy.

Inappropriate marketing on FamilySearch Wiki

  • Don't add an entry to a page like Ohio Vital Records that says "Joe Genius is a professional genealogist who does fee-based vital records lookups in Ohio vital records. Click here to go to his user page and see his services and fee schedule."
