Overall Objectives

Under construction
To create entry pages in the wiki that more clearly illustrate and describe the use of the wiki as a genealogical research tool; how it can enhance both beginning and advanced family historians' understanding of where and how to search for information concerning their ancestors; and to give more information to users who might be interested in helping in specific ways.
We are focusing on the following types of users:
  • Researchers & Research Helpers (Consultants, etc.)
  • Contributors
  • Maintenance workers (we believe we can draw more people in, who want to help in small ways by doing maintenance work)
