Thank you for being willing to take on the responsibilities of a Research Wiki Trainer! As a Wiki Trainer, you'll teach others about contributing to the Wiki. You may be:

  1. A volunteer with a Family History Center, or 
  2. Part of an organization that has adopted pages in the Wiki, or
  3. One who would like to help others learn how to use the wiki to enhance their research, or
  4. One who would like to help others learn how to contribute to the wiki.

In any case, we appreciate your service!

Getting Started as a Wiki Trainer

Learn about the Wiki
If you are new to the Wiki, you'll want to be aware of important links that will teach you what you need to know about the Wiki:
  1. Wiki Tour
    What the Wiki is, and how to use it
  2. Contributor Helps
    Get started contributing to the Wiki
  3. Community (Links found in the Community drop down menu in the right margin)
    Community Meetings
    Guiding Principles


Responsibilities of the Wiki Trainer

  • Help members of your organization (FHC consultants & patrons) learn why and how to use the wiki in their genealogical research
  • Create and/or update your organization’s (or FHC’s) wiki web page
  • Assist those who desire to contribute their own knowledge to the Wiki.

Teaching Resources and Suggestions

For Organizations - Selecting a Wiki Trainer

As the leader of an organization interested in partnering with FamilySearch to add research guidance to the Wiki, you may be looking for someone who can help train others within your organization about how to use the Wiki.
There are many qualities that could make a good Wiki Trainer. It would help for a Wiki Trainer to be:
  • Comfortable with computers and technology (a background in building websites or involvement with Wikis in the past is a plus, but not necessary, since this can be learned)
  • Willing to train others - either individually or in a group setting
It would also be helpful if the Wiki Trainer were comfortable with sharing their opinion on how they feel things should be, as it can sometimes be hard to make changes to the Wiki and make decisions if you're not used to sharing your opinion. Your Wiki Trainer could even be someone who is young, or even new to genealogy, and would be a good way for someone new to the work to get involved and learn more about family history.
