Wiki Tour
What the Wiki is for and how to use it
Contributor Helps
Get started contributing to the Wiki
Community Center
Ways you can collaborate with others
Community links (on the right --> )
Include frequently used links for contributors
Those four sets of links will give you all the information you need to get started. (They are also the first links that you will let others know about as you help them to become contributors in the Wiki.)

Responsibilities of the Wiki Trainer

Within an Organization

Adopting Organizations
Your responsibility will be to work with individuals to help them be successful as they attempt to get started in the Wiki.
  • Work one-on-one with individual members to help them know how to contribute. The best ways to do this are to:
  1. Teach them about the four getting started links above
  2. Help them
  • Make sure they know where to go for help
Family History Centers or LDS Stakes
Your responsibilities will be to:
  1. Help create your center's Wiki page
  2. Teach the Family History Consultants:
  • About the Research Wiki and what it is
  • How to use the Wiki to help others research
  • How to contribute and add their knowledge to the Wiki
