Many Hands Make Light Work...

In a few very short years the FamilySearch Wiki has become one of the premiere genealogical research information websites. For the Wiki to continue to grow we need your help.

Everyone knows at least a little bit about a genealogy relate topic or location. The information you contribute could be exactly what someone else needs to connect with or add to their family history.

Phase 1 - U.S. State Articles

The first area of focus for the Volunteer Project is U.S. States and territories.  The project will soon expand to countries worldwide.

If you would like to add what you know about a particular place click on the state you are interested in on the map below.  You will be taken to that State's wiki page where you can add your information.
