FGS Conference — FamilySearch Wiki

During the FGS Conference, FamilySearch made a con­certed effort to engage peo­ple with their wiki, which is at The goal of the FamilySearch wiki is to build a com­mon loca­tion for research recommendations.

It has been a while since I looked at the FamilySearch Wiki.

The site now has more than 40,000 entries. Like any Wiki, espe­cially at the begin­ning stages, there is a wide vari­ety of qual­ity, and espe­cially of com­plete­ness. However, it is already a very help­ful place to go to find out about research­ing in a new locality.

I went to the North Carolina Barn Raising (actu­ally started in May 2009) and signed up for the North Carolina Archives and Libraries and North Carolina Bibliography pages, and I have made some edits. As with any wiki, edit­ing is quick and easy, and can be done in a format-based view or in a wiki code view.

This is com­mu­nity work. Join the community!
