FamilySearch has recently reached a rather significant milestone. Its Research Wiki has just published its 75,000th article. While the number is impressive by itself, the idea that should grab our attention and make us go WOW is the fact that such a large community of genealogists and family historians have worked together to pool their collective knowledge into a single web based library and made it all available to the public—for FREE. It’s like having a worldwide encyclopedia of knowledge for genealogists at your fingertips. This is really big news!
