What is the FamilySearch research wiki?

FamilySearch, a non-profit organization, created and maintains the FamilySearch Research Wiki as a free, online genealogical guide. It contains links to genealogy databases, websites, other resources, research strategies, and genealogical guidance to assist in the search for your ancestors.

Articles include articles for countries around the world and topic articles that include pertinent genealogy record types. These articles explain how to use the record, what it contains, and how to find it. We use MediaWiki software to house this information.
