We are glad you are here! You may want to begin with an Overview of the Wiki. There are many friendly and helpful community members willing to help you become familiar with the Wiki and family history. Find us in the Help section below.
Lots of Help!
Learning a new family history tool may be intimidating or even a little frightening. Don't worry. Lots of help is available in the forums, at live meetings, in Wiki articles and on the Community Center page.
Working together, we will find our ancestors! Imagine a place where you may ask any question about anything related to family history. Then imagine community members all over the world with their collective knowledge answering these questions. It is happening on the FamilySearch Forums. Post your questions by starting a new thread, post answers after registering with the FamilySearch Forums.
- Live Meetings
Some community members prefer receiving help on a conference call with fellow community members. If this is your preference, come to our Live Online Meetings and find helpful and friendly support in learning about using and contributing to the Wiki.
Visit our Help Articles to learn how to use, search and contribute to the Wiki.
Our Community Center has something for everyone in family history. This is a tour in itself!
