What is a FamilySearch Wiki support missionary?
The Wiki Support Team's assignment is to keep the FamilySearch Wiki orderly, useful, and up-to-date. Here are some of the responsibilities you will have as Wiki support missionaries:
- Check all new additions to the Wiki.
- Answer questions from patrons, contributors and other missionaries and volunteers.
- Review, edit and organize pages, files, images, talk pages, categories, and templates to keep them up-to-date and clean of non-research materials.
- Teach new missionaries, each other, and other groups about the Wiki.
- Create, organize, and follow through to completion projects that improve the order and usefulness of the Wiki.
- Work as a team to develop ways to help improve the Wiki.
We are a team
- Part of your work will be to meet with other missionaries to discuss problems and come up with solutions.
- For meetings we use a program called Webex that will be discussed in the next lesson.
