About Me

Robin Foster

My name is Robin Foster. I have been researching my own genealogy and helping others find resources to document ancestors since 1985. I have been a contributor to the wiki since February 20, 2008.

Community Support
I served a part-time family history mission from 2007 to 2014. In 2011, I helped to create the FamilySearch Genealogy Research Communities on Facebook. On April 30, 2013 to June 23, 2014, I served as a FamilySearch Wiki Support Team Lead. I served as a family history center director.

Current Wiki Projects

I am a member of the South Carolina Genealogical Society, Columbia Chapter. In my spare time, I help to promote genealogy in online communities on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google Plus. I write and post about ways that emerging technology can be useful in genealogical research, and I enjoy helping researchers discover historical records not commonly used in genealogical research such as owner of Genealogy! Just Ask!

I am a regular presenter for libraries, genealogical societies, and I maintain several blogs.
