FamilySearch Wiki Needs Volunteers to Help...

Many Hands Make Light Work...

Everyone knows at least a little bit about something or someplace. The information you contribute could be exactly what someone else needs to connect with or add to their family history.

Volunteer Wiki


Pages & Projects That Need Your Help

Specific Needs for Ireland

  • Beginning Irish Research - This page already contains a lot of information from captures from old Research Forms. The information needs to be consolidated and rewritten into a usable document.

Beginner Projects

Some examples of beginner projects might be checking for broken links or adding categories to pages.
  • Adding Categories
  • Repair Broken Links
  • Add information to your county and/or city pages.
  • Prepare Ireland histories.
  • Repositories - what's in a repository of genealogical interest in Ireland.
  • Outside company providing content ... we are putting in the wiki for formatting.

Stub Pages

A "Stub" is a page containing a limited amount of information. If you need help learning about stub pages and how to add information to them, review the article FamilySearch Wiki:Stub. Follow a link below to help fill out pages that need more information:
Instructions for moderator: To see all of the stub articles for your locality, review.

Wanted Pages

A "Wanted Page" is a page that doesn't yet exist, but someone created a link to it, showing that they want a page on that topic created. For online classes to learn how to create a new page or wiki article click here: Creating a Wiki Article Searching for and Creating Articles.
Follow the red links below to create a requested Wanted page:

Maintaining Existing Pages
