Genealogy Research Communities (GRC) Content

  • Evaluate & move content from GRC Admins Google Site
    1. Move relevant data to the wiki in a way that applies to both GRC admins and the broader audience (complete)
    2. Shut down and delete Google Site (awaiting deletion)

How to use Social Media as a resource for Research and Sharing

  • Most of the current Social Media pages focus on use of social media by genealogy administrators
  • Add a separate section on existing wiki pages (Facebook, Twitter etc) that will explain the benefits of research help and sharing within social media for the average population

Communicating New Facebook Pages and Skype Groups

Categorize current Wiki pages into the Social Media category

  • Pages needing to be added to the category include the syllabi for several classes taught at conferences

Duplicate content of this project in other language versions of the wiki

  • Especially Spanish because we have a large volunteer group of Spanish speakers
