 +
=== Let’s Get Acquainted with the Family Search Wiki (WIK-ee)  ===
 +
 
 +
Family Search users don’t always think to look at this valuable tool because they aren’t sure what it is and how valuable it can be to our research efforts. &nbsp;So, in Family Search’s words:&nbsp;“The FamilySearch Wiki is not about finding the names of your ancestors. It is not, in fact, about finding people at all.
 +
 
 +
*'''''The Wiki is about finding records that may have been generated about your ancestors and the places in which the records might be found''''' <br>*It is a vast record depository of the paper trail that people leave behind long after they are gone. <br>*The Wiki has records from the United States as well as from 244 countries. <br>*Here you will be able to find documents such as census records, marriage records, birth records and death records and much more. <br>*Probate documents are often very informative and may help you in your search. There is an extensive list of United States military records on the Wiki .”
 +
 
 +
Recently a friend in Illinois went into the FamilySearch Wiki and found phone numbers for the Surrogate Court in New York that held wills. She found six missing wills!
 +
 
 +
Take time to explore the opening page of this site there are tutuorials and examples and lots of help in learning the Wiki. Got stuck in your research? Look to the Wiki for help.&nbsp;'''''How do I find the FamilySearch Wiki?'''''

Family Search Blog

A terrific resource to keep up on what is going on and available in Family Search FamilySearch Blog

Let’s Get Acquainted with the Family Search Wiki (WIK-ee)

Family Search users don’t always think to look at this valuable tool because they aren’t sure what it is and how valuable it can be to our research efforts.  So, in Family Search’s words: “The FamilySearch Wiki is not about finding the names of your ancestors. It is not, in fact, about finding people at all.

  • The Wiki is about finding records that may have been generated about your ancestors and the places in which the records might be found
    *It is a vast record depository of the paper trail that people leave behind long after they are gone.
    *The Wiki has records from the United States as well as from 244 countries.
    *Here you will be able to find documents such as census records, marriage records, birth records and death records and much more.
    *Probate documents are often very informative and may help you in your search. There is an extensive list of United States military records on the Wiki .”

Recently a friend in Illinois went into the FamilySearch Wiki and found phone numbers for the Surrogate Court in New York that held wills. She found six missing wills!

Take time to explore the opening page of this site there are tutuorials and examples and lots of help in learning the Wiki. Got stuck in your research? Look to the Wiki for help. How do I find the FamilySearch Wiki?

  • Familysearch.org Search (drop down menu) Wiki
    *(open FamilySearch.org and go to Search at top of page which will give you a drop down menu and then click on Wiki)
    *How to Use the Wiki -- Wiki_Help
    *About the Wiki -- Find an ancestor using the wiki
