Instructions for creating a page for your center in the Wiki:

  1. Search box.jpg
    Do a search for your FHC in the wiki

    Check to see if your FHC has already been created in FamilySearch Wiki by typing in the name in the search box and clicking the search button. Most FHCs already have wiki pages created for them; they just need filling out.
      
  2. Create a page for your FHC

    1. In the Search box, type in the name of your FHC using the format of town, state, and the words "Family History Center." For example San Francisco California Family History Center. Use no commas between the name of the town and state.
    2. Click the search button.
    3. Under the Search Results heading, and above all the search results, you'll see the title you just typed in red. That shows there is no FHC under that title in the FamilySearch Wiki.
    4. Click on the red title and it will take you to an editing box that you will add the information about your FHC.
    5. In the tool bar, Click on the {T} symbol.
    6. A "Template Properties" box will appear.  In the box, type {{subst:FHC page outline}}.
    7. Click OK.
    8. In the Summary box, type "new page".
    9. Click "Save page."
  3. One more step is required. You need to assign your FHC to a Category.
    1. This is done by clicking on the "Edit This Page" button once again.
    2. In the tool bar, click on "Wikitext."
    3. At the top of the box, you will see the coding: {{FHC-stub}}{{FHCpage|location=}}.
    4. After the "=" sign after the word "location," type in the state or country your FHC is in. That will automatically assign your FHC to the correct category.
    5. Type in Summery: box "Added category."
    6. Click "Save page" and you are done. The FHC page has been created and ready for adding details.

  4. What you have created is a basic outline of what items or details a Family History Center might contain. It is up to you or others to fill in the details of what services your FHC has to offer. For additional help in filling out your wiki page, see Adding details to a Family History Center page.
