Forskningshjälp för Sverige - Pilotprojekt

Är du intresserad av att hjälpa till och besvara forskarfrågor via telefon eller chatt?

Forskarkonsulter är volontärer som bidrar frivilligt med sin tid för att svara på frågor om forskning inom områden där de har kunskaper och erfarenhet. För tillfället finns det två pilot-projekt på gång som svarar på frågor via telefon. Det är i:
USA:s delstat Ohio eller om
1940 US Census.
Chatt-funktion i projekten kommer snart att läggas till.

Är du redan en volontär? Se "Komma igång" hjälpen här nedanför.

Vill du lära dig mer om att bli volontär? Se artikeln FAQ, eller registrera dig här

Template:Live Research Help Menu

This page gives information to volunteers who are interested in answering patron questions during our Live Ohio Research Help pilot.

Vad gör en volontär?'

  1. Som en volontär, kommer du att hjälpa forskare i Sverige att besvara deras forskarfrågor.
  2. Du kommer att gå till Startsidan för Pilot-projekt och "logga in" (Sign in) när du är tillgänglig för att ta emot samtal eller att chatta.
  3. När en forskare med en fråga ringer det avgiftsfria telefonnumret, kommer FamilySearch dirigera samtalet till dig eller någon annan av de volontärer som är inloggade. Den som ringer ser aldrig din personliga information eller telefonnummer; du identifieras enbart som en volontär för FamilySearch.
  4. För att avsluta ta emot samtal, loggar du ut.

Hur mycket tid tar det att vara en volontär?

Du kan volontär-arbeta hur mycket eller hur lite tid du önskar. Och du väljer själv när du vill ta emot samtal.

Vilka är det som får hjälp i detta pilot-projekt?

Alla användare av FamilySearch.org; alla personer som är intresserade av att lära sig mer om sin Svenska förfäder.

Kan jag hjälpa dom genom en chatt-funktion online, eller bara via telefon?

I början, är telefon den enda valmöjligheten, men när vi lägger till chatt, kommer du att ha möjlighet att välja någon av dessa svarsmöjligheter.

Fritt FamilySearch konto

Before you volunteer, you need a free FamilySearch account to register a user name and password.

Vilka typer av frågor kommer du att få?

Frågorna som användarna kommer att ha varierar. Undersökningar om de generella typerna av frågor visar att topp fem är:
  1. Hur hittar jag föräldrarna till en person?
  2. Hur hittar jag mer information om en person?
  3. Hur hittar jag en födelse-, vigsel-, eller döds-uppgift/uppteckning?
  4. Hur hittar jag immigration eller emigration uppgifter/uppteckningar?
  5. Hur hittar jag mer information om en familj?

Finns det träning?

Yes. After you sign up, we’ll teach you about the tools you’ll need to be successful. It will include what your best resources are to help the patron, information about how our phone system works, what to do when you can't help the patron, and etc.

What qualifications are needed to be a volunteer?

The pilot is available for individuals with Ohio research background any level of research experience. You do need a free FamilySearch or LDS Account to be able to help, but you do not need to be LDS. This account also gives you free access to more records on FamilySearch.org. Register for a FamilySearch or LDS Account here.

What is the compensation for volunteers?

This pilot is designed as a volunteer program where individuals donate their time and knowledge to others free of charge. The intention of the program is to create a free service experience where individuals can gain assistance with their research. Researchers should not expect to have all of their research done for them, but volunteers are welcome to give as much research assistance as they would like.

Volunteer for Places Other Than Ohio

If you have experience in areas besides Ohio and would like to help, send us an e-mail at research@familysearch.org and share your research experience. We’ll let you know when we are ready to start the pilot for your area of interest.

How to Sign Up to Be a Volunteer

Sign up to be a volunteer by filling out this form, or e-mail us at research@familysearch.org with questions.

Forskningshjälp Live: Hjälp för att besvara frågor

You may have some of the following questions as you begin helping others:


  • What information should I gather first on a call?
When answering a question, it helps to get some information right at the beginning:
  1. Their objective for their research.
  2. The locality where their ancestor lived.
  3. The time period when their ancestor lived in that locality.
  4. The record or type of information that you want to find. For example, you want the parents' names, or a birth date or place, or the spouse's full name.
If they are unsure about dates and places, they will need to come forward a generation and choose an ancestor about whom they have more information. Knowing about a more recent ancestor will give them a place to start to look for an earlier generation.
  • What records does FamilySearch have online?
  • Where does FamilySearch keep research guidance information?
The FamilySearch Research Wiki is a great starting place when helping a patron. Pages are created for the various jurisdictions where records could exist. Check for records in all areas.
For 1940 questions, there are many wiki pages, this is the main one:

If you are searching for someone who lived in Adams County, Ohio, you can check:

  • What do I do when I don't know how to help the patron?
  1. Ask in one of our Skype groups or Forums.
  2. Walk the patron to one of these resources, depending on what they are comfortable with, to have them ask the question here:
Ohio Specific Resources:
  • How much time should I spend with each researcher?
There could be a wide range, and lots of exceptions to this general rule, but if you are spending much more than 30 minutes with a patron, you may want to refer them to other places for additional help. Our goal is to teach the researcher something that will help them learn how to research in the future rather than do all the work for them.
  • I do genealogy work professionally. Can I tell researchers about that?
We don't want to mix these free services with discussions about professional work. In the future, we will discuss possible referral procedures if researchers are asking for professional assistance.
