Information not allowed on the FHC page[edit | edit source]

  • Adding extensive information about training for Temple and Family History consultants is NOT appropriate, especially when links to this information includes doctrinal phrases of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
  • Information for priesthood leaders should NEVER be listed on a FHC wiki page as all direction is given from priesthood authorities in the area and not by family history centers/libraries.
  • The page should also NOT be used to communicate ward and stake goals or be used by the ward to give announcements or local leadership responsibilities.

NOTE: All changes to Family History Center pages are monitored by FamilySearch staff and inappropriate information as described above will be removed.

Doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints information in the Research Wiki[edit | edit source]

  • Doctrinal information of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does NOT belong on the pages of this Wiki.
The wiki audience is world-wide, to individuals of many faiths, who love genealogy for the sake of genealogy work. The FHC Wiki page is not a place to put information about doctrine. This includes PowerPoint presentations and other documents that may include doctrinal information in them. See the Wiki Purpose and Appropriate Topics for more information.
