What the FamilySearch Research Wiki Is[edit | edit source]

The Wiki is a free, online genealogical guide created and maintained by FamilySearch. It contains links to genealogy databases and online resources, research strategies, and other genealogical guidance to assist you in the search of your ancestor. Articles included are locality pages for countries around the world and topic pages that include pertinent genealogy record types explaining how to use the record, what it contains, and how to find it.

Search Places and Topics, Not People[edit | edit source]

The Wiki does not contain specific individuals but instead lists genealogical resources that may list an individual. When searching the Research Wiki, search for the place your ancestor was born, lived, and died. If your ancestor, Robert Palmer Jones was born in Sussex, England, type in Sussex in the search field. The Sussex, England page will contain links to online databases and have Sussex topic pages regarding genealogical records pertaining to Sussex.
