A FamilySearch press release from today tells the story. I highly recommend that the FamilySearch Research Wiki becomes an integral part of your research plan.
“The FamilySearch Wiki published its 100,000th genealogical research article. The free online reference tool helps answer many common questions you might have when searching for ancestors in historical records worldwide. Each wiki article is written and updated by research specialists at the FamilySearch Family History Library and from the global genealogical community. The FamilySearch Wiki content continues to grow by about 100 articles per day. Check it out now at FamilySearch.org/wiki.”
I make use of it most days in my work. It’s a great way to learn more about records in FamilySearch and other places that deal with cities, counties, states, provinces, and countries. Then there are the pages for topics like naturalization, passenger records, vital records, and tons of others. It’s not merely a recitation of available records but also includes learning about the process.
