The Group we call Wiki Support has many roles but the main one is to keep the Wiki Clean. So Special pages have been created to help us and others understand the need for the Team to use these pages. The Main Hub for these pages is in the Navigation bar on the right of this page under Wiki Support. Please click into the link and follow to the Hub. We will be introducing many of these items and many of these pages will be covered in more detail in the future.

The Wiki Support Team has as a goal to keep the Family Search Wiki orderly, useful and up to date. There are many duties that help us support the Wiki. The following are some of the major duties of the Support Team. Just read the bold items. Also ask for Questions.

  • Check all new additions to the Wiki, and all the new additions to pages.
  • Answer questions from patrons, contributors and other missionaries and volunteers.
  • Review, edit and organize many pages, files, images, talk pages, categories, and templates to keep them up to date and clean of non-research materials.
  • Teach new missionaries, each other and other groups about the Wiki.
  • Create, organize, and complete projects that improve the order of the Wiki.
  • Work as a team to discuss ways to help improve the Wiki.
