Dear Wiki Users,
Because of excessive spamming on our Wiki, we now require that all users (new and current) who wish to contribute and edit the wiki contact us through a Google form. We then assess each request to determine if they are legitimate users and grant editing and page creating rights.
How to Edit
- All users who are moderators or have other Wiki roles have automatically been given rights to edit and create pages in the Wiki.
- If you are a regular contributor, please log into the Wiki to see if you have editing rights. You will need to be on a regular wiki page (such as this page or this test page) and not the main page of the Wiki. You will know that you have editing rights if you see any of the tabs, Edit and Edit Source in the right hand corner of the screen.
- If you do not have the option to edit at this time, please contact us immediately by clicking here. We are working diligently to grant permission as soon as possible and once you have been given access to edit, we will notify you through the email address you supply us.
- If you are new to the wiki and would like to edit, you will need to create a free FamilySearch Wiki account. Use this link to create your account. After you create the account, fill out this form. We will email you when you have been given permission to edit.
Keeping the spamming problem under control has caused a great strain on FamilySearch resources. All edits by spammers have been reverted or their pages deleted. We hope that this new system will stop the problem. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes for our regular contributors. Please note that your status will not change once you have been granted access to edit the Wiki.
Thank you for your support and patience.
