  • Click on the FamilySearch Wiki tab.
  • Enter the article title into the search box.
  • Place a pound sign (#) immediately after the article title.
  • Directly following the pound sign, add the "exact" header name to which you desire to link.
  • Click Done and save your changes.
  • For example: McDonald County, Missouri Genealogy#County Courthouse.
