FamilySearch Wiki Research Articles

There is a wealth of useful information for Beginning and Intermediate genealogy researchers on the LDS FamilySearch Wiki Research Page.

There are categories for:

* Get Started with this site
* Where to start
* Research Analysis
* Organization and Documentation
* Getting Started in Research
* Technology

There are some interesting articles on this list - I carefully read:

* Genealogical Proof Standard

* Cite Your Sources (Source Footnotes) -- has examples

* Organizing Your Files

* Major Databases for Beginning United States Research

* Rookie Mistakes

* Solving Tough Research Problems—Overcoming Brick Walls

There are many more articles. Check them out.

Thanks Randy. I hadn't read all of them. Really loved the one on Rookie Mistakes. Remember some of those well and keep trying to save other family members from making the same ones but they don't want to seem to listen.

Randy you are so right, I discovered this Wiki maybe only month ago and was fascinated at the level of useful information. I am adding the link to my genealogy class slides. Thanks for pointing out these specific articles!
