"What is the FamilySearch Wiki and how can it help you with your genealogical research?"
presented by Jamie Mayhew

    The FamilySearch Wiki has 68,000+ pages about records, localities, subjects and methods that can help you find your ancestors. Learn about this lesser-known gem of the genealogy world, including a case study of an actual user. Learn how to join the wiki community to contribute your knowledge and share in a collaborative journey.

    Jamie McManus Mayhew, a researcher for over twenty years, specializes in Southern California research although her personal experience covers the Midwest, New England, and the Southern States. Jamie holds a PLCGS (Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies) in American Research from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. She is the moderator for the California pages on the FamilySearch Research Wiki and is a member of the FamilySearch Wiki Community Council. She is president of the California State Genealogical Alliance (CSGA) and past president of the Genealogical society of North Orange County California (GSNOCC) where she presently serves as Education Chairman. She has a B.A. in Sociology, an M.A. in Educational Technology, taught for over twelve years and finished up her last career as the Director of Educational Technology for a Southern California school district. She is a member of APG, SCCAPG, SCGS, CSGA, OCCGS, and a number of other societies.

We meet at the Robinson Auditorium complex on the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla. From North Torrey Pines Road, turn at Pangea Drive into UCSD.
