Adopt a Wiki | FamilySearch.org

I just read an interesting blog posting from Family Search describing their new service to help genealogical societies by adopting a Wiki.  Click here to learn more.

Click here to view an example of what it might look like if we adopted a Wiki page.

It looks interesting but read the fine print.  There is some commitment that goes with the wiki page.

I submitted a request for us to adopt a Wiki page for the Pennington Research Association.  We’ll see what happens next.

I also signed up for their forums because it looks like a great resource and a great place to get our organization “out there” to the genealogy world.  I created a social Wiki page on the forums for “Pennington” as well to help get the word out to other Pennington researchers.

Click here to take a look at the “Pennington” social page and see what you think.  You can comment any of the discussions or add your own (if you join – which is free).
