Welcome to GenGuidesWiki
GenGuidesWiki is a place to share tips and how-to information on the archives, libraries, and web sites you use to research your family tree. To see what has been contributed so far check out our list of:
- Repositories (Archives, libraries, etc.)
- Archival collections
- Publications (Books, magazines, newspapers, etc.]
- Group Lists
You can also explore resources by starting with the list of countries below.
Please note that certain lists on each page are generated automatically based on the pages for the items in those lists. Such lists include the list of repositories on state pages and the archival collection list on the repository pages. If a page you just added is missing from the list please click the arrow to the left of the search box at the top of the page. Then click "refresh."
GenGuidesWiki has been created so you can share your knowledge with everyone and learn from others.
Think about how many different sources you use as you build your family tree. When you first start looking at a source you may not know much about it. You probably want to know why the record was created, how it is organized, and whether there is an index. Some basic answers may be contained in the resource's introductory text. However, as you use the source again and again you develop tips and tricks that fellow researchers could benefit from as they begin to use a resource. GenGuidesWiki is therefore a place to share your knowledge about the sources you use and learn from the tips shared by other researchers.
