What if the respected genealogical resources The Source: A Guidebook to American Genealogy and Red Book: American State, County and Town Sources could be updated on a more regular basis? With all of the information these two books provide us in our family history research, the details can easily become outdated. Well now these two exhaustive guides to American genealogy can be updated regularly with the launch of the beta version of the Ancestry.com Wiki.
The Ancestry.com Wiki is a new section on Ancestry.com available to subscribers and non-subscribers alike. It offers detailed and useful information about family history records, research, and places pulled from The Source: A Guidebook to American Genealogy and Red Book: American State, County, and Town Sources.
These two well-known Ancestry.com books have been guiding genealogists for more than twenty years, but by making this content available in wiki format, we’re inviting you, our vibrant community of passionate genealogists, to update, expand on and even add to it, making it a go-to resource for guidance and information.
In addition, the Ancestry.com Wiki offers links to Ancestry.com databases, as well as Web pages for genealogical societies, archives, and other valuable resources. It allows for additional resources to be added, so that others in the family history community can benefit from the information you provide. If you’ve ever had questions about family history, or if you have answers that others can benefit from, the Ancestry.com Wiki is the place to visit.
