England Barnraising for FamilySearch Wiki
I just got an E-mail from Alan Mann, the Community Manager for the FamilySearch Community Services Team, about an England Barn raising at the FamilySearch Wiki. A wiki barn raising is a short, focused community effort to create or revise content relating to a single topic such as "getting started with genealogical research in England." To quote the E-mail, "During this February 2009 barn raising, volunteers will be revising the England Portal, topic pages for the four basic English record types and adding pages for the major English research sites. At the end of the barn raising, the wiki will contain information about the latest and best basic records and web sites to use in finding English ancestors."
