WikiProject Washington Wiki Project Washington Tasks - Family History Centers
Description[edit | edit source]
Note: FamilySearch has had Family History Centers for years. They are adding Discovery Centers and partnering with libraries and archives. These are under the "umbrella term" of FamilySearch Centers. The names of existing centers will not be changed—at least not yet.
The purpose of this task is to help users, and includes:
- list and link to the wiki page for each FamilySearch Center in (or near) each county in Washington
- update the center's wiki page with contact information (address, phone #) and hours
- Indicate with an asterisk (*) on the COUNTY page when a Center has the FHC Portal. (Ancestry.com, HeritageQuestOnline, Fold3, etc.).
- If none have it in this county, identify the nearest Center (or library) OUT of this county that does have it.
This is an intermediate task and requires using wikitext.
