The project namespace or FamilySearch Wiki namespace is a namespace consisting of pages with information or discussion about FamilySearch Wiki. Its namespace number is four (4).

Pages in this namespace will always have the prefix FamilySearch Wiki:. They can also be reached by alias Project: the standard prefix used by MediaWiki, the software used to run the wiki.

Rules, policies, guidelines[edit | edit source]

Information and discussions[edit | edit source]

Many pages in FamilySearch Wiki namespace have nothing to do with rules, and thus do not belong in the above categories.

  • Some pages are designed for discussions, such as FamilySearch Wiki:Community Meetings sections.
  • Pages with "FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject" prefix form a WikiProject pseudo-namespace.
  • Many pages simply provide some information about FamilySearch Wiki (like this page). .

Before creating a new page[edit | edit source]

The project namespace contains many pages and a lot of information, and most FamilySearch Wikins probably have not read all of it. To make information easier to find, try to avoid creating new pages in the project namespace unnecessarily. If you want to add material, you might discover that the same thing already exists somewhere else.
