We have 11 language wikis available to view: English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Italian, Sweden, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese

These language wikis vary in size and content available to view. The top 4 with the most content are English, Portuguese, Spanish and French.

Regarding the Spanish wiki: We now have 3,979 pages in the Spanish wiki. We only have 2 missionaries that speak Spanish so we are limited on what we can do. But we are currently translating Historical Records articles and adding them to the Spanish Wiki. Historical Records pages are those that are found by clicking, Learn More when you are looking at a record collection on FamilySearch. Example: https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Ohio_Death_Index_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records)

Access to language wikis:

  • If you are on the main page of the English wiki, there are links at the bottom of the page to the different language wikis.
  • If a wiki page is in more than one language, you will find a link at the bottom of the page listing the languages that are available, such as on the Brazil Genealogy wiki page: https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Brazil_Genealogy
  • For most languages, you can also get to the corresponding wiki by clicking on the Search tab, then clicking on Wiki link at the bottom of the list.

Jurisdictions: First jurisdiction refers to the country level. The second jurisdiction would refer to the next level down that the country is divided by the government. For the U.S., it is states. For England, it is counties. For France, it is departments.
