Welcome to Familypedia!

AboutTutorialHelp

(The largest semantic wiki for genealogy.)
We are currently working on 234,510 articles and 354676 other pages.
Here you can keep your family history research
organized, evergreen, accessible, and collaboration-ready.
Join us in this important and exciting work!

This is a place where you can create articles about your ancestors and can easily link them to other articles about relatives and where and when they lived. You can work wholly within this wiki, or you can link your articles to external sites on the world wide web. And because this is a wiki format, you can work collaboratively with others to create a network of articles about your ancestors and about those they lived and worked with — or simply about people you find interesting. It is our hope that, as this site grows, we will gradually be able to link our ancestors into a network that goes far beyond the simple nuts and bolts of who lived where and when.

The focus of this site is on capturing the details of the lives of our ancestors, both those historically significant people and the everyday people rarely listed in encyclopaedias, histories, or even "people's histories". Along the way, the site will also provide information about the historical and social context in which our ancestors found themselves.

This site aspires to be truly global, with active contributors and information from several cultures and languages, and all four Hemispheres.

We have some of the latest wiki software to make page display easy and minimize duplication of work. Semantic MediaWiki has been used to make data entry as easy as on a commercial program and to make data retrieval and presentation easier still. Check out Help:Articles/start.

Sign in and join us. Plenty of friendly genealogists here to help if you get stuck! And be bold; mistakes can be reversed if necessary.

Featured Article
Hanna Emerson (1657-1738) - Hannah Dustin (or Duston) - Famous Early American Indian Fighter - First Female American to get a Memorial Statue. One of 15 children herself, this colonial Massachusetts Puritan mother of nine was taken captive, with her newborn daughter, by Abenaki Native Americans during King William's War, during the Raid on Haverhill (1697), in which 27 colonists were killed. While detained on an island in the Merrimack River in present-day Boscawen, New Hampshire, she killed and scalped ten of the Native American family members holding them hostage, with the assistance of two other captives. ---read more

Cultural sensitivity: Some cultures are sensitive to the recording of certain types of information. For instance, some tribes of Australian Aborigines forbid the viewing of images of dead people. Australian Aborigines request that pages with pictures of deceased Aboriginal people be clearly marked as such so that the user can choose if they wish to view the page. See guidelines on cultural protocol.

Alternative spellings: Where you are familiar with alternative spellings (eg White/Whyte), please note them on the surname article page and if possible create and/or link to those categories. Other readers may not have known of the alternatives or thought to look there. See Help:Surname for more details about how surname categories work)

    Our usual page view tally is between 6,000 and 10,000, from what I vaguely recall of skimming the list I get each day. I wonder what gave us a sudden boost to 12,374 yesterday and 11,238 today. I suspect that it was nothing to do with the frequent recent winner, Eduard Einstein (1910-1965), who was in 8th place with only 340 views on the list I br…

    I've contacted FANDOM after noticing that automatic welcomes were being "signed" by an admin who has not edited in the past 6 weeks, whereas it is meant to use the name of the most-recently-editing admin. I also mentioned that numerous new contributors don't get the automatic welcome at all.

    Brigham Young

    September 28, 2017 by MainTour

    I've just finished assembling all of the relevant family information for the Mormon Prophet Brigham Young (1801-1877). Because of his many plural marriages (55 wives and 59 children) this is probably one of the most complex personal profiles for any individual born in North America. I post this blog notice so that the Familypedia developers can ha…
