What is the Foundation for On-Line Genealogy (FOLG)? FOLG is a non-profit Utah corporation dedicated to the above mission.

Current project FOLG sponsors the development and hosting of WeRelate.org, the world's largest genealogy wiki. Access to WeRelate is free to the public.

How can I get involved? Anyone can edit, add to and create wiki pages. Please feel free to share what you know at WeRelate. We are looking for volunteers in the following areas:

  • Software developers to help with open-source projects: wiki implementation and web search. Contact Dallan at dallan@werelate.org
  • Volunteers to write research guides, tips, and strategies for US States and various countries. Contact Solveig at solveig@werelate.org
  • Volunteers to oversee and monitor the integrity of wiki pages. Contact Solveig at solveig@werelate.org

Future projects We plan to create open-source tools to help archives and genealogical organizations put genealogical data on-line.
