Facebook has become part of my daily life and, I bet, yours. It’s almost hard to imagine how we navigated the online world without it. I use it for lots of things, but I don’t use it a whole lot to further my genealogy research. I’d like that to change.
I know that Facebook offers a lot to genealogists and I’m wondering how you all use it. I belong to a few genealogy-related Facebook groups that I find really helpful when I take the time to read them. They are:
- The Organized Genealogist
- Technology for Genealogy
- Genealogy! Just Ask!
- Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK USA)
- Genealogy Chit-Chat
- Missouri Genealogy Network
- St. Louis Genealogical Society
I’m also a part of one family group, which was helpful when a reunion was being organized last year. And, of course, I have the Organize Your Family History Facebook page.
Are there other genealogy-related groups or communities that you recommend? Do you use Facebook to find cousins or otherwise further your research? I’d love to hear about it!
Unfortunately, I’ve just realized that the Submit button for comments disappeared! I apologize to anyone who wanted to comment and couldn’t. I have created a workaround, so you can post now, but am hoping to get back to my usual comments form soon.
