Here are some ways to use Facebook in your family history research:
- Ask your research question.
- Team up with others doing similar research.
- Share your knowledge
To join a genealogy research community page register for a Facebook account at http://www.facebook.com/. After you have registered click here for an exhaustive list of country-specific resources and more suggestions.
Once you’ve found a page that you like, remember to click on the “Like” button so that you can follow the page as they post new resources.
I have found the Facebook research community to be very generous. Everyone helps each other. You can post questions and someone will almost always make a suggestion on where to look.
Here are some of the pages that I watch for my family history research. The Todd family came to Massachusetts in the early 1600’s and some left to come to Canada after the War of 1776. They had to flee for their lives, as they had stayed loyal to the King.
