Facebook & Genealogy
August 4, 2018 @ 10:15 am - 12:30 pm EDT
Over the decades genealogists have communicated with fellow researchers using whatever tools were available, from newsletter queries to online message boards. Enter the 21st century and ‘social media’! Learn tips and techniques to use the newest genealogical tool — Facebook — from document translations to research questions to connecting with family. Michelle will show you how to effectively use Facebook for your genealogical research without getting lost in your newsfeed or overrun by notifications. You will learn about joining Groups and following Pages for your areas of interest, whether it’s a specific ethnicity or a geographic area, and learn tips for managing your level of interaction.
As always, our meetings are open to the public and start at 10:15 with a group discussion oriented to assist with solving your issues and helping to breaking down your brick walls. Kelli’s presentation will begin at 11:00am.
