Using Facebook Groups For Genealogy

You have read from my previous blogs about me having “someone from my FB group” helping me out from time to time with information, document translations, etc.  Well, I am here to tell you, they are F A B U L O U S!

Along with the historical societies, archives, and #ancestry websites, I highly recommend joining a Facebook Group.  There are many kinds; groups and pages.  There are groups of almost every related parts of genealogy (geographical, linguistic, ethnic, etc.).  Find the ones that work for you, you can always leave the group if it doesn’t “work” for you.  But, the main thing I do recommend is that you read the group rules FIRST.  So many just pop on and say “Can you translate this document for me?” and post the picture.  There are guidelines for a reason, so read them.

Below are the groups I am currently a member of with the top 15 I use the most:
