VGS Social Media

Many users think that social media was made for family historians. We as genealogists actually enjoy finding distant relatives and may want to contact and keep in touch with them. Using mailing lists and message boards at one time was the means to find relatives and old friends. Times have changed! Social media now helps us to find those relatives and friends in ways that were not possible in the days of mailing lists and message boards.
The VGS has created several social media sites to assist members with their research. Do you know that Facebook alone has thousands of "groups" just on genealogy?
Learn more about social media & genealogy through the Facebook Community, "Social Media and Genealogy."
