FamilySearch Facebook Pages: Research Helps
As of January 2013, there are 108 Facebook pages set up to help with your research questions. The strength of the FamilySearch sponsored Facebook pages for getting help with your research questions is the community of Fans on every page! A lot of people around the world are looking for help with their genealogy and there are just as many people willing to help someone else. Through social media, the communication is almost instant and “Fans” of our genealogy research community pages are helping each other. The pages are devoted to a specific geographical location or type of research. Come “Like” a page or two, be part of the community that works together to help each other. Visit one of the pages and join in the fun! familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Research_Communities_on_Facebook
