If you haven’t explored genealogy on Facebook, you may be missing a huge amount of information and collaborative help. Facebook is so much more than “what I had for lunch” and pictures of grandchildren and cute cats.
Katherine R. Willson has compiled a list of more than 10,000 Facebook pages and groups related to genealogy and history. You can download the Genealogy on Facebook List, a PDF file with 288 pages of links to these pages. The table of contents alone takes up more than 8 pages.
My limited experience with genealogy groups on Facebook has been completely positive. I’ll be scouring this list for helpful pages.
Here is Katherine's own Facebook page.
