SOCIAL MEDIA & YOUR GENEALOGY! featured on the front cover of the new issue of Internet Genealogy highlights articles on "Genes Reunited" by Marian Press and "Five Ways to Use Social Media to Find Your Family" by Gena Philibert Ortega.
For those who attended Marian's recent BIFHSGO presentation the article reflects the same enthusiasm for Genes Reunited for those of us with UK ancestry which she suggests we at least visit, register and try the free search facility.
Gena Phillibert Ortega goes a bit beyond the scope of conventional social networking sites including the document sharing sites www.scribd.com and www.mediafire.com. Unfortunately the only strictly genealogical social networking site she mentions is the one she is associated with, www.genealogywise.com.
