    2. Julie Goucher
    3. Hello, I have a personal account & a page that receives copies if my blog posts. Anyone can 'like' the page. I also have 2 surname projects on Facebook linked to my Registered one name studies (www.one-name.org). I also host a group that is going to be used to support a weekly theme that I will be sharing via my own web page & via Geneabloggers. The Group is called the book of me, written by you on Facebook & is currently a closed group - so anyone can see who is a member, but only members can post. Once the discussions get underway the group will change to secret so that people can feel free to discuss without concerns. You can read the various details via my blog - www.anglersrest.net or via my website - www.anglers-rest.net Hopefully they will give details & background to the project of prompts which effectively deals with recording your history for future generations. The Facebook group should be easily found via the search or via the links above. Currently on my iPhone & about to head off to bed (it's the wee hours in the UK) I hope that has given some ideas & if you have any questions, drop me an email.

    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hello listers, I am a HUGH attendee of Webinars hosted by Legacy. Most of the lecturers are advising to "put your stuff on Facebook." I am on the fence. I see Facebook as a great social media for the living. I am not new to Facebook, I have a personal account that I play games and keep up with my high school friends that live 400+ miles from my current residence. I am trying to build a "persona" for the lack of a better word for the four divisions (grandparents) of my family history research. And if works well, I plan on adding hubby's grandparents in the future. I have joined a few genealogy based groups on Facebook. I am trying to decide what should be my next course of action. My ultimate goal is to have these "divisions" to be a magnet to find family members to help fill in the blanks. Any suggestions? Do I need to start a group as opposed to an account? Should I post just information about non-living relatives? This is another fence area for me, I am thinking this should be in "the cloud" or protected on "Scribd" or some similar media. Another thought is to have a group for living relatives to capture pictures, etc. to create a "living" book for that family. Post information in my database with blanks for the living to fill in or update. Groups are by invitation, correct? Postings to said group are only for subscribed eyes? I am finding Facebook groups great for expanding my education on genealogy subjects. Have not researched locality groups at this point in time, but this may be my project for today, at least near future. These are my views and gleaning(s). Hoping to start a meaningful conversation. Happy Hunting! Susan Penn Groover -- Smoky Mountains of Tennessee -- Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living. -- Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.

    1. Re: [FACEBOOK-GENEALOGY] Is Facebook a good research tool
    2. JLA
    3. For me Facebook hasn't help me a bit in my genealogical research - that's not to say it won't in the future but to date not a thing. However the same is true for all the mailing lists, message boards etc. The only Internet tool that worked for me was a personal webpage. Especially for my fiancee's family it went a long way to clearing up a 100 year old mystery. Some people are really dumb when it comes to Facebook no-doubt-a-bout-it. It's this stupidity that aids law enforcement when nincompoops start bragging. The first security measure has to begin with the individual, don't post anything personal -- the Internet never forgets. As you say even the most innocent comment could leave you open to a home invasion. Like everything else on the there is good and there is bad. I don't much care for FB as a form of social networking - but then I like my socializing face-to-face. It's a great place to host photos. It would be great if someone could post a successful FB genealogical experience.

    1. [FACEBOOK-GENEALOGY] Is Facebook a good research tool
    2. Nivard Ovington
    3. Slight delay due to domestic crisis :-( Joan asked why I was sceptical about the virtues of facebook I previously posted that I am still unconvinced that facebook is a useful research tool Perhaps useful was the wrong word, safe, secure or sensible are perhaps better ones I am always open to suggestions and advice on new ways to further my research and to enable me to help others, that is the reason I am on this list My experience so far with facebook has not been a good one, it appears to me that many people have not much of an idea how to use it, or how to keep data private where its needed I have seen some very unguarded comments on FB and some downright insecure (ie going away for a holiday for two weeks, see you when I get back type of posts) Some have posted pictures of their young children and comments about family members which lead you to think they are either very crass people or do not realise their comments are open to the public The only use I have come across which can and has been beneficial are the FB pages on places where people have added photos and comments, they I think are great but as a means of actually researching I cannot see a use for FB As far as I can see it, to be useful the FB page needs to be open for others to find it but private to stop all and sundry reading everything on the page My purpose in coming on a list such as this is to try and understand how others use it and hopefully convince me I am wrong So far I have seen a few posts promoting FB pages on places but no one has actually explained how one could use FB to further research If anyone has some thoughts on the subject I would welcome them -- Nivard Ovington in Cornwall (UK)
