Social Media for Family Historians

Social Media for Family HistoriansMy first book, Social Media for Family Historians, was published in late 2010 by Unlock The Past. It explains what social media is; what use it is; and introduces you to more than 25 social media sites that can help family historians to communicate, share and collaborate with other family historians and with their own families.

It covers new ways to communicate such as Sykpe and SecondLife; social networking sites such as Facebook and GenealogyWise; blogs and microblogs such as Twitter; sites for sharing family trees such as Ancestry and MyHeritage; sites for sharing photos and videos such as Flickr and YouTube; and community information sites such as wikis and social bookmarking.It explains in some detail how to get started with Facebook and blogging.

  1. Could Carole Riley get in touch with me ? I want to set up a complete social media program and project for the purpose of furthering my One Name Study, associated with the Guild Of One Name Studies (GOONS). You can see there that the name Blaker is registered.

    I need someone to take on the job of using the social media in order to attract Blaker people to the website and to get volunteers to help out with this study.

    I dont mind learning and participating, but I think it is better to get someone knowledgeable to get the project started .

    Look forward to hearing from Dame Carole.
