Social Media for Family Historians, 2nd edition

The second edition of my book,¬†Social Media for Family Historians, is now out.¬†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.

LibraryThing for local and family history societies

I've been saying for a while now that I think LibraryThing is ideal for allowing small societies and libraries to maintain and display their library catalogues.

Unfortunately my genealogy society isn't part of WorldCat, but one day that will change. For the sake of this exercise I decided not to look for a … [Read more...]

My genealogy library

My first thought whenever I need to learn something new is to buy a book, and there are many to choose from. I like to have them on my shelves at home so I buy them, but there is nothing wrong with using the resources of your local library. I have to admit to being a bit of a book collector from way back. I learned to cook, to grow pot plants, to make curtains, to program a computer, and a great many other things, from books. (Yes, as my Mum will tell you, she was never interested in cooking … [Read more...]
