FamilySearch Facebook Community Research Pages

FamilySearch has developed several Research Community pages on FaceBook and Skype.  These groups have been designed to allow you to collaborate with others that are searching in the same local of your ancestors, ask questions, and help others by sharing what you know.  Do you have to be a professional?  Definitely not.  The groups are designed to encourage anyone with an interest to ask questions and to share the knowledge that you have.  Come join in the fun.  If you would like to learn more about these groups, by following the directions for the FamilySearch wiki at  Join A Facebook Research Community. The research groups currently available are worldwide and include:
  1. Denmark
  2. Finland
  3. Sweden
  4. England
  5. Ireland
  6. Wales
  7. North America to include: Illinois, Missouri, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia
If you do not see a local that you are currently researching, you can suggest an area to be started as a Community Research.  If you visit the link Join A Facebook Research Community, you can learn how to participate in this exciting opportunity.  Don't have a Facebook account? Then check out the Skype Research Community. Have fun!
