Do you love Social Media? Or, does it confound you? No matter which camp you are in, social media can have a wonderful impact on your research as well as on how you connect with family and fellow genealogists.
Last week the South Carolina State Library presented Social Media for Genealogists as a live webinar. Debbie Bloom, librarian and geneablogger of The Dead Librarian, starts her presentation with iGoogle and discusses blog readers, wikis, Facebook, and more. Missed it? Don’t worry. This presentation was recorded and is now available for you to view for free.
Want more? Terri and I have both taken the Social Media for the Wise Genealogist course through The National Institute for Genealogical Studies. If a course isn’t your thing jump straight to the book! Social Networking for Genealogists by Drew Smith is a compact and easy read that will help give you the lay of the social media land.
Do you have other resources that you enjoy for learning to use social media in your research? Let everyone benefit by sharing them on our forum!
