Social media can be intimidating, even for the most advanced researcher! This seminar will start with helping attendees realize that they have been using it for years online in different forms. Mailing lists and message boards, as well as popular social media sites such as Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Flickr, WikiTree, and many other blogs and podcasts, will be explored for their usefulness in family history research. Examples of genealogical resources on each of these platforms will be given and explained. By the end of the seminar, course attendees will have gained a better understanding of how social media can help them: - meet new cousins - keep up with local and national genealogical societies - share their research - find photos and/or documents they never knew existed - solve tough research problems through collaboration, and - educate themselves about genealogical methodology and new databases and record sets.
