On September 5th, join The Western Massachusetts Genealogical Society as Marian B Wood presents on the topic Using Facebook and Twitter for Genealogy – She will reveal the fun, benefits, and mechanics of Facebook and Twitter to connect with family-history researchers in areas where ancestors lived, request assistance, obtain translations, and learn more about genealogy sources, technology, and methodology. The many forms of Social media are easy to use and offer the opportunity for more immediate response compared with traditional surname message boards–to jumpstart genealogy efforts at any level.
Marian B. Wood is a popular genealogy speaker and hosts a blog entitled Climbing My Family Tree. She has also written a book “Planning a Future for Your Family’s Past” available at the meeting and also at smile.amazon.com.
WMGS meets year-round on the first Wednesday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Agawam Senior Center, located at 954 Main Street in Agawam, Massachusetts.
