I randomly choose a video to check it out. It turned out to be Tom Kemp teaching. (now I can't zero back on it.) In the middle of the video he was talking about using Facebook as a research tool. I listened as he talked about finding a family group on Facebook, on which he found pictures and information. I considered this and decided it was time to set up our Langley Family -- Descendants of William Langley and Nancy Carrier group on Facebook to find those branches that have not yet been found.
I contacted a distant cousin and told him what I was up to. He thought it was a great idea and supported the idea. I set it up and added pictures, links to blog posts, then invited some cousins and told Brian to invite his family. It was set up as an open group and once I had it formatted and set up I told the members it was their page to share, search, and grab pictures.
I was wonderful to see it went from 2 to 41 members in two days. Most are 3 and 4th generation that I am just now meeting. It is so fun to see the meet and greet and explanations going on in the chat.
