Title: Connecting with family lines online
Precis: We used to use directories and write letters to discover family connections but now there are many different ways we can find others searching the same family lines. This presentation will look at some of those ways we can now find connections – on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FamilySearch, Facebook … and even DNA. What does each offer and which should you pursue – or ignore at your peril?
