Social networking and genealogy

Posted by Craig on 10/10/2008
Punch the word 'genealogy' into the growing social networking site Ning, and you'll find dozens of results.

Ning allows Internet users to create their own social networking site. People are using that to create sites for their own families, for genealogy and technology, and for researching family history in general.

Then there's Facebook, which of course has taken off exponentially in the last few years. There's applications that users can put in their profiles, like "We're related." Here's what mine looks like:



Is this the future of genealogy? I mentioned in my last entry that it seems to be dying down in popularity on the Web. But maybe that's because it's just growing in new areas, like social networking.

Social networking and genealogy are obviously a natural marriage. They make sense to go together. Long lost cousins have the chance to create profiles, post their respective trees, and connect. It opens up exciting new doors in the world of genealogy. And I think there will be a lot more of it to come in the next few years.

Hi Craig,

Genealogy is definitely growing especially, as you say, with the
proliferation of Social Networks.

I would like to suggest you to take a look at MyHeritage.com, the first
Family Social Network.

It has very cool features for genealogists of all levels plus face
recognition technology used specifically for indentifying family members in
your photos and more.

It's really worthwhile.

Thanks Daniel. That site looks vaguely familiar, may have run into it before, but I don't think I ever really tried using it. I'll check it out.

A telecom engineer’s job involves the use of various tools such as interconnect devices, network facilities, and radios. A field engineer also works with engineers from other fields for equipment installation and then report to the upper management.
