New Pages and Groups on Facebook about genealogy research are being created nearly every day. The main topic of either a Page or a Group will typically be about doing research in a specific location, an ethnic group, or special interest.


See the Family Associations page for a listing of family organizations, societies, and associations that have either a Facebook page, a website, or other contact information.
