Revision as of 18:07, 4 April 2014


F logo.png
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. Feel free to add to this growing list of both pages and groups on Facebook that can help with family history research.


The FamilySearch-sponsored Genealogy Research Communities on Facebook were introduced in May 2011. Both the Fans and the volunteer administrators facilitate free research help on all the pages.

On Facebook you will also find pages and groups set up to help with surname-based research. Individuals and also family societies and family organizations are setting up Facebook pages for their surname-based research efforts. There is a separate page in the Wiki for listing all the known surname research pages: Surname Pages and Groups on Facebook.
