{{See also|Family Associations}} <br> [[Image:F logo.png|right|F logo.png]] New [https://www.facebook.com/help/pages Pages] and [https://www.facebook.com/help/groups 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. <br> 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.
