In addition, there are other locality-specific genealogy research '''[[Pages and Groups on Facebook]]''' that are not sponsored by FamilySearch. The '''[[Surname Pages and Groups on Facebook]]''' can also be of assistance to you in your research.  
+
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.

<br>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.<br>

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.
