We need your help to create additional groups!

If you would like to see a community created for a specific area you are researching, consider being an admin for that location. We are looking for multiple admins for each area, so you don't have to do it alone! The admin responsibilities revolve around three areas:
  1. Interacting with those who post on the page by commenting and answering questions posted, encouraging others to answer questions, and showing gratitude for resources shared
  2. Sharing news and information about how to do genealogy research in this area, information about genealogy events, and great resources available for this area.
  3. Partnering with local organizations such as libraries, archives, and societies, to invite them to share their news and events on the page
See the Facebook and Skype Community Administrators page for more details and instructions on how to request to become an admin.

List of Facebook Communities

The list of localities that have a Facebook Community page should be organized the same way they are organized on the Forums. If you have any questions, please let me know. JensenFA 23:45, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
