Book News: Social Networking for Genealogists


Drew Smith’s new book, Social Networking for Genealogists (GPC, $18.95) a time-saver. Instead of reading a mountain of books on FaceBook, blogging and podcasting just consult Drew’s book. It’s easy-to-use and well-written. I especially like the check-lists at the end of each chapter.

Chapter 8 covers photo and video sharing. He writes about Flickr, Yahoo’s photo sharing site and You Tube. Drew leads readers step-by-step through using these sites. For instance, you’ll learn how to upload and share pictures on Flickr, one of the most popular online photo sites. Even the Library of Congress has a Flickr page.

Genealogists are using social networking to connect with family and to find help with their research. It’s all about building a network. Follow Drew’s tips and advice and you too can join the social networking revolution.
