I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you who have added me as a friend at Facebook. I know I don’t post much on “The Wall” and that I may not seem to do much on my page but I do go there!
It’s been very interesting to be able to actually see different things about my fellow bloggers and, in a way, get to know you all better.
One added benefit of Facebook has been that I am now learning so much from the Unclaimed Persons group that was the main catalyst in my signing up for the service in the first place. I haven’t had an opportunity to help much in any of the researching of the cases yet because I have been working. It seems I only have time to help on the weekends. Watching how the others have gone about their research in finding the persons has helped me to learn a little more about how I can go about researching my relatives!
I’ve been posting a lot lately about my elusive great-uncle, Martin Isaic Spangler, and I believe that I have learned a lot just by reading the progress of the cases at Unclaimed Persons. I think that I may be able to use that info I have learned from the group to try to find a way to connect with a living relative of Martin’s.
You see, there are so many different tools available that we don’t realize could be used as genealogy research tools! Who’d have thought that Facebook would be helpful in my genealogy?
Have a great day everyone!
