Using Technology to Connect

After connecting with a distant cousin on Twitter last weekend I decided that I need to do a better job of publishing my research. Over the years, I have discovered a lot about my family online. When I first started exploring my family history I wasn't citing sources or even writing everything down. I would just add their information to my tree and called it research. As I have gotten more involved in my research I have started to rely on my online finds to provide me with starting points to continue or expand my research. By posting my research, brickwalls and all, I hope that I can make a connection or two that expands my research or the research of another researcher. So here it goes...

  2. Hi Sara,

    a good idea to publish your research - I had made a lot of great connection with my website.

    I'am using TNG to view my research on my site www.kracke.org it is amazing how smart TNG works - like doing a blog with genealogical data. You should give this a try :)

    regards Timo!
