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...


  1. Sara Beth,
    Love the new design! Looking forward to your "brickwall" posts and many more.

  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 it is amazing how smart TNG works - like doing a blog with genealogical data. You should give this a try :)

    regards Timo!
