Occasionally something comes along that moves from the ordinary to the extraordinary. I have been writing for some time about the movement of online genealogy from blogging to social networking websites such as Facebook.com. These lists compiled by Genealogist Katherine R. Willson and others dramatically illustrate that movement. Here is a description of the link to her list from her article shown above:

Gail Dever has a broader Canadian list that includes French-speaking groups & pages, and that can be downloaded at Facebook for Canadian Genealogy. Alona Tester has an Australian list that can be downloaded at Facebook for Australian History & Genealogy.This also emphasizes the complexity of the wider, online genealogy community. It also demonstrates to me how impossible it is to know everything that is going on in that community and how small a part I play in whatever is going on.
