DNA and Social Networking
A Guide to Genealogy in the Twenty-first CenturyeBook - 2011
An easy-to-use guide to finding one's ancestors with the latest in new technology and scientific techniques -- including blogs, web auctions, wikis, and YouTube. Presenting the future of family history, this up-to-date book offers a guide to using social networking, such as Facebook and Twitter, as a research tool and explains the facts and potential of DNA testing for the genealogist. Family history research has come a long way from the local record office; now 21st-century scientific and technological developments have changed the way people look into their family pasts, allowing them to delve further back. Many tools which were not conceived with the genealogist in mind are increasingly being exploited by family historians, either to advance their research or to network with other genealogists. Many family historians struggle to cope with these new technologies and this book explains how to use these new tools effectively.
