There is a new genealogy social networking site http://www.ancestralspace.com . Made especially for those that can't get enough of myspace/facebook type sites (and yes I realize some of you will have NO interest in this at all)Well, I don't really care for MySpace or Facebook but I am a member of both. Some of those applications can be so annoying. I thought what they hay I will try this new site and see what it's about. Fellow genealogist are just the people I like to socialize with. It Appears to be a nice clean site. Why don't you hop over there and claim your own little AncestralSpace. Then we can check out the site together.
Some of you may wonder...why a site like this. Well I will tell you. Last year I made a myspace page for my genealogy forum and found lots of friends that have genealogy as an interest. Wednesday, I was "interviewed" about my thoughts on myspace and genealogy....did it help?
I got to thinking, nope, I've not found one piece of information or person with which to share information on myspace other than "genealogy news"
Then I got to thinking....I had seen a "myspace" type site for another hobby I'm interested in but I didnt know of one for one of the most widespread hobbies in the world. Why not have a social sight for people that were not looking to "find a date or a mate".
People that know me, know I have a passion for research and for helping other people find things and for helping other people find living relatives that might help them break down their brickwalls.
Will this work? I don't know...I have high hopes for it.
This site will be a work in progress for many weeks to come I'm sure, and suggestions are always welcome even if I might not always do what you suggest.
This is gonna be fun....yeah its gonna be fun
See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
