GenFriends~Social Media and Goodbye to IDG!

This week on GenFriends, Terrie O'Connell and Mary Kircher Roddy join me to talk about using social media for your genealogy research.  We also discuss the importance of connecting with other genealogists.  We have a wonderful community with people willing to help and support you in your efforts to find family!

To begin, we took a few minutes to say goodbye to The In-Depth Genealogist.
Terri and the folks behind the scenes of Going in Depth Magazine, the IDG Blog and Academy announced with sad hearts that it was time to move on to other avenues.
Here is the link to the official announcement. 
 If you are a subscriber to the magazine you can read the final issue and download back copies.
Books and Quick Guides are all on sale! 
Thanks so much, Terri and Jen for all the hard work involved in the many facets of IDG.
There wouldn't be a GenFriends without you!
