Today’s social media can help genealogists:
• Find resources around the globe
• Receive quick answers even from long distances
• Work together in a group
• Learn from other genealogists’ experience
• Receive invitations to live events and videos
• Share family photos, stories and so much more

You might even receive ideas for getting past your Brick Walls! This lively presentation will cover several social media platforms and give special attention to Facebook (including showing you how to remain somewhat anonymous if privacy is your concern).

Topics are covered in the textbook Fundamentals of Genealogy®: The Most Helpful Tools You've Never Used and Fundamentals of Genealogy®: Basics for Everyone, by Marsha Peterson-Maass. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event. The cost for the book will be $20.00, which includes a 20% discount.

About

The 1501 Ellinwood Street library building is the realization of a longheld dream of the library board, staff and community partners. Located in the heart of downtown Des Plaines, the four story, 82,000 square foot building represents the community's commitment to reading, lifelong learning, and a center for family activities. A grand central staircase and large windows provide a wealth of natural light and illuminate the building at night.
