Genealogy & Family History
The Perfect Social Media

         Web 2.0 provides the perfect way to record and share family history. Internet and mobile-based tools are everywhere. New technology strategies allow for harnessing a network of genealogy communities and locating long lost relatives. Online collaboration, instant communications, e-family histories, documents online and virtual environments bring genealogical research into the 21st century.  See Full Bio
