An expert genealogist explains how to share your family history online and collaborate with distant relatives to build a richer ancestral story.
For many enthusiasts pursuing their family history research, the online world offers a seemingly endless archive of digitized materials. In addition to hosting records, however, the internet also offers a unique platform on which we can host our research and potentially connect with distant relatives from around the world.
InĀ Sharing Your Family History Online, genealogist Chris Paton demonstrates the many ways we can present our research and encourage collaboration online. He details helpful organizations and social media applications, describes the software platforms on which we can collate our stories, and illustrates the variety of ways we can publish our stories online.
Along the way, Paton also explores how we can make our research work for us, by connecting with experts and relatives who can help solve ancestral mysteries. This happens not only by sharing stories, but by accessing uniquely held documentation by family members around the world, including our shared DNA.
