In the July 2008 issue of Family Tree Magazine
, I wrote an article, "Charmed Life," about how genealogists connect with lost family—people, history and artifacts. It was a lot of fun to work on.
Midge Frazel, one of the women featured in the piece, has created a video of her story. You can watch it on her FaceBook
page. In it she talks about how a chance discovery on the photo reunion site, Dead Fred
, brought back a piece of her photo history. If you're not on FaceBook, don't worry, you can look at it on Flickr.
If you've never tried FaceBook, I recommend it! My teenagers hate that I have a page, but I'm having a great time connecting with colleagues via that social netwroking venue. By the way, if you decide to sign up, don't forget to become a fan of Family Tree Magazine
. All you have to do is click on the cover.
I'd love to hear what you think of using FaceBook. Use the comment section below.
