The Power Of Social Media For Genealogists

Yesterday I posted a request for help in finding a book with details on a friend’s ancestor.  Click on the pictures to enlarge them.

I shared the blog post on Google Plus and Jill and Julie shared it with their circles for me too

and today I have the answer from Judy on how to access said book!!!

blog comment

I hadn’t previously heard of Family Search’s Free Book Lookup Service so I checked out the link Judy sent me https://familysearch.org/blog/en/google-books-free-copies-pages-family-history-library-books/ and followed their instructions.

Basically if they have the book you’re after in their library they will scan the page or pages you need and will email them to you free of charge!!  I am eagerly awaiting the book pages now!
