I love Pinterest! I use it for all kinds of things including genealogy. I pin links of sites to explore further, sites to use in my genealogy research, references to states and counties where I research…. The list goes can (and does) go on and on. I organize my Pinterest boards into categories so I can easily find the things I have pinned again. Hint: If your Pinterest boards get too big (i.e. have so many pins that finding what you are looking for is difficult, subdivide your cateogory into another board(s).
Here is a peek at a few of my Pinterest boards.
I also use Pinterest to follow other genealogists and genealogy bloggers. Sharing resources is a great benefit of using Pinterest in your genealogy. Below are a dozen genealogists and and/or genealogy bloggers I follow on Pinterest.
