Genealogy Research

Pinterest for Genealogists!

Pinterest and Genealogy - A Great Combination

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.
