Re: The Montreal Gazette - Facebook as a genealogical tool #general

I love using facebook for genealogy; about 2/3 of my friends on it, are distant
cousins!! I am always going through my tree and looking up those names on
facebook. When I find a name that matches, I send a very friendly and
non-confrontational note, stating who I am and how we are related... most are
then willing over time to reveal information to me and others are very forthright
from the get go. Many times, they are almost as excited as I am when I find them.
