Social Media for Genealogists

Meredith Sellers


Social media are valuable tools for connecting and communicating with relatives, potential cousins, and fellow genealogists.  However, navigating various social media platforms and understanding their privacy controls can be daunting.  As a member of the Web-savvy “Millennial Generation”, Meredith will provide case studies illustrating how social media can complement your current research endeavors.  She will also address the pros and cons of different social media platforms and outline ways for you to maintain a secure, controlled online presence.


Dr. Meredith Sellers holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and works as a Senior Engineer at Exponent Failure Analysis Associates.  Meredith has leveraged social media since 2008 to assist her personal genealogical research in New York City, St. Louis, Eastern Europe, and the British Isles.  Before relocating to the Bay Area, Meredith volunteered and taught for organizations including the Champaign Family History Center, Champaign County Genealogical Society, and Olive Branch Cemetery Restoration.


Hope to see you Sunday!


Thank you,
