Using Twitter is a fun way to meet genealogists, get tips on new family history resources and record research progress. And also to follow news media, experts on archaeology and gardening, and more! Unique diary! Here are some of my recent tweets:
Wisconsin 1875 Census on FamilySearch with index & scans is great! Ancestors Benjamin Church & Sherman A. Bradley in Milwaukee!
My http://books.google.com/ search – ancestor Ferdinand Hachez did weather observations 1865, helped found a hail insurance company 1870
Try to be a generous genealogy volunteer and help others find their families! See an example at Relative Musings: http://tiny.cc/RMsng939
