The Week in Facebook - 8/29/2008

This is a weekly feature which will document some of the genea-blogger happenings as they relate to Facebook®.

- Since last Friday, the Genea-Bloggers group has added 14 more members for a total of 154. Please remember to look at the member list and if you see someone new, invite them to be a friend, read their blog, and tell them "welcome!"

- It seems that September is packed with events including many carnivals. There is a new one in town - The Canadian Genealogy Carnival. Many of us may have early ancestors who were Loyalists and after the American Revolution fled to Canada so make sure sign up for this carnival and post about them!

- Other events include the Carnival of Genealogy, Smile for the Camera, Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy, Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture, and a Getting To Know You challenge.

Again, if anyone has a question as to how to use Facebook®, I'd be happy to help. You can always email me directly but if you post your question as a Discussion Topic at the Genea-Bloggers group, you might find that other members also have the same questions.

Thanks, Thomas. I was just thinking we need a 'deadline calendar' to keep track of all these events and activities.
For blog info topics - more about how to back up our blogs would be good, especially in view of the recent problems some people have had.

Never mind, Thomas - I am a bit behind apparently...I just found the Google Genea-Blogger calendar thanks to noticing the poll at Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers.
