Who knew FaceBook could actually be useful?

I'm a long time member of FaceBook. I enjoy it because it enables to stay in touch with friends. But I just recently discovered that it can actually be useful. Something more than a brainless time suck. 

Don't know why this is just now a revelation to me, but there are lots of great genealogical resources on FaceBook. My favorites of the moment are pages devoted to locales where I have ancestors. The Franklin, Granville, Vance, and Warren County page is devoted to local history and genealogy. So is the Wake, Harnett, and Johnston County page. Folks on these sites have been great about answering questions and brainstorming. 

Even Cyndi's List blog talks about how to use FaceBook in genealogy. It's a good read. Check it out!
