A few weeks ago, while I was making a visit back home in New York, I received an inquiry from a reporter for the New York Times who needed information on genealogy and technology/social media. As I drove down the New York State Thruway to Newark Airport, I gave her a call and we chatted for about 30 minutes.
As a result, not only was I quoted and mentioned in today’s article entitled Finding Family History Online, but I was happy to see that several vendors that I mentioned were also included.
I just wish that every blog and vendor could have been mentioned in the article but this is a good start – hopefully the non-genealogy public will come to understand the ways in which technology and the Internet have made family history not just fun but more accessible and just as important as it ever was.
