Saturday's Society : Genealogy on Facebook

This week's genealogy society is not on a particular society. It is on an enormous list compiled by genealogist Katherine R. Willson. Her list is composed of the many Facebook groups and societies that are related to genealogy in some manner. Willson's website can be found here.

Social media is everywhere and it has a strong presence in the world of genealogy. As an aid to help others a portion of Willson's list is posted below. This list is not the result of my research. All credit is due to Katherine R. Willson.

The Genealogy on Facebook list is all encompassing. The latest version is over 300 pages. For simplicity I have cut and pasted her list from 2016 on the Facebook groups that are New York based. The urls are not linked and have not been checked.
