Writing and Sharing Your Family History

Sharing your own family history is valuable for several reasons: It helps you see gaps in your own research and raises opportunities to find new information. It helps other researchers progress in researching ancestors you share in common. It draws other researchers to you who already have information about your family that you do not yet possess. It draws together researchers with common interests, sparking collaboration opportunities. For instance, researchers in various localities might choose to do lookups for each other in remote repositories. Your readers may also share photos of your ancestors that you have never seen before.
