{{See also|Family Associations}} <br> [[Image:F logo.png|right|F logo.png]] New [https://www.facebook.com/help/pages Pages] and [https://www.facebook.com/help/groups Groups] on Facebook about genealogy research are being created nearly every day. The main topic of either a Page or a Group will typically be about doing research in a specific location, an ethnic group, or special interest. Feel free to add to the list. <br> See the '''[[Family Associations]]''' page for a listing of family organizations, societies, and associations that have either a Facebook page, a website, or other contact information. Feel free to add to list.

[[Image:F logo.png|right|F logo.png]] The FamilySearch-sponsored Genealogy Research Communities on Facebook were introduced in May 2011. Currently there are 109 Community pages with a total of over 24,677 Fans. Both the Fans and the volunteer administrators facilitate free research help on all the community pages. The three most common ways to participate include:
+
  
:*ask your research questions,
+
__TOC__
:*collaborate on your research, and
+
:*share knowledge you have gained as you've done your own research in a specific area.
+
  
In addition, there are other locality-specific genealogy research '''[[Pages and Groups on Facebook]]''' that are not sponsored by FamilySearch. The '''[[Surname Pages and Groups on Facebook]]''' can also be of assistance to you in your research.

The FamilySearch regional research groups on Facebook were created to be collaborative environments where individuals researching the same general location could help one another reach their family history goals through asking and answering questions, sharing helpful resources and information.

New Pages and Groups on Facebook about genealogy research are being created nearly every day. The main topic of either a Page or a Group will typically be about doing research in a specific location, an ethnic group, or special interest. Feel free to add to the list.
See the Family Associations page for a listing of family organizations, societies, and associations that have either a Facebook page, a website, or other contact information. Feel free to add to list.

FamilySearch Regional Research Groups

The FamilySearch regional research groups on Facebook were created to be collaborative environments where individuals researching the same general location could help one another reach their family history goals through asking and answering questions, sharing helpful resources and information.
