[[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,
+
== FamilySearch Regional Research Groups  ==
:*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.

== List of Genealogy Research Communities on Facebook ==
+
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.
 +
 
 +
<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.<br>

:*'''I would like to see a page started for _________, could you create one?'''
 
::If you would like to have a page created for a location you are researching:
 
:::*Go to the [[Talk:Join a Facebook Research Community|Discussion page]] and click to edit the page. (You must be signed in to edit.)
 
:::*Add a note about which pages you'd like to see next.
 
:::*Include whether or not you'd like to volunteer to be the administrator for the page.
 
:::*After your request, add <nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>. That will [[Help:Signatures|Sign your username]] to the request and allow us to notify you when a community is created for that area.

'''What is Facebook?'''
 
  
:*[[Facebook|Facebook]] is a leading "social media" website where individuals communicate and interact with one another. You can learn more or register for an account at [http://www.facebook.com Facebook.com].
 
  
'''Where can I learn more Facebook safety?'''
 
  
:Facebook has created a website about keeping yourself safe at [http://www.facebook.com/safety Facebook Safety]. If you are very concerned and would rather not use Facebook, you are welcome to [[Join a Skype Research Community]] instead.
 
  
'''What's the benefit of joining a Facebook Community Page vs. a Skype Group?'''

::*Skype is a chat program that allows for more detailed communications and interaction between individuals or groups of users. It allows groups to participate together in group discussions. It also allows for sending documents that others can review to help with evaluating records and, if desired, live video discussions or screen sharing.
 
  
'''Additional questions?'''
 
  
::*Ask on the [[Talk:Join a Facebook Research Community|Discussion page]]. Click '''Edit this page '''and add your question.
 
::*Be sure to add <nowiki>~~~~</nowiki> after your question to sign your name so that someone can contact you if needed.

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.


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.
