Thankful Thursday - Thanks for Facebook Pages

I am very thankful for Facebook and the ability to share with others that Facebook provides. My brother has launched a page where he uploads family pictures that he has access to. In posting these family pictures, he has made them accessible to siblings, nieces and nephews, and cousins that might like a copy for their personal use.

By encouraging others to send him photos that they wish to see posted, he has opened the lines of communication and reached out to our far flung family. I love watching the comments and discussion develop as we try to determine exactly who is in the photo and who they look like.

Cousins and siblings from CA to NJ and FL to WA have made use of this site and added valuable insights to our knowledge of our ancestors. Thanks Paul for creating your site!
