Facebook and Blogs

February 7, 2012

As you might know, I just returned from Salt Lake City, UT and Roots Tech 2012. Lots of topics, talks, chatting, looking a techie stuff and lots of other things, including talking to other Genea-Bloggers.

We heard a lot about Social Networking in many formats.

About an hour ago, My friend Midge Frazel, of Granite In My Blood, simply posted, on FaceBook “Quaker Family: Small Breakthrough”. Since I read and follow her blogs, I had to look, especially with my Quaker Roots.

Her “small breakthrough” had a link to the Quaker “Monthly Meeting” in Adrian, Michigan. I know that place. I opened my family file, went to Adrain in my file to verify who had an event there.


Elizabeth Willits married Samuel Leeds in Adrain. Elizabeth is my 2nd Great Grandmother.

Midge continued to say to do a Google Search in Google Books, as that is how she found more information. She posted a link http://www.michmarkers.com/startup.asp?startpage=L1844.htm

The Google Search found this article:

Friends’ review: a religious, literary and miscellaneous journal, Volume 31 and on page 825 was this article.


Samuel Leeds was her second marriage. She had previously married Henry Wilson Worthington.

Lesson Learned: The value of Social Media.
