Genealogists everywhere are learning to “pin it” and use Pinterest in their genealogical research.

genealogical researchMany genealogists and family history enthusiasts are discovering the benefits of using Pinterest as a tool for genealogical research. Pinterest is a bulletin board style photo-sharing website that lets users compile and organize their own image collections based on a particular theme. Users can browse pin boards created by other users and “re-pin” images to their own pin boards to add to their own collections.

Pinterest is a wildly addictive and creative way to manage and organize information. It is also a quick way to share information with others. A quick search of Pinterest reveals new genealogy and family history themed boards appearing everyday as researchers utilize this valuable social media tool.

There is so much information and material on Pinterest that it can seem daunting to navigate at first. By focusing on what type of information you are interested in you can quickly find your niche and you will be hooked!
