Welcome and thank you for stopping by this weeks SCDL Tree Talk Tuesday post. This week we are going to take a look at Pinterest. I know what your thinking…”Did I just read that right…Pinterest…for Genealogy?” Yeap, that’s correct. You can use Pinterest for just about anything you are interested in. Think of it as a big bulletin board (in this case a virtual one) where you “pin” your favorite pictures of family, postcards from places you have or want to visit and things you want to remember to look at later.
So how does this work for the Genealogist? Simple, if you already have a Pinterest Account, begin creating boards and title them things such as “My Ancestors”, “Places My Ancestors Lived”, “Research Tips”and then begin searching for pins in the search box about the topics you created boards for or upload your own pins.
