Follow Friday: Connecticut Genealogy Research Group

FamilySearch has just announced that their local research pages are changing form. Instead of being focused on one state, they will now focus on an entire region. Visit the Connecticut page (https://www.facebook.com/ConnecticutGenealogy) for more information.

 Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Honestly, I'm not sure. The theory behind the original page - a space for people to share information about localized resources - was a strong one. It's not likely to be replicated on a regional page. Visitors won't have the same level of knowledge or interest in material from another state. At the same time, the local page has never had much traffic. There is a chance this move might work.
