Facebook for Genealogists Cheat Sheet

Facebook

[UPDATE June 2012: Most of my offerings at Lulu.com have been retired. The reason: it has been difficult to keep various guides on Facebook, WordPress, Blogger, etc. updated. Please stay tuned for new offerings soon!]

High-Definition Genealogy and The Connected Genealogist are proud to announce its new and FREE Getting Started With Facebook guide (opens in PDF) as well as updates to its Facebook listings of genealogy people, fan pages, groups and genealogy societies!

The new cheat sheet is designed for those genealogists who need some guidance on how to setup a Facebook account, how to configure account settings, how to protect privacy and more.
