UPDATE #2: Facebook for Australian History and Genealogy

UPDATE #2: Facebook for Australian History and Genealogy

Since releasing my first big list of Australian Facebook links relating to history and genealogy just over a month ago, I’ve had more links submitted to me, and have found hundreds (and I mean hundreds) more.

So while my last list contained 504 links in 20 pages, this one now has 765 links, and is listed on 29 pages. And I even have two new categories in this one (Families, and Genealogy Bloggers). You can download the latest list from the link below.


This is an ongoing list which will be updated periodically, so if you have any links you’d like added, please either send an email to  alona @ lonetester.com (without the spaces), or message me on my Lonetester page on Facebook.


And I can’t mention genealogy on Facebook without making reference to two other incredible lists:
– Katherine Willson’s worldwide Genealogy on Facebook list is enormous, and now has over 10,000 links.
– Gail Dever’s Facebook for Canadian Genealogy is a must for everyone with Canadian connections.

      Aww thankyou Alex. Both Katherine’s world list and Gail’s Canadian lists are amazing aren’t they, and I must say they inspired me to do the Australian one. An personally I think those who have created and manage the pages/groups are they ones to be thanked, not me … as they are ones creating the resource in the first place – I’m just putting it in a list. 😉
