MGC – A Social Media Maverick
March 27, 2014
Recently, the Midwest Genealogy Center’s blogs were recognized by Family Tree Magazine. In their Social Media Mavericks: 40 to Follow, they write “This blog is key to accessing the latest offerings from this genealogical treasure. Posts cover a wide range of genealogy topics—everything from how to order microfilm to how to find genealogical topics on Twitter.” MGC is thrilled by this honor; thank you Family Tree Magazine! Our staff loves sharing our collective knowledge about all things genealogy, especially all the great resources our library has to offer. We also love sharing how we have used these resources to help customers and ourselves with genealogy research.
So this has brought some questions to our minds about our audience and how you all reach our blogs. Do you follow MGC’s social media networks like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or Pinterest to discover blogs? Or do you regularly check MGC’s website for the latest blog? Are there any topics you would like to see staff highlight? Do you have a genealogy brick wall that MGC staff could help you get over? Maybe your brick wall will help someone else out, as well. MGC’s many resources can get lost in the shuffle and we would appreciate your help in getting the word out about our fantastic library!
