These are the top ten articles that I wrote that were shared to other places, including Facebook and Twitter. I left out my Follow Friday posts as those are just compilations of other people’s links.
Over half of the shares were to Facebook. I’m surprised that Twitter was less than Google.
Distribution of Shares on Finding Forgotten Stories
I’m pleased that one of my very first posts “How Eight Children Ended Up Living Along in 1930″ is on the list. Finding that information about my grandmother was a significant genealogy moment for me. Also, the post which has a recently discovered picture of my Uncle Paul, sister and me.
It also appears that some of my articles on sourcing struck people as useful as well. I find it very encouraging that people care about sourcing. I’m not an expert by any means. But I do know that if I had started sourcing earlier in my genealogy career I would have been a happier camper.
