Finding cousins through social media

Ancestry.com has published a helpful video series outlining how to use the power of social media to find cousins.

Just like Ancestry.com says: Social media is not just for cat videos and boring vacation photos. Many family historians post what they know about their ancestors in hopes of finding a long lost cousin or two.

With this in mind, the video explores what you might find on Facebook and Twitter as well as some places you might not have thought of like email lists and message boards.

While the video is Ancestry.com focussed, you can use the same approaches for any genealogy service provider.
