Genealogists love to share...most of the time. After all, it is by sharing that we find genealogy gold. It is with this spirit that we use social media. One of our goals is to meet our customers where they are at online. By using social media, we are able to connect with you in a unique way on your terms. MGC is using a variety of platforms for your convenience including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest.

Twitter is a new platform for us! There you’ll find updates on what’s going on in the building, links to library resources, updates on classes and events, and genealogy quotes.

We’ve got some innovative and fun plans for Pinterest, so stay tuned for more on that.

And then we have Facebook and Google+, currently the two most popular social media platforms on the Internet. Find us on either and you’ll get U.S. history trivia, "today in history" facts, updates on classes and events, periodical reviews, links to our blogs, links to helpful external sites, and more. And with Google+, it is our hope that we’ll eventually be able to provide more services with their community and hangout features.

By utilizing social media in this way, we’re able to keep you in the loop when you can’t be in the building. Like us, Circle us, Follow us—whatever it is you do on the platforms that you use. And let us know how we can better serve you using these platforms. What are some things you’d like to see? How can we make MGC a better social media genealogy resource for you?
