Teaming Up
Grab a partner and gang up on your genealogy brick walls with help from these top technology tools.
One can be the loneliest number when it comes to genealogy research. Often, you’re on your own when you study in libraries, click online, pore over books and analyze what you find. It’s an ironic but practical reality of a hobby that’s all about connecting you to others.

With all the online social networking and other collaborative tools at our fingertips these days, though, there’s no excuse for going it alone. It’s never been easier to find a genealogy buddy, communicate in real time, share notes and trees, track sources and tasks, and even work on the same writing project without worrying about who has the master copy.
