One of the best aspects of online genealogy is that the technology allows us to get in touch with other researchers from all over the world. Whether it's through e-mail, message boards, chat rooms, or whatever will come next, this level of connectedness opens up a lot of opportunities for all of us to follow leads and get new ones in the search for our ancestors.

You can get to GenForum by clicking the Community link at the top of the home page, and then clicking the GenForum link in the navigation bar below it.
