Facebook frivolities

There has not been much time for any family history research with all the Christmas and New Year festivities, and I'm only now beginning to catch up on everything. In the meantime I've been having some fun playing around on Facebook. I initially set up an account just to try and track a few people down but I rapidly became addicted! I was surprised to discover that I already knew quite a few people on there, including a number of fellow Guild members, and we have now all become Facebook 'friends'. There are quite a few Cruwyses listed, some of whom are unknown to me, and I'm hoping that I will be able to contact them and make some further inroads on the various family trees. I've also set up a new Cruwys genealogy group on Facebook, which will provide a platform for us to share photos and stories. It's all very informal and will be much more interactive than the blog. To access the group you will have to sign up for an account. Once you have an account you can ask me to be your 'friend', that is if I don't get there first! You will find me listed on Facebook as Deborah Cruwys Kennett. If you're lucky I might even send you a 'hatching egg' as a welcome present!
