Sites for Reconnecting with Family & Friends

With the Internet, lost family members and old friends are now back on sight thanks to sites that have allowed us to find and socialize with them like in the good old days.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the best sites for reconnecting with family are:

  • Facebook: of course!  It is the most visited social networking site in the world. If you are looking for long-lost relatives, there is a decent chance they are among the 350 million members in Facebook,
  • Familycrossings.com: It lets users create family websites.  Relatives can post photos, events and family stories orchat live.  Membership is $9.95 per month.
  • Geni.com:  It is a network of more than 70 million user-generated family trees.  Amateur genealogists can upload information and invite relatives to contribute.  There's even an option to merge trees, should a user discover a new branch of the family.
  • Myheritage.com: is a family-oriented social networking site dedicated to genealogy.  It features a family-tree creator and an ancestor-search engine, which sifts through more than 1,500 genealogy sites.

I am a member of Geni.com.  I really love it.  I just started but I am planning on spreading the word with my family and relatives so that they can contribute too!

About The Author

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of ModaPreviewInternational.com and an established fashion/portrait photographer.
