Do you use Reddit for Genealogy?
There is much I don’t know about and Reddit falls into that category.
I do know that it has a genealogy subreddit and it appears to be popular with 10,528 subscribers.
I understand that it has some very lighthearted material (jokes, puns, off-topic, or otherwise non-contributory content) and also some “serious” questions posed. Here is an example of a [SERIOUS] genealogy thread. People will also post about their brick walls.
Clearly an open dialogue type platform where public discourse takes place.
If you use Reddit for genealogy, tell us how.
If you have used Reddit for genealogy, how has it helped your research?
