The APG listers have been discussing, “How to cite Facebook, Twitter and Genealogy Wiki’s”. This could apply to those Twitters who have been posting to the #genealogy #surnames hashtags in the Twitter groups, Family History and Brickwalls…provided that they actually find helpful information, of course! Citing source information is important. You can read more information about how to cite your electronic genealogy sources on Cyndi’s List: http://www.cyndislist.com/citing.htm There is a heading exclusively for citation of electronic resources that you will find helpful.
