Facebook genealogy groups vs. Yahoo genealogy groups

Yahoo! Group Search Working on Louisiana Genealogy Blog but Blogger is down 😦

Win some lose some. I can’t post this to blogger, yet, as Blogger is down. Yahoo! finally came through with the fix for the broken search group message features. I noticed this today and then attempted to post via blogger. Blogger was down. Whoops. Guess I’ll blog later (you can read it now) about the benefits of a Yahoo Group over a Facebook group. Message or discussions cannot be searched in a Facebook Group. Yahoo! Groups CAN search
messages. ++ feature when you are searching for very specific information. I sorta miss the forward button though in the Yahoo Groups.

One of the benefits of managing and joining a Yahoo group is the message search feature. Facebook genealogy groups do not offer this in their discussions. If you are searching for specific information, you will not be able to search messages in a Facebook genealogy group. Recently, the Genealogy Box published many Facebook genealogy groups to visit, like or join.

Here is a listing:
