Follow Legacy on Twitter

Twitter It seems everyone is using Twitter, and now, so are we here at Legacy Family Tree! To make sure you don't miss our "tweets", follow us at

When I think of tweeting, I think of my childhood-favorite cartoon - Tweety and Sylvester. Twitter is becoming so popular, that in one day last week I heard about it on the radio and twice during two unrelated television shows.

So what's all the hype about? Twitter's website explains that "Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co-workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?"

Personally, I struggle to find enough minutes in the day to keep up with my own immediate family, and the thought of keeping up with so many others via Twitter seems an undaunting task. What would our ancestors think?

However, here at Legacy Family Tree we try to stay on top of technology so we're giving it a try. When you sign up to follow us on Twitter, you will receive instant notification of our latest news, tips, and updates.

So, if you want to follow us, sign up at

Other ways to follow Legacy

Not quite ready for Twitter? You can still follow us in other ways....

Legacy Home. Open Legacy and click on the Legacy Home tab (in the upper left). As part of Legacy Home, the Legacy News section brings you the headlines of each of our news articles. All you need is an Internet connection, and the articles automatically appear in Legacy.

Blog. The articles can be read by visiting our blog at Here, the articles are archived by date and category. For example, click on the Technology Tips link in the Archives section, and you will get to read all of the articles that have been published relating to genealogy technology. For more information on blogs, read "What is a Blog?"

RSS Feed. Using Bloglines or other feed management software described at, you can subscribe to our Legacy News feed. Whenever a new article is available, it will be immediately delivered to your reader. The advantage of using this technology is that the articles are not transmitted via email, therefore, your spam control will not somehow block its delivery. And you won't have to visit our website each day to see if anything new has been published. But then, you can do the same thing via Legacy Home. For more on RSS, read Dick Eastman's article here.

LegacyNews Headlines. The headlines and other important Legacy information is still emailed twice a month. To ensure that you receive the email, make sure that you are subscribed to LegacyNews at, and make sure that your spam-filtering software is not blocking it.

Please keep sending all info via your RSS feed as well. I still don't get how twitter is any different than RSS, but the masses seem to think otherwise.
