FamilyLink has created a new genealogy social network named GenealogyWise.

It's like Facebook for genealogy, with member profiles, video sharing, forums, member blogs, chat, surname groups and more

You can add your genealogy information (which can be edited) to create your personal page.

On the home page, you can check on the Latest Activity, read Blog Posts, and deal with your account. The tabs across the top are Main, Invite, My Page, Members, Forum, Groups, Blogs, Video, Genealogy Search, Chat, Store, and More.

You can ask someone to be a Friend by going to the Members page, click on each person's image, and click on "Add As Friend." The person will have to approve you as a Friend. You can search for a specific Member also, and after becoming their Friend, you can ask their Friends to be your Friend too.

You can start a Group for your particular genealogical interest, so that you can have discussions and share information with people researching the same interest.

The more people sign up for GenealogyWise, the more useful it will become.
