Hey folks, it’s back!! Friday, the 1st of February is #GenealogySelfie Day!! So let’s have some fun.

Conference Keeper (the organisers), have announced the following:

Genealogists are a friendly and social bunch. We share knowledge, information, documents, research triumphs and struggles, joys, sorrows – even pictures of cats. So why not selfies? Chances are good that if you’re on Facebook or Twitter (or even Instagram), you have many ‘genealogy’ friends that you probably have never met in person, but regularly Like, Share, and Comment on one another’s posts.

Genealogist Selfie Day is an opportunity for social genealogists to snap a picture of themselves and share it on Facebook , Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #genealogyselfie. It will be fun to put faces to names, and increase our chances of recognising one another at the next event!

So share a selfie picture of yourself at an archive or library, or next to a memorial, or holding a photo of your great great grandma, or looking at some family heirloom or grave – these a just a few of the many ideas you could do. But really the opportunities are endless. So have some fun, get creative, and we look forward to seeing your #GenealogySelfie pictures.

So diary date it for tomorrow, and join in on with #GenealogySelfie Day on February 1.

But please remember to hashtag it #GenealogySelfie!
