On Day 29 of Family History Month, use the Genealogy and Family History StackExchange for your genealogy questions.
StackExchange is a Q&A network for computer programmers that has expanded into Q&A for other topics, including genealogy and family history.
Anyone can read questions and answers on StackExchange, but in order to post questions or answers you’ll need to be a registered user.
You don’t have to be that heavily invested to benefit from StackExchange. I often go to StackExchange when I’m digitizing photos to remember the recommended file type and size. It’s a great site for a quick refresher on various genealogy topics and is worth checking out.
If you become a registered user and want to post questions and answers you should understand more about the community. Registered users gain or lose Reputation or trust within the community based on how other StackExchange users rate their questions and answers. A higher reputation earns you Privileges. StackExchange has an information page about gaining and losing Reputation and the Benefits of participating. Basically, voting/ranking helps direct other users to more trusted responses and benefits the community.
StackExchange is still primarily used by programmers, with over 40 million participating each month, but whatever your profession or hobby, it’s worth checking to see if it’s on StackExchange. (Genealogy falls under the Life/Arts heading.)
Best in your research!
