Follow Friday – Root Cellar's Message Boards

[Editor's Note: Today's post was written by Richard Hanson.]

One of the under-used features of Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society's new website is its Forums page (message boards). A message board allows logged-in members to post new textual messages and reply to existing posted messages. Each message board has an assigned topic.

Root Cellar's message boards can be browsed by the visiting public. But the visitor must be logged-in to post messages or replies. Root Cellar currently has messages boards for the following topics.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
General Genealogy & How-TO
Reunion for Mac Software & SIG
Legacy Family Tree Software
Roots Magic Software
Family Tree Maker Software

The problem here is that these message boards are deader than cemeteries on a Monday night.

So what message board topics would motivate YOU to view and post messages? Topics could pertain to an area of knowledge, a genealogical activity, a product, a location, some part of history, some aspect of problem solving, Root Cellar meetings plus many other possibilities. Please post your ideas as replies to this blog.
