Using Business Cards for Your Genealogy
We are familiar with the convenience and effectiveness of business cards as way of communicating and networking. Business cards, however, are not limited to business community. In her article, "Using Business Cards for Your Genealogy," Gena Philibert-Ortega suggests printing and distributing business cards as a way of networking in genealogy. There's something about the material quality of a business card that people tend to hang onto them, especially those that may have some relevance down the road. Not only can they be used to help people remember who you and know how to get in touch with you, but also to communicate your research interests. The article discusses the benefits of using business cards for genealogy and suggests various methods for having them printed.
