Are you interested in genealogy but new to stackexchange/area51?

Proposal: Genealogy has been re-opened. But many genealogists are not familiar with stackexhange and the process to get the genealogy Q&A going. This discussion is a place for people to put tutorial information to encourage newbies to stackexchange to participate.

See Louis Kessler blog for a place to start.


I suggest everyone read the Area 51 FAQ at: http://area51.stackexchange.com/faq

The link to the FAQ is available at the top of the page when you are in the main Area 51 site. But note, when you are in the Discussion Zone (e.g. reading this answer), the link takes you to a FAQ only for the Discussion Zone.


Yes, I am a professional genealogist but I am new to Stack Exchange. I have heard of Stack Exchange, but I don't know much about it. I actually may know someone who works there.
