I have to confess I'm not as enamoured of LinkedIn as I am with Twitter or Blogger. I'm a great enthusiast of social media, but some unnerving messages spooked me a bit, a couple of years ago, and I've been more wary since then.
However, I'm becoming more convinced of LinkedIn's value, since making contact with the descendents of one of "my" Scottish antiquarians.
This is the third family I've made contact with, as it happens. The first was via a genealogy website, and the second through archival contacts. Strange to think that twenty years ago, we weren't even on the internet!
