Dissertation Help request

Hi all,

I am in my final year of a new media course in the UK and I am currently working on my final thesis / dissertation looking at online genealogy services and the potential impact that social networking might have.

I have produced a small survey which aims to explore peoples’ motivations towards genealogy and would really appreciate it if there is anyone who might spend 10-15 minutes sharing their thoughts and wisdom. The link is:


I hope to take my research further once I graduate and I am currently developing a Facebook and Bebo application, which would look to connect families across social networks and hopefully help find long-lost relatives. I would be interested to know of any thoughts people may have around this idea.

Many thanks for your time
