Be careful what you wish for:
Discovering a remarkable amount of personal information on the site (Family Tree Now )—including age, home addresses (current and past) and names of family members and loved ones, maybe too much for safety.
For historical society message boards:
You can enter your ancestor’s or distant relative’s name at Google. Put the name in quotation marks. Seems almost too simple but it works quite often because your ancestor may be listed in someone else’s lineage at a gen site.
