Journey to the Past is Now on Pinterest

Pinterest is my latest social media obsession.  I had my own Pinterest page (BrendaLeyndyke) that had genealogy boards on it, but the genealogy boards were getting lost among the recipes, decorating, and garden ones.

Last week I decided to create my Journey to the Past Pinterest page. Now when you click on the P in the upper right of this blog, it will take you to the Journey to the Past boards.

I find so many pages of information related to genealogy that I couldn't keep those finds organized with bookmarks.  I decided to start using Pinterest for this information.  I organized my boards by record types, places, tips etc.

Also, I added boards that are related to my blog.  For example, I pin all my Ancestor Biographies onto an Ancestor Biographies board.  I have my Last Day Local-Battle Creek posts on The Cereal City, Battle Creek board.

I have said before that I love being organized and using Pinterest helps me stay organized.


  1. I am quite new to Pinterest, so was interested to read how you are using it for genealogy. Food for though! Thank you.

  2. Dear Sue, I like Pinterest and use it much like I do bookmarks or favorites. I just wish every site had a pinnable picture on it.
