Jamestowne Society on Facebook

Some Jamestowne Society members are gently pushing it into the 20th, if not the 21st, century.

We have been watching the recent growth of a Jamestowne Society Facebook page, and it is worth a look. It is a needed and probably valuable tool to help make younger potential applicants aware of it, and give it a much-needed modern flavor.

According to Susan Rager, the Society's webmaster, "...this is not an official Jamestowne Society page, but rather was started and is maintained by a dedicated [Society] member."

However, she approves and frequently posts to it. It is worth a look back over the past few months' posts to see queries about the Society, visits to Historic Jamestown and success in joining.
