More re: Jamestowne Society on Facebook

As we posted on March 22, the Jamestowne Society may be demonstrating some belated interest in joining the twenty-first century. The Jamestowne Society Facebook page started by Bud Walker of Fairfax, VA over a year ago is now jointly administered by the Society's Attorney General and webmaster, Susan Godman Rager. It is slowly growing with postings from admitted members that range from news of events and exchanges of ancestors' names to some interesting items from the Jamestown Rediscovery Facebook page.

While the Society's website has yet to offer a link to it or even acknowledge its existence, much less confirm that it could serve as one of its official organs, the FB page now has 227 members and is seemingly creating a following that is more representative of contemporary demographics than one would discern from the leadership in many of the companies or the Society itself.
