FGS Announces Social Media Interns - Rebecca M Trujillo Batty and Jason Crews


The Federation of Genealogical Societies is pleased to announce the selection of two social media interns to assist with upcoming marketing and publicity initiatives.

Rebecca M Trujillo Batty

With over 30 years of experience working in genealogy, Rebecca is excited with each new tool that expands the possibilities in genealogical research. Social media sites are among these great tools that can bring many results. Rebecca can be found mostly using Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. You can read her blog at www.watsit2u.com and she is a Family Historian with www.familyhistoryengineers.com! Rebecca is also an avid reader, bingo player, fat activist (HAES), and amateur radio operator (KD7ZCP). She is also learning ASL and Spanish. Her favorite non-genealogy online activity is www.wheresgeorge.com.




Jason W. Crews

Jason W. Crews, an avid genealogist and family historian, is an active member of multiple genealogical organizations. Jason holds membership in Grand Prairie Genealogical Society, Dallas GenealogicalSociety, Lamar County Genealogical Society and Sons of Confederate Veterans. Jason served on the Marketing Committee for the Texas State Genealogical Society’s 2012 annual conference. Jason currently serves on the Genealogical Committee of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Col. M. T. Johnson Camp #1648. Jason is also a member of the GeneaBloggers community, where he writes about his personal genealogy and family history at GenealogySphere.com.

FGS would like to thank all those who expressed interest in this unique opportunity over the past few weeks. The Social Media Intern project is an initiative of the FGS Marketing & Public Relations Committee (M&PR) and both Rebecca and Jason will be mentored by FGS board members and M&PR Committee Chair Thomas MacEntee. Rebecca will be handling general FGS publicity tasks related to social media and Jason will be covering the social media needs for the Preserve the Pensions project.

Please welcome Rebecca and Jason and look for their posts on the FGS social media assets including Facebook and Twitter.
