Curious Fox Message Boards

One of the most useful tools I have found for contacting family members doing genealogy research are message boards and forums. I have made the majority of my family connections by posting brickwalls and queries to message boards. Patience is mandatory for this though, most of the time there may not be a response for months, even years after posting messages. There are the popular message boards on Ancestry.com, Rootsweb, Genealogy.com etc. Most genealogy sites have some form of message board or forum.
I discovered a new site solely intended for posing messages and queries, Curious Fox. Well I discovered it last year, but it was in Beta. Now, it’s out of Beta and up and running. You can search a place name or surname in any of the United States, but they also have links to their message board sites for the United Kingdom and Ireland at the bottom of the page. I think this will be a very popular site in the future.
