52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 41

Week 41: Review message board posts that pertain to your genealogy interests, or in your local area. One of the best places to browse lists is the RootsWeb index page that’s part of Ancestry.com. Use this week to browse some lists and see the types of questions that are being asked. If you’re very familiar with RootsWeb, return to some of the lists you haven’t visited in a while. Some queries are written better than others, so note what information you think is essential to a good discussion post. Blog authors can discuss any aspect of message boards and their posts with readers.

This challenge runs from Saturday, October 9, 2010 through Friday, October 15, 2010.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
