He’s known as one of the “old-timers”, and it has nothing to do with his age. It has to do with his genealogy and blogging experience.
May I Introduce to You…Randy Seaver?
Randy is the author of four blogs: The Geneaholic, Randy’s Busy Life, Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe, and, of course, Genea-Musings. I think it’s fair to say that Randy is most known for his Genea-Musings blog. He started that blog in April 2006 with his first post Who? Me? Blog? OK…. From that first tentative posting, Randy has taken to blogging like a duck to water. He’s a natural. And it’s easy to see his passion is genealogy.
If you want to keep up with what is going on in the genealogy world, then look now further than Genea-Musings. Randy knows what’s going on and regularly posts about it. If you are wanting to add a bit of fun to your genealogy life, then check out Randy’s weekly post Saturday Night Genealogy Fun. If you don’t have time to read all of the genea-blogger’s blogs, then check out Best of the Genea-Blogs. Randy says “My criteria for “Best of …” are pretty simple – I pick posts that advance knowledge about genealogy and family history, address current genealogy issues, provide personal family history, are funny or are poignant. I don’t list posts destined for the genealogy carnivals, or other meme submissions (but I do include summaries of them), or my own posts.”
If you aren’t already a regular reader or visitor to Genea-Musings, I encourage you to check it out. I’m sure once you visit, you will see why Randy is one of our genea-blogger “old-timers”.

Bienvenue! I am excited to share with you two blogs this week. Both of them have a lot in common. Both are authored by Canadian women who live in Canada. Both have Acadian and French Canadian roots going back hundreds of years. Both of these blogs focus on Acadian & French Canadian genealogy.
Est-ce que je peux présenter à vous … (May I introduce to you…) Aline Cormier of Acadian Roots.
According to Aline’s blogger profile, she has been doing genealogy since 1976, and has been on the Internet since 1999. She started her blog, Acadian Roots on April 11, 2006. Aline shares her family history and her knowledge of Acadain life and culture. Although, I don’t have any Acadian roots myself, I find Aline’s articles to be very interesting. Aline finds those little tidbits of information which truly make her genealogy a family history. I especially liked this story she posted about her mother on Tuesday, April 25, 2006, as well as this post about two young lovers called a Tragic Romance.
And, now for our next GeneaBlogger.
Est-ce que je peux présenter à vous …Evelyn Yvonne Theriault of A Canadian Family aka Evelyn of Montreal.
Have your ever wondered what a “dit” name was? Or why French Canadian genealogy is so confusing at times? Well, Evelyn answers these questions and more on her blog. She has only been on the blogging scene since this past December when she posted her Introduction. Evelyn may be a newbie geneablogger but don’t let that fool you into thinking she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Because she does! Evelyn’s articles are chock full of information plus old maps, old postcards, documents, videos and photographs. Plus she has Famous Relatives: Rene Levesque, Quebec Nationalist. If you don’t know who he is or why he important to Quebec and French Canadians, just ask Evelyn.
Please drop by Acadian Roots and A Canadian Family, leave a comment and welcome them to the GeneaBloggers group.

I think you will agree that I would be remiss if I did not profile this geneablogger for the “May I Introduce to You…” article.
He calls himself “The Pearl Mesta of geneabloggers and Facebook. A 40-something genealogy and technology enthusiast looking to combine both. ”
May I introduce to you…
Thomas has been blogging about his family history since December 28, 2006. He is the owner of (at least) eight blogs and one wiki. His main family history blog is Destination: Austin Family. Here you will find all about Thomas and his family. There are two posts in particular I invite you to read:
Kenny’s Choice: A Veteran’s Day Tribute and Alzheimer’s Disease – A Duty and A Toll.
These articles show the true heart of Thomas.
But not everything about Thomas is so serious. Take a look at It’s Just A Jump To The Left… He is also known to participate in just about every meme that goes around the geneabloggersphere.
GeneaBloggers is because of the contributing hard work of Thomas. He is involved with promoting us everywhere – Facebook, Twitter, etc. He regularly posts helpful tips and techniques on Facebook Bootcamp for Geneabloggers.
And if that were not enough, Thomas is related to a whole bunch of us GeneaBloggers – Randy Seaver, Midge Frazel, Becky Wiseman, Lorine McGinnis Schulze, and me, plus a few more, I’m sure I have missed. Who knows? He might be related to you.
Ever helpful, full of technological genealogy knowledge, plus a wicked sense of humour, I’m sure you will agree that the geneabloggersphere just would not be the same without Thomas MacEntee.
