Celebrate Your Family History Contest with GenClass

GenClass logo

GenClass is an on-line provider of genealogy education and they are holding a contest to give away a free course:

October is National Family History Month and GenClass will give away a free course of choice to one lucky winner. Tell us in 1200 words or less the most creative way you’ve honored your ancestors and what inspired you to do so. It could be in a book, a quilt, music, artwork, etc. The description should be in words only (no images, please). Please type or paste your text into the body of an e-mail message and use the subject line: GenClass Celebrate Family History Contest and send your submission to: lisa.genclass@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is Monday, October 5th (midnight Eastern Daylight Time). One winner will be randomly drawn from all submissions received by the deadline, and the winning entry will be published in a future issue of the GenClass newsletter. The winner will be announced in the next GenClass newsletter. Please spread the word to your friends and colleagues.

I know that most genealogy bloggers have posted about some project in which they honored an ancestor – a self-published book, a photo collage, or even a tribute post itself!  Good luck!

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.
