Out of Their Element – Genealogy Bloggers in the APG Quarterly

APG Quarterly

You never know where you’ll find a genealogy blogger. Besides the comfortable milleu of their blog or blogs, sure you can find these genealogists on Facebook and Twitter. But did you know that in the September 2010 issue of the Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly, you’ll find no less than three well-known genealogy bloggers?

  • In the News You Can Use – Reviews section, Amy Coffin of The We Tree blog, offers a review of the book All a Twitter: A Personal and Professional Guide to Social Networking with Twitter by Tee Morris.  A social media expert herself, I could not have chosen a better person to review this 280 page handbook that covers not only the ins and outs of Twitter but basic social media concepts as well.
  • In the News You Can Use – Professional Profiles section, our very own Steve Danko of Steve’s Genealogy Blog is profiled. Entitled Embracing His Polish Heritage, the segment focuses on Steve’s search for Katarzyna Tropilo and how with this research and all his research, Steve uses his blog to document the journey.
  • In a feature article entitled Thought of Self-Publishing?, Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog, reviews the process of publishing a manuscript using some of the latest technologies available on the Internet. With Lisa’s “seven secrets for success,” one gets a much better understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of publishing on your own.

Congratulations to Amy, Steve and Lisa and we hope to see more members of GeneaBloggers in print soon!

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.
