Your Feedback Needed on Site


It has been a little over a month since unveiled its new look and moved to a new template.  At this point we’d like some feedback as to what works, what doesn’t work and features you’d like to see here.

Most important right now is the list of genealogy blogs on the home page here at  The concern is that the list is too long and may be causing page loading problems for many visitors since it is auto-generated from the Google Reader page maintained by GeneaBloggers.

Options for the blog list include having only a link to a separate page – this link could be at the very top and made prominent so new visitors could easily see it.  Another option is to stress the Genealogy Blogs By Type page which might make it easier for users to find the genealogy blog they want.

Please consider entering your preference on the poll below.  Also in the Comments section on this post, please give us any feedback on the site that you think is important.  Thanks!

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.
