#FHX09-SLC Bloggers of Honor

family history expo 2009 salt lake city

The Salt Lake City Family History Expo 2009 begins tomorrow, August 28, 2009, in Sandy, Utah at the South Towne Exposition Center and even though I cannot attend, I am very excited about this event.

Why? Because there will be many fellow genealogy bloggers in attendance who will be using the latest social media tools (live blogging, Facebook, Twitter) to bring the expo to those of us who can’t attend.

Several of our colleagues have been designated as Bloggers of Honor by Family History Expos:

Holly T. Hansen: BlogTwitter

Anastasia Tyler: Blog

The Ancestry Insider: BlogTwitter

Arlene H. Eakle: BlogTwitter

Gena Philibert Ortega: BlogWVR BlogTwitter, and WVR Twitter

Jean Wilcox Hibben: Blog

Lee R. Drew: FamHist Blog and Lineage Keeper BlogTwitter

Lisa Alzo: BlogTwitter

Lisa Louise Cooke: BlogTwitter

Renee Huskey: BlogTwitter

Renee Zamora: BlogTwitter

Use the links above to follow them during the expo and you’ll get some valuable information and a “taste” of what it is like to be at a Family History Expo.

In addition you can follow Family History Expos on Twitter at  @FHExpos and attendees have been asked to use the Twitter hashtag #FHX09-SLC in their tweets.

Finally, I will be tagging blog posts in my Google Reader so they can be seen here on this post.  And I’ll have a “sticky post” on the front page of GeneaBloggers so that it can easily be accessed during the expo.

Congratulations to Holly Hansen and her excellent team for what looks to be a great event.  And if you are travelling to attend, please be safe and we look forward to hearing about the expo in your blog posts, tweets and status updates!

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.
