GeneaBloggers Events June 21 – 27, 2009

Here is a list of events, memes and goings-on in the world of geneablogging and what’s happening in the coming week:

SoCal Jamboree

I along with over 30 other genealogy bloggers will be in attendance at the Southern California Genealogical Society’s 40th Annual Jamboree in Burbank, CA beginning Friday, 26 June through Sunday, 28 June 2009.  If you are attending please look for me and all the other bloggers with our crazy mardi gras beads!

Happy Blogiversary!

On Thursday, 25 June, iPentimento celebrates its second anniversary! Stop by and wish Carol well!

Genealogy Blog Carnivals

Entries for the Graveyard Rabbits Carnival, 4th Edition are due on Thursday, 25 June.  The “challenge” for the July 2009 edition of the GYR Carnival is obituaries. That’s right! This one is going to be a challenge of sorts. The “rules” are quite simple: Find a grave, then find the obituary, or vice versa. Post your finds to your blog and submit it to the carnival.  Please submit your article using the blog carnival submission form, and be sure to include a brief description in the remarks field.

The Carnival of Central and Eastern European Genealogy, 20th Edition is accepting entries through Friday, 26 June.  The next edition will be hosted by Jessica Oswalt of Jessica’s Genejournal with the theme being: carnival (post on any topic).  You can submit your articles here.

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.
