A Home In Missouri
http://ahomeinmissouri.blogspot.com

A. Warde & Co.
http://awardeandco.blogspot.com
Blog type: Family

How do you do? I’m Ameya Warde, historical persons researching detective extraordinaire! (Or, if you’d rather, a “genealogist.”)

I’m only in my mid-twenties, but due to being a precocious and history-obsessed child, I have been doing family history research for around 18 years. Of course, almost all of that childhood research has been trashed in light of my grown up interest in “checking sources for legitimacy,” “citation,” and “researching more places than just Ancestry.com.” I am in the early stages of applying for genealogical certification and I’m enjoying the process of going back over all that I’ve done since to make sure it is all up to the genealogical proof standard.

I have no idea why it has taken me so long to find the genealogy community online, but here I am. Hi! If you enjoy rambling, .gifs, memes, and affectionate irreverence, you should subscribe to the feed, and follow me on the other social media places, and you know, hiring me is also a really good and cool thing to do. Yep!

heartbreak and hope

Heartbreak & Hope: Stories of Ellis Island
http://blog.hornblower.com/heartbreakandhope/
Blog type: Immigration

More than 14 million people came to the United States through the Ellis Island Immigration Center in New York. These are the stories of those immigrants and their families.

Marianne Perry
http://www.marianneperry.ca/blog/
Blog type: Canada, Canadian, Family, Italian

A second generation Canadian-Italian, Marianne’s interest in her Calabrian-Sicilian roots has fuelled her genealogical research to solve family mysteries. Along with researching family history, Marianne’s writing reflects her extensive traveling, a passion for adventure, an interest in establishing connections and a yearning to understand our world.

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.
