family tree knots

Family Tree Knots
http://familytreeknots.blogspot.ca
Blog type: Canada, Canadian, Family

We all have them within our family tree. Whether you call them “brick walls” or “knots” they are the people that present us the biggest challenges. They’ve moved away without a forwarding address, changed their name or just up and disappeared seemingly without a trace. Here I will be writing about my own research challenges or the challenges where I’ve helped other people.

happy genealogy dance

Happy Genealogy Dance
http://happygenealogydance.blogspot.com
Blog type: Family

I’m writing this blog for anyone who will read it. I’m writing it for myself. But most of all, I’m writing it to honor the people of our past, plain and simple, or royal and regal, or somewhere in between.

My plan is to post primarily on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Tuesdays will be a miscellaneous kind of day. Maybe I’ll mention a book I’m reading, or a new genealogy find, or the results of a trip to a courthouse or library.  I’ll also post my “missing” ancestors here, in the hope that someone will recognize them and be able to offer additional information or help.

Fridays I’ll write about a specific person or family. I will try to label these so you will know whether this is someone in the Harshbarger, Beeks, Allen, or Holbrook family, and will then know whether you want to read further, or not.

A word of warning:  I am writing for family, not for the world of scholars and genealogists. I may mention sources in passing, but it will not be in the format desired by the genealogy world. I can spend weeks or months trying to master those rules, or I can write and share what I have. I’ll be writing and sharing!

Nick Thorne is The Nosey Genealogist. He has been researching his family tree for over 7 years and along the way he has picked up all sorts of tips and tricks on how to break down those wretched brick walls that hamper family historians. By reading around the subject and completing various courses he has gained a fair bit of knowledge that he is willing to share with you.

the long way home

The Long Way Home
http://shamwest.wordpress.com/
Blog type: Canadian, France, French-Canadian, Ireland, Irish, Scotland, Scottish

I am what I like to think of as a truly Canadian girl, that is one of mixed Scots, Irish and Metis ancestry. A combination of country girl tempered with the upbringing of a family who lived close to their roots.  This, a journal of the joy and frustration of trying to piece together my ancestry.

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.
