Immigration Family History Expo March 18 2010

Immigration Family History Expo

Just a quick note to let you know that a good friend of genealogy bloggers could use your help.

As you may know, the Family History Expos website experienced a major meltdown last month – to the point where even the backup data was lost!  Ancestry Insider has a great post describing in detail what happened (see Major Failure of Utah Computer Center.  Could you imagine losing all your blog data (despite faithful backups) or even the data for your business?

Miss Holly and her fantastic team at Family History Expos have been very supportive of the genealogy blogging community and now I’d like to ask a small favor.  If you can do one or more of the following it would help get the word out about the upcoming Immigration Family History Expo as well as their new website:

  • Let your readers know that if they would like to receive Family History Expo’s free email newsletter they need to sign up at the new website  http://www.fhexpos.com/
  • Follow Family History Expos on Twitter @FHExpos

And if you’ve never attended a Family History Expo event come join me later this year – I will be appearing in Loveland, CO (June 25-26, 2010), Kansas City, MO (July 30-31, 2010), Pleasanton, CA (October 8-9, 2010) and Atlanta, GA (November 12-23, 2010).

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.
