New Feature: GeneaBlog Listing

Well I’ve finally figured out how to create a blog roll of genealogy and family history related blogs and pull the data from my Google Reader rather than manually add each URL as a link.  My challenge was to get the data to appear in a WordPress blog (which is the blogging platform used here at Geneabloggers).  I will explain the process in-depth over at Facebook Bootcamp for Geneabloggers later today.

Check out the new feature in the left sidebar.  Please note that several of the blogs are managed by people who are not members of Geneabloggers.  Right now I am trying to do a “settle up” and determine which blogs are owned by actual GB members, however Facebook does not make it easy to export the member list.

If your blog is not included on the list but should be, please let me know and I will add it as soon as I can.

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.
