The Winner of the GeneaBloggers E-News Contest Is . . .

Winner

Congratulations to Kerryn Taylor, a member of GeneaBloggers from Australia and author of the Ancestor Chasing blog, who is the big winner in our GeneaBloggers E-News contest!

Here’s what Kerryn said via e-mail when she found out she was the winner:

My husband and I have a small rural general store/cafe which is open 7 days a week so I don’t get out much. I’m fairly new to geneablogging and I just love the community spirit of it.  I’ve “met” and learned a lot from so many wonderful people   It gives me a social life I otherwise wouldn’t have with the added bonus of allowing me to indulge my love of genealogy and family history. My blogspot is http://ancestorchaser.blogspot.com.au/.

I’m really looking forward to your new newsletter and  I’m sure everyone will gain a lot from it.

Thank you for running the competition which allowed me to win the  Amazon gift card. I have always wanted to buy an external hard drive to keep a back up of my computer and family history files and photos but there has never been quite enough spare cash.  Now, thanks to you and GeneaBloggers 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.
