Carol Kostakos Petranek, who was already assisting the GeneaBloggers leadership team, has generously agreed to be our new membership chairperson.

Carol Kostakos Petranek Membership Chair 2020

A key duty of the Membership chair is managing new premium membership subscriptions. She also wants to explore ways to elevate recognition for GeneaBloggers, so watch this space for new announcements.

She’ll also coordinate closely with Shannon Thomas, who, along with Laura Hedgecock, maintains our membership roll and posts blogiversary and welcome posts.

Carol, who blogs about her Greek Ancestry at Spartan Roots and has been instrumental in launching, explains why she’s looking forward to her new role:

Through the GeneaBloggers organization, writers can both be both educators and learners. Together, we can advance the joys of family history discoveries and preserve our stories and heritage… We’re a unique group. We do things no one else does, and we support each other.
