52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog has another successful series on her hands.  After last year’s popular Jump Start Your Genealogy Blog: 52 Ideas. 52 Weeks, she’s come up with a new series of weekly prompts called 52 Weeks To Better Genealogy.

The goal: to get all genealogists and family historians – both new to the field as well as the “lifers” – to stretch their brains and examine certain aspects of what some of us pursue as a past time, some as a profession and all as a passion.

GeneaBloggers will announce the challenge for the week in the weekly Upcoming Genealogy Blogging Events post every Friday.  At the same time, an event will be created over at the GeneaBloggers Group on Facebook (the first week’s challenge is here).  The challenge period will be Saturday through to the following Friday.

And in addition, during the week GeneaBloggers will create a “progress post” with a roll-up widget listing those who are participating.

Those who want to participate simply need to follow the cues and post about the exercise at their genealogy blog.  As Amy says, these should be fun exercises! Don’t feel that you have to participate each week, nor should you beat yourself up if you miss one or more challenges. We all have so much that we want to accomplish – let alone what we want to accomplish with our genealogy blogs. This series should be one which, by the end of 2010, helps you to be a better genealogist.

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.
