Our 900th Genealogy Blog – Faces Of America

Faces Of America

We’ve hit a milestone here at GeneaBloggers this afternoon – adding our 900th genealogy blog!  And the extra-special honor goes to the blog for the Faces of America television series which premieres on the PBS network 10 February 2010!

I swear I didn’t plan it this way.  Honest.  For some reason I didn’t realize there was an accompanying blog to the television series until I received a Google Alert.  I had already prepared the New Genealogy Blogs post (look for it tomorrow, Saturday 6 February 2010) and I knew we were close to 900.  By time I updated the post, I realized I could make it official.

Congratulations to Faces Of America for being #900!  And while we journey towards number 1,000 (can you believe it?), please stop by and visit the Faces Of America blog.  And don’t forget to tune in on 10 February!

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.

  1. Good question Mary – there are some genealogy blogs that aren’t active anymore – but I leave them on the list so they can be searched in our search engine – the content still has value to our readers.

    My rough estimate is there are about 500 active genealogy blogs.
