Chicago, Illinois and South Jordan, Utah: Announcing a new initiative benefiting genealogy consumers and content providers alike, GeneaBloggers.com and GeneaBloggersTRIBE.com have agreed to streamline features to meet consumer expectations and provide blogger support. Thomas MacEntee will continue working to assure great deals for the wider genealogy community via the GeneaBloggers.com site. A team of dedicated bloggers will expand support for family history bloggers under the new domain GeneaBloggersTRIBE.com.
“Genealogy consumers need Thomas’ direction to continue creating great deals on genealogy site membership, books, and DNA test kits. His masterful approach gets the job done. He has certainly improved my bottom line,” says Pat Richley-Erickson, author of the DearMYRTLE Genealogy blog.
Thomas says, “It’s exciting that DearMYRTLE, a respected blogger and community builder in the family history sector, has agreed to lead the GeneaBloggersTRIBE transition team. I look forward to the valuable and creative content the team will produce.”
What began in 2007 with Jasia Smasha’s Carnival of Genealogy, morphed into the GeneaBloggers group supporting online genealogy writers. In January 2009, Thomas began robust community building around conference attendance, blogger beads and a website of resource assistance.
