GeneaBloggers Best Genealogy Moment of 2009

Randy Seaver at GeneaMusings has asked his fellow genealogy blogging colleagues to note their best genealogy moment of 2009.  Normally, GeneaBloggers only posts the roll-ups for these types of posts but since 2009 was a blockbuster year for GeneaBloggers, it is only fitting that such a moment be noted.

Easily, the best moment for GeneaBloggers in 2009 has to be the day this site was started – January 8, 2009.  That is when the domain name (and other variations) was secured.

Our first post was entitled A New Beginning which was January 18, 2009 and communicated the goals of this site while still reassuring those members of the GeneaBloggers Group on Facebook that the resources at that site would not dry up – that the .com site was merely another way to reach genealogy bloggers, especially those not on Facebook.

2009 has been a phenomenal year for GeneaBloggers and the thanks go out to all our supporters, all those who have made guest posts, those who’ve left comments of thanks and encouragement, those who have tweeted our posts as well as stumbled upon them.

Stay tuned to more anniversary info on January 18, 2010!

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. Honestly, I couldn’t imagine NOT having this site around. It is such a great learning tool and reference point – not to mention all of the fun people I get to meet. This is like the center of a community….and every community needs it center.

    Thomas (and all of the other guest authors) – thank you so much for doing what you do and making this site WONDERFUL!
