GeneaBloggers Mentioned in Today’s New York Times

The New York Times

A few weeks ago, while I was making a visit back home in New York, I received an inquiry from a reporter for the New York Times who needed information on genealogy and technology/social media. As I drove down the New York State Thruway to Newark Airport, I gave her a call and we chatted for about 30 minutes.

As a result, not only was I quoted and mentioned in today’s article entitled Finding Family History Online, but I was happy to see that several vendors that I mentioned were also included.

I just wish that every blog and vendor could have been mentioned in the article but this is a good start – hopefully the non-genealogy public will come to understand the ways in which technology and the Internet have made family history not just fun but more accessible and just as important as it ever was.

  1. Very impressive Thomas! As always you are right out there in the front row doing your part to showcase our community!

  2. Hi Thomas. I tell you, you are just everywhere! Geneabloggers is absolutely fantastic and I won’t tell you how many blogs I follow because it is insane. I am quite jealous actually, because I would love to attend a Conference someday. They are never in my part of the world. The bloggers say so many neat things about them and I’m just dying to attend someday.

    How about a conference in Portland, Oregon? Just letting you know my wish. I would be there in a flash!

    I liked the article you shared today. Good for you Thomas.
