Welcome New GeneaBloggers Partner – Conference Keeper

Conference Keepers

I’m proud to announce a new partnership with Conference Keeper here at GeneaBloggers!

Conference Keeper, created by Jen Baldwin, has quickly become one of the best resources to keep track of upcoming genealogy and family history conferences and events.

With the growing popularity of the GeneaBloggers site and trying to meet the needs of my consulting clients as well as serve on the board of several volunteer groups, I’m no longer able to enter genealogy-related events into the Google calendars that I maintain. (Don’t worry – this does not include blogiversaries!  I will always have time for that!)

When a business or endeavor like GeneaBloggers grows, you start looking for better ways to do things and for ways to work smarter and be more efficient. In this case, I figured why do the same thing that someone else in the community is doing just as well as I am, if not better. I feel Jen can do a better job at organizing the conference info, posting the calls for papers and more. The Conference Keeper site has a great look and is easy to navigate. If you haven’t yet paid a visit, I ask you to do so soon!

And if you find a genealogy conference or event that you feel should be included, make sure contact Conference Keeper and send Jen the details.


Over the next few weeks, I hope to announce more partnerships at GeneaBloggers that will not only improve the content you find here, but that will also help build a stronger genealogy community.

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.

  2. Thank you, Denise! The site has grown extensively since it first went up in Nov 2012, and I am very excited about this new partnership with GeneaBloggers. Please continue to add more events as you plan them or learn of them; always looking for more. ~ Jen
