Geneabloggers Sponsors SCGS Jamboree Bloggers’ Summit

I’m happy to announce that Geneabloggers has signed on as the sponsor of what is sure to be a popular session at the Southern California Genealogical Society’s Jamboree 2009:  Summit 2 – Son of Blogger.

“Son of Blogger” is a 2 /12 hour blogging summit with a star-studded panel of geneabloggers including:

George G. Morgan, Moderator
Leland Meitzler
Dick Eastman
Stephen Danko, Ph.D.
Lisa Louise Cooke
Schelly Talalay Dardashti*
Craig Manson
The Ancestry Insider

The description from the SCGS Jamboree website:

Genealogy bloggers, podcasters, and videocasters use the Internet in new ways that have changed communications to genealogists and family historians. They focus on providing news, educational information, and much more, making this generation of genealogists the most informed of all time.

How do they get the information? How have bloggers changed the flow of information between vendors and their customers? How can genealogists create family history blogs to help exchange information and locate cousins? What are the ethical issues of blogging? What tips do these pros have for starting your own blog? What tools are available to help bloggers get up and running?

Email your questions to the panel before the session

To get an idea of what last year’s summit was like, check out Randy Seaver’s write-up over at Genea-Musings.

Over the next few days I will have more exciting news about Geneabloggers’ presence at SCGS including a Twitter meet up, some neat apparel items for members of Geneabloggers and more.

Can you tell I’m excited?

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.
