New Genealogy Blog Category – Appalachian Genealogy


We’ve introduced a new category in our sidebar for genealogy blogs that deal with Appalachian Genealogy.  Last week, we introduced readers to a new blog – Appalachian Aristocracy – Adventures In Family History – in the weekly New Genealogy Blogs post and soon realized the need for this new category.

There seem to be many genealogy blogs in the GeneaBloggers blog roll that would also fall within this Appalachian Genealogy category.  While I am not an expert on the area, I believe that the region of Appalachia is general considered to encompass Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The best way to get your own genealogy blog listed in the Appalachian Genealogy category would be to drop us an e-mail at and let us know.  Send us the name of your blog(s) and the URL link and we’ll take care of it.

And in the meantime please pay a visit to Appalachian Aristocracy which is chock-full of resources for researchers of Appalachian genealogy.

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. Could you also add one for New England? My ancestors lived through several border disputes between New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts, and over time they moved from state to state, or to Boston and back for employment. My blog is listed under New Hampshire, but carries many stories about Massachusetts, and Maine.

  2. I originally had some regional categories such as New England, Middle Atlantic, Southwest, etc. Perhaps I can re-institute them and add the respective blogs. I’ll announce it when it is done.

    Thanks Heater for the suggestion!
