Genealogy Blogging Survey Contest

GeneaBloggers is hosting a contest and by completing our survey about genealogy blogs you could win a free one-year subscription to GenealogyBank!

I am happy to say that GeneaBloggers has been able to partner with GenealogyBank on this effort to gain valuable insight into who reads and creates genealogy blogs as well as how they are used in genealogy research.  The survey questions are easy to answer and the data will help GeneaBloggers  identify demographics, trends and habits among genealogy blog readers and authors. This information will be used to add new features at GeneaBloggers, to help us identify trends in the genealogy blogging community and to work with genealogy vendors to help improve their offerings.

GenealogyBank has donated the prize: a one year subscription to its exclusive newspaper archive for family history research which provides information on millions of American families from 1690–today. Over 3,800 newspapers provide first-hand accounts about your ancestors that simply can’t be found in other sources. You’ll be fascinated by the stories, names, dates, places and events that have played a role in your family’s history.

Contest rules can be accessed here and you can find the survey here.  Remember to include your e-mail address at the end of the survey to enter the contest!

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. Got 87% through, completed page about online seminars, hit continue, but the next screen took me back to the very first screen – did not ask for email address, claimed survey had already been completed when I tried to go back :( If you did get it I imagine you’ll be able to tell it was from me though, I’ll likely be a demographic all of my own!
