Resources For Free Icons For Your Blog Or Website


Icons can really make a difference in terms of “tricking out” your genealogy blog or website.  The main problem is how to find icons that truly are free and don’t require purchase, royalties or attribution.

Below is GeneaBloggers‘ updated list of free icon resources.  Please read the information at each site carefully – for some, icons are only free if you are using a Creative Commons license or if used on a non-commercial site.  It is your duty to understand the Terms of Service and usage rules for each set of icons.

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.
