WikiCFP – A Call for Papers Wiki


A neat resource for genealogy speakers is WikiCFP which tracks the various “calls for papers” put forth by conferences. I have been entering all genealogy-related conferences and their call for papers deadlines as a I get hold of the information.  You can see all the current and past deadlines by clicking here.

WikiCFP - Genealogy

WikiCFP is also a good tool to use if looking for related conferences – those that may not explicitly be related to genealogy but they might accept presentations about genealogy as long as it meets the subject matter criteria of the conference.

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.
