Open Thread Thursday – Your 2011 Predictions for the Genealogy Industry

open thread

This week’s topic for Open Thread Thursday is:

You’ve been given a very powerful crystal ball to see into the future, to the end of 2011. You can’t use it for Mega Millions numbers or to spy on your in-laws. It only works for predicting the future of the genealogy industry. Tell us what you see.

Take a look at the predictions made earlier today by Genea Dixon here at GeneaBloggers for inspiration. And please, let’s make this a fun topic – no personal attacks or agendas (I hate to have to say this, but I do.)

* * *

Please either post on today’s topic of “Your 2011 Predictions for the Genealogy Industry” at your own blog and then post the link here in the comments or simply add your two cents in the comments section.

    This is a great topic for this week’s Open Thread Thursday! And please, if you have a topic you’d like to see discussed among your genealogy blogging colleagues, please contact us and we’ll take it under consideration.

    1. The one prediction I feel safe making is that the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War will be the nexus of a great many genealogy and family history developments. It will influence public and private conversations about the continuing impact of secession, slavery and emancipation, and states’ rights, sparking an amazing array of blog posts. It will also encourage families to dig out Civil War-era documents and institutions to digitize as many of them as possible.
