I’m Featured in A Major Genealogical Magazine

This is so cool – I’m featured in the cover article of a national genealogy magazine – FGS Forum!  FORUM is a publication of the Federation of Genealogical Societies and in their latest issue one of my projects for the TNGenWeb is highlighted. The article is based on an interview I did with Thomas MacEntee for Hack Genealogy where I discuss how I’ve used WordPress to build an site that houses hundreds of biographical profiles of individuals with Tennessee connections. Learn more over on the TNGenWeb blog.

Then, on top of that, as I continued to read through the rest of the issue, I saw that in her article “Blogging Tutorials and Resources,” Amy Coffin includes a nice summary of my WordPress webinar series I did last year with DearMyrtle and mentions my Using WordPress page (which has links to the webinar series). Thanks Amy for the inclusion!

I am really pleased to be able to share this project, and that Amy has shared my WordPress learning resources. I love using technology for my hobbies, and hopefully, others can learn from some of what I’m doing and sharing. I’m tickled pink about being all in this issue 🙂

    Congratulations on it. You know 23andme is trying to get as many West Africans of different ethnic groups aka tribes to test as much as possible for free to help African Americans. We need to see if there is a way to spread the word out more.

    Tanaya, congrats and I have to say I am not at all surprised. I have benefited greatly from your work with the TNGenWeb, since my maternal lines are all TN & the work you’ve done to educate us all on web apps is sorely needed. Keep doing all you’re doing!

    Thank you so much Robyn! I appreciate your kind words :-). I truly love being part of the USGenWeb project so whatever I can do to keep my states moving forward, I’m all for it. 🙂
