Family Tree Magazine Mentions High-Definition Genealogy

Family Tree Magazine

In the article entitled That’s A Wrap! in the September 2010 issue of Family Tree Magazine, I’m quoted on page 9 discussing the ratings for the US version of Who Do You Think Are?

Not only was some of the ratings analysis used as part of the article by Diane Haddad, but I also gave my permission for a ratings chart to be included.  The chart shows the number of viewers during the seven-episode season of the television show.

You can read more about how the show did in its premiere season in the post Ratings Analysis of Who Do You Think You Are? This is the type of market research on the genealogy industry that High-Definition Genealogy provides not only to genealogy vendors and genealogists, but also to other businesses looking to sell to and interact with the genealogy community.

It’s 10:00 PM – Do You Know Where Your Genealogy Data Is?

I’ve updated the Articles section of High-Definition Genealogy and as you can see I’ve been churning out quite a few pieces of writing lately! I also have some writing deadlines coming up including articles for national genealogical society newsletters, a nationally-known genealogy magazine as well as a chapter in a new edition of a popular genealogy book!

My latest article entitled “It’s 10 PM – Do You Know Where Your Genealogy Data Is?” has been posted at Archives.com.  I really enjoy writing these “how to” articles with practical advice and links to sites and resources – most, if not all are free.

[Disclaimer: this was an assignment for Archives.com in which I was paid to produce a 1800 word article on the subject of digital preservation.  In February 2010, I wrote a similar article for Archives.com with similar payment terms.  In addition to payment, I also received a complimentary membership to Archives.com.]

Transitioning A Genealogy Society

I recently was asked to participate in a series of guest posts entitled Summer of Genealogy Wishes over at the Gen Wish List blog.  Tina Lyons runs a super site which has lots of useful information for genealogists including ideas about genealogy societies.

Check out my guest post entitled Genealogy Societies: The Transition Balance Beam which discusses various approaches a genealogy society can take to begin using 21st century technology and marketing techniques.  These approaches can ensure not only attracting newer and younger members, but also retain older and loyal members as well.
