End of an era at Geneabloggers

US based Thomas MacEntee has announced that the Geneabloggers platform (, which documents new and merging blogs available online of interest to the family history community, is to wind down, with the following changes happening this month:

The following features will no longer appear as of May 1, 2017:

* Daily Blogging Beat
* Genealogy Blogging Events
* New Genealogy Blogs

The following features will run until May 31, 2017:

* May I Introduce to You
* The Archive Lady

Existing content will, however, remain online. In a blog post at Thomas has cited changes in the way that users are now accessing and presenting their information online as a reason for this development, and has also announced some further projects he will be developing in due course. Well worth a read...
