Contest for a new name

Generation Maps is growing and we need your help! We have known for quite a while that the name Generation Maps doesn't exactly express what this company does and we are ready now to make a change. So we're offering a


$300 Generation Maps Credit!
That could be
  • a working chart every year for the next 10 years
  • Two 30x40 giclee charts
  • or one HUMONGOUS family reunion charts.

We need your help to come up with a name that expresses the family/heritage aspect of this company and tells of the beautiful and professional charts that we create. But we are also looking for something that is snappy and memorable and expresses the fun we have printing charts for our clients.

You can submit your brilliant new name for Generation Maps at
Deadline April 4th 2011.

Thanks to all the geneabloggers who already got the information out about the contest during RootsTech. We've had several great ideas submitted already. Hurry and submit yours. First one to submit the best idea will be the winner.

Geneapress--The place to get genealogy news.

I'm very happy to announce a new blog that I'm hoping everyone in the genealogy community will read. It's called GeneaPress. ( I've been receiving lots of press releases and haven't been able to keep up with getting everything published like I would like to. There is also alot of redundancy in the blogging world if you read several of the popular blogs. This new blog will be a wonderful place for people to get the news first hand--from the press releases--and then your favorite bloggers will be able to stick more to the commentary on the news.

According to the "About" information on the blog:
GeneaPress is a communal effort by the genealogy and family history blogging community to manage the large number of press releases received from genealogy vendors and organizations. The goal is to create a repository where bloggers can link to the latest news about the genealogy industry.

Kudos again to Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers for leading out in another collaborative effort that will strengthen our genealogy community.
