52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 49

Week 49: Check out the National Archives Genealogy page. There also is a Start Your Genealogy Research page that may be of interest. Don’t try to do any research, just click links and explore the contents. The goal of this week’s challenge is to introduce you to these collections, or for more experienced genealogists, remind you of what they contain. If you are doing this challenge from outside the United States, explore the national archives of your country for collections pertinent to genealogy. Some resources include the National Archives of Australia, the National Archives (UK) and more. If you write a genealogy blog, you may share and interesting items you found with your readers.

This challenge runs from Saturday, December 4, 2010 through Friday, December 10, 2010.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
