52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 50

Week 50: Check out your regional archives. Last week’s challenge had you checking out the genealogy-related web pages at the National Archives. This week, your task is to explore the offerings at regional National Archives facilities. Use the map to find the regional office close to you. Just like last week, click links and browse. What types of collections are at your regional location? Challenge participants outside the United States can explore their own regional government archives/records offices.

This challenge runs from Saturday, December 11, 2010 through Friday, December 18, 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.
