The Book of Me, Written By You – Prompt 35: Aunts and Uncles

book of me

[Editor’s Note: GeneaBloggers is participating in The Book of Me, Written By You project created by Julie Goucher of the Anglers Rest blog. The concept: a series of blogging and writing prompts that help family historians capture their own memories and write about themselves. Click here for more information.]

Prompt 35: Aunts and Uncles

As you may have noticed, I rarely have themed prompts, but this week unless you are related to me you would not know that today is always a sad and yet happy day in the April family calendar and in tribute to two very special people we have this week’s prompt. If you want to know more about my special people for 26th April, then stop by Anglers Rest later! So, without further ado.

  • Did you have Aunts and Uncles?
  • Did you know any of your Great Aunts and Uncles?
  • Did you have people that you called Aunt and Uncle, yet there was no blood connection at all? (In fact, does that even matter)
  • So this week, tell us those about those people whose names appear within our family history and perhaps you even had a favourite or two?

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.
