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.

  1. At first I was frustrated that he kept jumping around among the guests. I guess I wanted him to start at the top of a pedigree and move downward. By mid show I got use to the format and guess his approach would be more interesting to non genealogists.
    He finally got top some information that his guests didn’t know and I think that is what will generate interest. Finding the surprises.

  2. I couldn’t login to chat, but could hear some of it. Several people commented that Dr. Gates wasn’t showing the methodology. For non-genealogists, this would be tedious. Remember “Roots” wasn’t about the research, but the story. That being said, I do wish they would show some of the documents and say a bit about them. The Generations Project program does this, and I think WDYTYA will, as well. I loved the stories, and enjoy Gates programs.
