GeneaBloggers at FGS 2014 Conference in San Antonio This Week

FGS 2014
Many members of GeneaBloggers – at least 40 – will gather with thousands of genealogists in San Antonio, Texas this week starting today to attend the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ 2014 Conference.

 GeneaBloggers Members – BEADS!

This year’s edition of GeneaBloggers beads – with cowboy hats and cacti – are generously sponsored by MyHeritage. If you’ve signed up with us and your blog is currently listed on, stop by Booth 601/603 in the FGS 2014 Exhibit Hall and pick up your set. And while you’re there make sure to thank MyHeritage for their support of GeneaBloggers!

Stop By and Say Howdy!

I’ll be there presenting four lectures plus an Exhibit Hall session beginning on Wednesday 28 August 2014 – I can’t wait to meet up with my genealogy colleagues and I look forward to making new genealogy friends. If you are at FGS 2014, please stop and say hello – when I’m not lecturing, you’ll find my in the Exhibit Hall talking with vendors and other attendees. For those of you unable to attend, follow the hashtag #fgs2014 on Twitter for the latest news (see the Twitter feed in the sidebar)!

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.
