Deseret News - GeneaBloggers

Check out the article entitled Genealogy meets the blogosphere: Using social media for family history research in the July 14, 2011 issue of the Deseret News where GeneaBloggers and several genealogy bloggers are interviewed.

The article by Hillary Bowler does a good job at giving readers an overview of blogging about genealogy and how it has become an important part of documenting one’s research efforts. Also interviewed in the article are Jim Ericson of FamilySearch, Lisa Louise Cooke of the Genealogy Gems Podcast,  Margaret Cason of the Their Hearts Shall Turn blog, and Mona Magno-Veluz of the Ang Aming Angkan blog.

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.
