If you are a member of GeneaBloggers and you’ll be at the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ annual conference in Springfield, Illinois, September 7-10, 2011, then make sure you join us for a fun meetup! Click here to see who is expected to attend.

On Thursday, September 8, 2011 at the Bennigan’s inside the Springfield Hilton, we’ll gather starting at 8pm to sit, talk and have some fun.  Stop by and say hello!

Also, I’ll have a special set of red, white and blue Mardi Gras beads for members of GeneaBloggers present at FGS 2011.

Finally, thanks to Kim Von Aspern of Le Maison Duchamp blog and Kathryn Doyle of the California Ancestors blog for organizing this event!

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.
