GeneaBloggers On Vacation – What This Means To Our Readers


I don’t have to make these types of announcements very often, mostly because I tend to vacation where I can get an Internet connection. But starting tomorrow, Thursday, September 29, 2011 through Sunday, October 9, 2011, I will be on the Legacy Family Tree Cruise of New England and Canada along with almost 200 other genealogists. Once the cruise lands back in New York on Saturday, October 8, 2011, I will travel upstate to visit family and then return home to Chicago the next day.

So what does this mean to you, dear reader? Well with Internet being very high-priced on board the Explorer of the Seas, I won’t be able to tag all the posts for the Daily Blogging Prompts here nor will I be able to answer email as quickly as I usually do. It also means there will be no New Genealogy Blogs post for Saturday, October 8, 2011 but the feature will return the following week.

Friends and family have a betting pool going as to whether or not I will actually survive this “off the grid” event. At the very least they expect me to be hanging off the ship’s railing in port cities trying to pick up a signal on my netbook or iPhone.

I will be visiting many port cities and even meeting up with other members of GeneaBloggers and radio show listeners. And on Thursday, October 6, 2011 I will be leading an excursion with 50 of the cruise passengers to the New England Historic Genealogical Society for a day of research.

Finally, I will make updates as possible but there are no guarantees. But I’ve preposted for the next two weeks and GeneaBloggers Radio has some great special hosts and guests coming up so I think we’ll all get by.

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.
