GeneaBloggers On Vacation . . . Down Under

voyager of the seas

Well, in a few hours I fly out of Chicago to Hong Kong on my way to Australia where I’ll start a two-week genealogy speaking tour sponsored by Unlock the Past. With my first appearance in Brisbane on 1 February and ending on 15 February in Perth, I’ll also be one of the featured speakers on the 4th Unlock the Past Cruise from 3-13 February 2014.

Visiting Australia has been on my bucket list FOREVER and I’m excited to meet many new genealogists and my Australian genealogy bloggers whom I’ve met at past RootsTech events. Over the two weeks I’ll be speaking in Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth as well as several lectures on-board Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas.

So what does this mean about content here at GeneaBloggers? Well, I’ve tried to pre-post as much as possible and being on a cruise ship means not being “connected” in terms of The Internets.

This means you will see a decrease in activity here and on all our social media properties until I return on 18 February 2014. Check in at our Facebook page for updates on our trip!

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.
