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.

  1. Thanks for posting this! It will definitely help me blog more consistently since I can tell in advance what I need to write about.

  2. Thanks, Thomas! It will help me so much knowing the upcoming events for 52 weeks! Should motivate me to corner my mom for some answers! :)

  3. Thank you! I especially like it that the weekly prompts for 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History are on there. That way I can plan ahead for a post. Last year, often I didn’t post because I didn’t have time that particular week.

  4. Thanks for this, as that will help my planning for preparation,thinking & blogging.

    Just a thought on 25th Jan is Burns night which might make an interesting blog point?
