A Bridge To The Past

This site will follow my genealogy journeys — complete with failures, success stories, brick walls and tricks to get past them — and I invite my readers to share their triumphs, failures and tips as well.

for the love of ancestors

For The Love of Ancestors
Blog type: Family

Family history research is my passion. I love to find my own ancestors and I love to help others find their ancestors. I am the director of the Naperville Family History Center in Naperville, IL. I enjoy sitting beside someone at a computer while they learn the tools to find their ancestors. It is even more fulfilling and exciting when they find new information or a certificate that they didn’t have before. Their excitement and joy is truly rewarding. My maiden name is O’Neill and my paternal grandparents were Irish immigrants to the United States in the early years of the 20th century. My maternal ancestors were primarily English and German who chose opposing sides during the US Revolutionary War.

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.
