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. Heather – I was disappointed in that I could not find many pre-made templates for Thanksgiving. I also wanted to hold off until after Thanksgiving to decorate my personal blog but I also wanted to make sure genealogy bloggers had resources available for their decorating needs.

  2. I don’t mind Christmas coming early! I was singing carols in the car to the radio today. It’s just that Thanksgiving is a much more genealogy friendly holiday, especially to people here in New England or us folks with Pilgrims in the family tree.

  3. Yeah! I did it. Thanks Thomas for the education. It worked. A little scary at first when you hit that delete button but relatively easy. A little tweeking still required, some of my gadgets are giving me a bit of trouble but for my first time it was pretty simple.
