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.

One thought on “Who Do You Think You Are? Rita Wilson Episode Review

  1. I was impressed by how brave Rita’s grandfather was. He suffered so much, for such unjust political reasons, and yet was bold enough to escape prison camp. And he lived his whole life without sharing his tribulations with his children. Such a stoic. I was amazed that the genealogists were able to find actual letters with the details of her grandfather’s stories. How often does that happen? What a climactic moment when she could actually hug her grandfather’s brother, and receive a direct message from him.
