RootsTech Call For Papers – Are You In?


Well, I’ve just submitted my presentation proposals for the upcoming RootsTech conference to be held in Salt Lake City, February 10-12, 2011.  This event is sponsored by Family Search and promises to be the genealogy technology event of the year!

As previously announced here at GeneaBloggers, the deadline for the call for papers is Thursday, September 30, 2010. I urge all genealogy bloggers who have an interest in technology and genealogy to consider making a presentation proposal.  Here are the titles of the proposals which I’ve submitted:

  • Creating a Family Genealogy Workspace
  • Genealogical Uses for QR Codes
  • Genealogy Blogs – Impact and Influence on the Genealogy Community
  • Self-Publishing for Genealogists and Genealogical Societies
  • Social Media Workshop
  • Virtual Presentations Round Table
  • Wikis for Genealogists

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.
