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. I’m afraid the graphic is full of errors. There is only one Prince of Wales. Prince William is “Prince William of Wales” and Prince Harry is “Prince Henry of Wales”. There is no such title as “Princess of York”. The daughters of the Duke of York are “Princess Beatrice of York” and “Princess Eugenie of York”. Prince Philip is the Duke of Edinburgh and his name is spelled with only one “l”.

    For the official family tree, giving the correct styles and titles, see:
