It looks like there is a new genealogy player in the market but with very little info – YouWho started by Andre Brummer formerly with

From what little info is available – CrunchBase has listed them as a “stealth” company – it appears that they will be “providing an on-line searchable database in the field of genealogy and family history” according to their trademark filing (via TechCrunch). TechCrunch also points out that YouWho has just raised $5 million in venture capital funding.

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.
