GeneaBloggers Radio – Live from RootsTech Friday Night, February 11, 2011

Listen to internet radio with Geneabloggers on Blog Talk Radio


It’s back! The first airing of GeneaBloggers Radio last Friday evening was such a success that I’ve convinced RootsTech to allow me to broadcast live from the Family History Library on Friday, February 11, 2011 from 9:00 – 11:00 pm CST. Please note the time change! These new hours will allow the West Coast viewers to watch their broadcast of WDYTYA and then tune in to our show!

Episode 2, Friday, February 11, 2011

  • Who Do You Think You Are?: Join us as we present a two hour discussion of the second episode of Who Do You Think You Are? Season 2 on NBC. This week’s episode features Tim McGraw as he searches for his ancestors. We’ll be discussing the episode, the show format, what the WDYTYA series means for genealogists and the genealogy industry.
  • Interview with Kathleen Brandt of a3Genealogy: Kathleen is one of the professional genealogists who assisted Tim McGraw with his WDYTYA research and she appears on the show! We’ll have Kathleen call in for an interview on what it was like to work with the WDYTYA show and with Tim McGraw!
  • RootsTech: We’ll also give a recap of RootsTech: A New Family History and Technology Conference. The discussion will include all the sessions, events and vendors. Over 40 genealogy bloggers will be in attendance and hopefully we’ll get a few interviews with them as well.
  • Genealogy News: And finally, we’ll be highlighting some upcoming events and discussing what’s going on in the world of genealogy. Stay tuned!

  5. If you want to dial in and share your thoughts and comments, the dial-in number is (213) 286-6709.
  6. There will also be a chat room on that same page where you can type and interact with other listeners. I often take cues and suggestions from the chat room so don’t be shy!

And finally, new technology like this is not without its glitches.  Please keep in mind that I’ll be broadcasting live with many folks at a WDYTYA viewing party at the Family History Library.  Hopefully everything will go smoothly!

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.
