Blog type: individual family history, Italian genealogy

Welcome to my blog for and about our Family or anyone who loves Itri and Campodimele, Italy! Entra, siedi e goditi una bella tazza di cafe metre navighi! Come in and sit for awhile! Enjoy a cup of espresso and browse! Read a little history of Itri and of our family. Mostly this blog will concern ourselves about family – and our passions, joys, tears, sadness – as we journey back in time to research our family roots and as we share the joys of our expanding family.

Blog type: individual family history, surnames, UK genealogy

I am a member of the Guild of One Name Studies since 1988 and I have been a member on and off for the last 18 years. I have been researching the name Gronow / Gronnow / Goronwy for the past 24 years, during which time I have built up a considerable database and record of Gronow families across the world, from throughout England & Wales to the outer reaches of Canada and Australia.

museum family history

Museum of Family History

Blog type: Jewish genealogy, libraries and archives

Welcome to the blog for the Museum of Jewish History, a virtual (Internet-only) museum dedicated to preserving the memory of not only Jewish families, but the collective modern history and culture of the Jewish people.

I am currently at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies conference in Philadelphia, PA. I gave a talk about my museum entitled “A Day at the Museum: Navigating the Museum of Family History.” Considering the early hour of the talk (8:15 a.m.), it was well attended and went well.

At my talk I introduced new and upcoming exhibitions as well as new interactive floor plans/maps. You can access these maps via the front page of the Museum’s site atwww.museumoffamilyhistory.com . Just look for the links in the right-hand column.

This the second way to navigate the Museum. You might also like to find your way around the museum by using the Site Map page which serves as a table of contents for the site.

If any of you would like to contribute to the Museum, e.g. family photos, text, audio or video, please contact me atsteve@museumoffamilyhistory.com. Stay tuned for mention of upcoming online exhibitions.

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.
