An American Genealogy

Blog type: Individual family history

I am a professional writer, working as a technical writer in Silicon Valley. In addition, I have taught writing at the University, Jr. College, and Adult Education level. My articles have been published in numerous journals. I have 2 books on amazon.com – “Silicon Valley: Fact and Fiction” and “Wild Rider and Other Paintings.” I am also an artist and an art instructor. My new art interest is Art Trading Cards. I hope it leads me to a new phase of artistic expression – in all media. My recent passion has been genealogy.

denises life in the past lane

Denise’s Life in the Past Lane
http://pastlane.blogspot.com
Blog type: Individual family history

As a way of sharing my genealogical journey with friends and family, I’ve created this blog. My plan is to post articles about what I’ve done and learned on my trip in the “past lane”: places visited, people met, information discovered.

I come from a blended family where not everyone is related in the same way. I hope that, regardless of how you are connected to me, you will find the posts interesting! Let me know what you think by commenting.

As we enter the holiday season, I plan several posts on our family holiday traditions. Watch for them in the next few weeks!

Genealogy for the Family Historian
http://www.searchingforgrandfathers.com/ah-ha-moments-blog.html
Blog type: Genealogy education, Individual family history

I started researching my family history in order to learn more about the grandfather I never knew. I have had many ‘ah-ha’s’ throughout my years of genealogical searching. Follow my blog as I share some insightful moments that can help further your ancestral search.

my genealogical quest

My Genealogical Quest
http://dmsbr549.blogspot.com
Blog type: Individual family history

Within the last year or so, I have become more interested in doing genealogy. The more I get into it, the more I want to do. I’m currently planning on taking the NGS home study course and plan to order the first CD next week. I was planning on starting after the new year, but frankly am getting anxious.

I have found reading the various bogs very helpful and it has encouraged me to try my hand at it. I’m not sure I’ll add much to the conversation but it may help me organize my thoughts and encourage me to keep going.

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.
