search for agnes

Search For Agnes
http://search4agnes.blogspot.com
Blog type: Individual family history

My search for Agnes began in October, 2009. Agnes is my maternal grandmother who lived a horrendous life yet managed to live to be 89 years old. I knew bits and pieces of her life, but not many specific details. My sister and I went to visit my aunt in an assisted living facility on that day in October and that was the beginning of my addiction. Aunt Mary was 90 years old at the time of the visit and readily shared her memories with us. We hung onto every word and I even thought of pulling an envelope out of my purse to take notes. That was a smart move as I would have forgotten some of the things our aunt shared with us that day.

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.
