I’ve been enchanted by genealogy research for more than half my life. My passion for the craft comes from my grandmother who researched our family history for 40 years before passing the torch (and, happily, her research) to me in 1995. Looking back, I want to acknowledge this wonderful lady’s role in igniting this life-long interest in me; looking forward I want to give something back to the field.

I want to create beautiful heirloom quality products that capture our care and efforts as genealogists. We work so hard at uncovering our family history; it’s a shame to hide our work on a hard drive or in a filing cabinet. Our efforts deserve special ways to honor and memorialize the ancestry we discover.

My hope for this site is that you’ll find products and information that will inspire you as you research your family’s past and that it’ll serve as a practical starting point for those of you just embarking on this fascinating and gratifying journey.

I live in Florida, by way of New York and Washington States. I love creating, crafting, collecting and, yes, even classifying and cataloguing. Thanks for visiting and let me know what you think!

This Genealogy Blog is an effort to record my many family history research challenges and successes, including the various ephemera that comes from my research.  If I’m lucky, the blog might also act as “cousin bait!”

Blog type: Individual family history

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I’ve been casually researching my genealogy for several months, and decided to start this site where I can organize my research, share my findings, and (hopefully) connect with others.

From what I’ve gathered, most of my family has roots in America going back to at least the early 19th century and, in some cases, the colonial era. Specifically, I have lots of ties to Ohio, with other branches in Tennessee, Iowa, and elsewhere. While this makes me jealous at times of others with more recent immigrant ancestors and their many cultural traditions, having a sense of personal connection to the different times and places in this county is very rewarding. I hope to learn more about my family tree not only to better know myself, but also history in general.

Surnames of interest: Albright, Anderson, Barnes, Bibler, Corfee, Cutter, Hartman, Irick, James, Keys, Medley, Moore, Parrish, Shaeffer, Shaw, and Stratton.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am here to help you get started, keep you motivated, and show you how to break through those brick walls. I love your comments, your insight, and your encouraging words.

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.
