Guest Post at Vintage Aerial – Technology and Genealogy

I had the honor of providing a guest post about genealogy and technology over at the Vintage Aerial blog today. Entitled Technology and Genealogy: What’s Your Altimeter Reading? it covers the concept of whether or not we as genealogists are willing to take a closer look at technology and what this means for the genealogy community.

Take a look and, as always, your feedback is appreciated. Leave a comment at the Vintage Aerial blog and perhaps pick up the conversation back at your own blog and share with your readers.

I’m also curious to know what kind of “tech pilot” you are – someone who is willing to swoop in for a close-up? Someone who does a quick fly-over? Or someone who follows others who cover the genealogy tech scene?

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.
