Independence Day and Growing Up in Liberty

Geni has come up with a fun infographic about US patriotic place names, surnames and more just in time for Independence Day.

I have a personal connection to this one, not so much in the surname department, but the patriotic place name: I grew up in a small town in upstate New York called Liberty.  Anyone who traveled from New York City up to Binghamton and beyond would know it easily – Exit 100 on the “Quickway” which is what the locals called Route 17.

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.
