JFK Assassination: My Family’s Memories

JFK Assassination: My Family's Memories

Friday, 22 November 2013, is the 50th Anniversary of the JFK Assassination. Some of us, like me, were either too young to remember that day or were not yet born. However, many of us remember where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news.

Share Your Memories of the JFK Assassination

Family historians are asked to take time and write down their own memories of that day on 22 November 1963 or the stories they heard years later from family members.

We’ve created a special board over at Pinterest where we’ll pin the posts from members of GeneaBloggers. IMPORTANT: Your blog post must have an image included in order to be pinned. And please include “JFK” or “JFK Assassination” in your blog post title, if possible.

Collective memory projects can help us understand how events in history impacted our families. We hope you’ll contribute your own memories to this great project.

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.
