May I Introduce To You…Thomas MacEntee

I think you will agree that I would be remiss if I did not profile this geneablogger for the “May I Introduce to You…” article.

He calls himself “The Pearl Mesta of geneabloggers and Facebook. A 40-something genealogy and technology enthusiast looking to combine both. ”

May I introduce to you…

Thomas has been blogging about his family history since December 28, 2006. He is the owner of (at least) eight blogs and one wiki. His main family history blog is Destination: Austin Family. Here you will find all about Thomas and his family. There are two posts in particular I invite you to read:
Kenny’s Choice: A Veteran’s Day Tribute and Alzheimer’s Disease – A Duty and A Toll.
These articles show the true heart of Thomas.

But not everything about Thomas is so serious. Take a look at It’s Just A Jump To The Left… He is also known to participate in just about every meme that goes around the geneabloggersphere.

GeneaBloggers is because of the contributing hard work of Thomas. He is involved with promoting us everywhere – Facebook, Twitter, etc. He regularly posts helpful tips and techniques on Facebook Bootcamp for Geneabloggers.

And if that were not enough, Thomas is related to a whole bunch of us GeneaBloggers – Randy Seaver, Midge Frazel, Becky Wiseman, Lorine McGinnis Schulze, and me, plus a few more, I’m sure I have missed. Who knows? He might be related to you.

Ever helpful, full of technological genealogy knowledge, plus a wicked sense of humour, I’m sure you will agree that the geneabloggersphere just would not be the same without Thomas MacEntee.

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.
