Remembering Dr. King 2011

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today, Monday 17 January 2011, is the day we set aside as a nation to remember the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (his actual birthday was on 15 January).

Many genealogy bloggers are taking time to post at their own blogs as to the impact that the Civil Rights Movement had upon them and their ancestors.  Below are posts from the members of GeneaBloggers:

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.
