Ten People All Genealogists Should Follow On Twitter

Twitip has a great idea: put together a list of the top ten people to follow on Twitter.  So here is my recommendation called Ten People All Genealogists Should Follow On Twitter

1.  @megansmolenyak Megan Smolenyak – of Roots Television and Ancestry fame.  Megan has spot on info about the genealogy world!

2. @footnotemaven footnoteMaven – not only for info on how to correctly cite your sources, but for the wonderful world of old photos – especially girls with glasses

3.  @dickeastman Dick Eastman – he of Dick Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter with lots of great news about genealogy

4.  @rjseaver Randy Seaver – a geneablogger extraordinaire! You must read his latest blog posts on DNA genealogy

5. @LorineMS Lorine Schulz – she runs the Olive Tree Genealogy sites and is a wealth of information – she has helped me tremendously with my Dutch ancestry

6.  @marktucker Mark Tucker – software architect by day and a family historian by night and weekend 

7. @illyadaddezio Illya D’Addezio - non-stop genealogist, founder of Genealogy Today and Live Roots

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.
