Unclaimed Persons Solves 100th Case

unclaimedpersons.org

Congratulations to Unclaimed Persons and all of its hard-working volunteers on solving their 100th case!

In case you are unfamiliar with Unclaimed Persons, this volunteer organization is comprised of genealogists, family historians and cyber-sleuths who use their research skills to help coroners and medical examiners located next of kin for unclaimed persons.

I highly recommend that if you have a some time or are looking for a volunteer project that you can do from the comfort of your own home, consider becoming a member.  Not only will you be assisting overburdened state and local agencies but you’ll also hone and sharpen your research skills.

Congratulations to everyone at Unclaimed Persons!

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.
