Bone Collector
http://www.wemightbekin.net/bonecollector

“BoneCollector…Sounds chilling but it’s all innocent really. I’m crazy about genealogy and spend an enormous amount of time rooting around in the days of yore looking for clues to missing links in my family tree. I even have a website dedicated to my search.

Come check it out www.wemightbekin.net

As for the rest of the goods on me, you’ll just have to read my thoughts and see what you come up with!”

Irish Genealogical

“Are you ready to begin your own Irish genealogical quest? You’re not alone. Today, over 34 million people in the United States alone have Irish ancestry. It’s one of the most commonly searched nationalities in American genealogy! Irish roots are found in every part of American life, including the White House. Did you know one-third of our American presidents have had Irish ancestors? If you’ve got Irish ancestry in you, you’re in good company!”

The Scottish Genealogy Blog

“This is the first posting of the new Scottish Genealogy Blog. I am hoping that this will be a great tool and resource for those who are interested in researching their Scottish ancestors. I am a professional genealogist who specializes in Scottish genealogy. I wanted to create this blog as a tool to help others who are interested in researching their family history, as well as a place where folks can get information and possibly ask questions regarding Scottish genealogy. I also have an great interest in computer-related genealogy too. The computer has really helped many people get more involved in researching their family history with all the sources available online now. Genealogy blogging is quite new at the moment, but I feel that it will become a great resource for the future.

I am looking forward to adding more information as the days go by. I will try to post as often as I can or as time permits. If anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to let me know. Until next time.”

Talking Roots

“These are the stories and events of the lives of my ancestors many of which might pass out of history if not retold and preserved here. Also, here are my observances and stories of my own life the likes of which I wish I could find about my now long-departed great-grandparents and other relatives.”

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.
