“I enjoy working with many organizations in the genealogy field, including genealogy societies, to help family historians of all skill levels get the most out of the various technologies available online.” Starting in 2008 MacEntee transitioned his corporate technical training skills to serve the genealogy community and continues to enjoy seeing the “light bulb go on” when someone “gets technology” in a friendly, easy-to-learn environment.

Lectures and webinars are typically 60 minutes in length and include a quality PDF handout filled with educational content and hyperlinks.

About Thomas MacEntee

When he’s not busy writing blog posts, organizing the 2800+ members of GeneaBloggers.com, teaching online genealogy webinars and more, Thomas MacEntee is busy in his role as “genealogy ninja.” Stealth is not easy, but he manages to get the inside track on emerging technologies and vendors as they relate to the genealogy industry. After being laid off from a 25-year career in the tech industry in 2008, Thomas has been able to “repurpose” his skill set for the genealogy community and loves to see other genealogists succeed, whether it is with their own research or building their own careers in the field.
