About Thomas MacEntee
When he’s not busy writing blog posts, organizing the 2,800+ members of Geneabloggers, 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 twenty-five-year career in the tech industry in 2008, Thomas has been able to “repurpose” his skill set for the genealogy community and he loves to see other genealogists succeed, whether it is with their own research or building their own careers in the field.
