Sat., August 10: “10 Must Haves for Genealogy and Family History Success” with Thomas MacEntee (virtual)

August 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Aug. 10 — 10 Must Haves for Genealogy and Family History Success (virtual): Whether you’re just “dabbling” in genealogy or you’ve become obsessed with “the hunt,” Thomas MacEntee will review basic skills that family historians of all levels have in common.

“So, what if I told you that a Baby Boomer guy with a love of punk rock music but also Renaissance Art, somehow “fell” into the technology industry almost 40 years ago, and then left a lucrative career in information technology to pursue his love of family history and genealogy? And that his passion for tracing his roots began over 45 years ago when he was watching the mini-series Roots on ABC Television at his great-grandparents’ house in February 1977? While some might think these two elementstechnology and historical research– are opposites. The truth is, “tech people” like Thomas are needed to guide today’s genealogists through the maze of options so they can deploy the best apps and devices as they break down those research brick walls.”

We will gather at SSGHS in Hazel Crest to watch this presentation, which Thomas MacEntee will present remotely. If you’re watching from home, you must register at https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwvc-2rqT4pHtM6-Otja4-LJkmK_Kv4zPcP after which you will be emailed the link to join the program.
