Thomas MacEntee Featured in Article at nextavenue and Forbes

I’ve been featured in an article entitled Career Shift: Turn Your Hobby Into a New Job at nextavenue which is a collaborative media platform by media partners PBS, American Public Television, National Educational Telecommunications Association, and Huffington Post.

I was interview a few weeks ago by Nancy Collamer, a career coach, speaker and author of Second-Act Careers: 50+ Ways to Profit From Your Passions During Semi-Retirement. You can learn more about Nancy at her website is MyLifestyleCareer.com.

The opportunity to share my “second life” career path is an honor and in the article you’ll learn how after my last firm went bankrupt, I was able to transform my hobby of genealogy into a profession. In addition, from what the author has told me, this article will be carried on Forbes.com early next week.

Stay tuned!

New Article: The (Not So) Private Lives of Our Ancestors

The most recent article discusses the meaning of privacy for our ancestors and how you can actually be a genealogy “snoop” to find out the details of their lives.

Visit the  Articles page here at High-Definition Genealogy for my other recent and past articles on genealogy.

Disclaimer: this was an assignment for Archives.com in which I was paid to produce a an article on the subject of genealogy webinars.  In addition to payment, I also received a complimentary membership to Archives.com.  See the Disclosure Statements page for a list of all material connections I have with genealogy vendors.
