Upcoming Webinar – Google for Genealogists

legacy family tree

I am pleased to announce my partnership with Legacy Family Tree in delivering quality webinars to the genealogy community!

On Wednesday, January 5, 2011 at 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EST (7:00 pm GMT), I will present Google for Genealogists:

Most genealogists are only using 10% or less of the resources behind Google when it comes to genealogy research. Learn from professional genealogist, Thomas MacEntee, about the other 90% and how these Google components can be leveraged for better search results. Google is more than just a search engine – it is a wealth of information much of which goes unnoticed by the average genealogist. Besides search, Google allows you to access maps, books, journals, abstracts, patents and much more. These components may be what is needed to make advances in your genealogy research.

Article – Baby Boomers Get Connected With Facebook

Baby Boomers Get Connected With Facebook

There is an article in today’s issue of the Itasca Press (on the mysuburbanlife.com website) discussing how the over-50 crowd is migrating to Facebook and becoming one of the fastest growing demographics for this social media site.

My recent appearance on July 14, 2010 at the Bloomingdale Public Library (where I presented Social Networking: New Horizons for Genealogists) is mentioned, complete with photos of me and participants in the presentation.
