Work With Me

Thomas MacEntee - Work With Me

Here is a list of skills and services I currently offer:

  • Speaking and Lecturing: Each year I travel all over the world presenting on over 50 different genealogy-related topics. While my focus is mainly technology, I cover a variety of areas and I’d love to speak at your organization’s event! Click here for a list of currently available lecture topics.
  • Education: Sometimes known as “The King of Genealogy Webinars,” I can often be found presenting online education in a variety of formats. Webinars are a cost-effective and convenient way for your organization to share my knowledge with your members.
  • Self-Publishing: As the author of 15 genealogy books and editor of over 100 books and guides, I can help walk you through the self-publishing process. In addition, I offer editing and production services without any upfront fees; I’m willing to take a small royalty and then help promote your book so we both succeed!
  • Marketing: I’ve been successful in combining social media platforms and practices with good old fashioned marketing skills to promote my business. Now let me use these abilities to promote you, your business or your organization within the genealogy community.
  • Networking: “Telephone, telegraph, tell Thomas” is a phrase some people use to describe my ability to connect the right people together in the genealogy industry. You may just need contact info or you may want some background on a genealogy vendor and their services. Contact me and I’ll help get you connected.
  • Market Analysis: I am one of the few people in the genealogy industry who tracks new products and services, user and subscriber data, and more. In addition, I track the “habits” of genealogists including purchasing decisions, what attracts and repels them, and more. If you have a product that you feel will do well with family historians, I can help you understand the landscape of the genealogy market.
  • Coaching and Mentoring: I wish I had time and money to provide free coaching to those who want to start their own genealogy business, and I would if I could! I am available to give you an inside look at my success, what I wouldn’t do again, and offer inspiration to carve out your niche in the family history industry.
  • Entrepreneurship: I’m always open to new opportunities. I can usually invest time, skill and build sweat equity rather than outright funding. You never know what might happen so contact me!

  1. Thanks Barbara for your kind words and comments – all I can say is “sit tight” – I am developing a new site called Smarter Genealogy which will take each of the individual tasks at The Genealogy Do-Over and break them down into simple lessons covered in a Cheat Sheet as well as a Video.

    Thomas, I get so much out of your presentations. I am 77 years old and have worked on my French-Canadian and German lines since 1958. What I knew then about family tree was a nice basic collection from a researcher in Canada that my aunt had asked to trace our lineage.
    So, basically with no idea of what or how to do research properly, I took off on the run. We had lots of great aunts living and I interviewed some of them, 1 German grandma and lots of other aunts, uncles, cousins.
    Since my work has lots of holes, I need to follow your do over. I have the download and have begun the inventory. The videos are a bit overwhelming on youtube. I do not know where to start watching. Were there any do over videos that go side by side with the do over book?

  3. Hello John

    Thanks for the request – can you email me at and we can discuss? I don’t mind others using some of my materials from presentations as long as credit is given.


  4. Thomas, I attended the Spring Springfield, Mass Seminar where you presented several very interesting subjects. I’d like to cobble together some of your presentations along with others in a presentation to my neighborhood Genealogy group. I will be sure to give you appropriate credit for your work. May I have your permission to do this? Thank You

  5. YES – you have my permission – please make sure you properly attribute my content and good luck with your presentation!

    Thomas, I am giving a 30 min presentation on “what happens to your family history when you are dead?” – I’ll come up with a new title. Would like to use some of your “Future Proofing” and, if possible, provide a link to your PDF book. This presentation is for Root Cellar aka Sacramento Genealogy Society. Would appreciate your response and thoughts.
    Thank You, Linda Johnson
