Remember Me: Lifestreaming and the Modern Genealogist


The old phrase “The cobbler’s children always have the worse shoes,” rings true for genealogists when it comes to documenting our own lives. With a constant emphasis on preserving the memories of our ancestors, are we “walking the walk” when it comes to our own lives? There has never been a better time for genealogists and family historians to embrace a new storytelling format: lifestreaming. From online diary apps to narrative “wearable” cameras, the technology now available to capture one’s life is amazing. With new ways to tell our own stories, do you have a plan to leave your own legacy?

Presenter: Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional based in the United States who is also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas has over 42 years of experience researching family history.


Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. Currently Thomas shares many of his articles and videos for free at the popular Genealogy Bargains website!


Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
