Why I Do Genealogy and Why I'm Here

Article by tmacentee

Just a quick note to introduce myself to the folks at Family Tree Circle. My name is Thomas MacEntee and I am a genealogy professional living in Chicago, Illinois.

Some of you may know me as the creator of GeneaBloggers (http://www.geneabloggers.com) which is a community of over 2,800 genealogy bloggers. I've also delivered quite a few genealogy related webinars over at Legacy Family Tree (http://www.legacyfamilytree.com).

This isn't a sales pitch for me or for my many projects. I just wanted to say thanks to Scott for creating Family Tree Circles as a place where genealogy folk can share their information and connection with each other in hopes of solving family history research problems.

To learn more about my own research - mostly in the Hudson Valley and Northern New York areas, visit my genealogy blog Destination: Austin Family at http://destinationaustinfamily.blogspot.com.

Thank you Thomas for signing up and giving FamilyTreeCircles a try.

Thomas' Geneabloggers community, and much of what he teaches in webinars, embraces the message, mantra even, that I feel so strongly about, which is to just write online about your family history.

Writing about your genealogy gets information out of your head, paper notebooks, and desktop computers onto the Internet where other family researchers can find it. Others may find that missing link, or someday, someone may have the solution to your own biggest brick wall.

Besides all that, writing is just good for the brain, whether that's here on FamilyTreeCircles or elsewhere. The goal of FamilyTreeCircles is to provide you with an easy place to do that that comes with an active community.

I encourage you to check out Thomas' projects.
