Meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston
September 19 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Two lectures by Thomas MacEntee: “Google for Genealogists,” and “The Genealogy Do-Over™: A Year of Learning from Mistakes.”
Google for Genealogists
Much of the information and resources available through Google go unnoticed by the average researcher. This presentation will explain how Google components can be leveraged for better search results. Google allows you to access maps, books, journals, abstracts, patents, and much more — you may find just what is needed to make advances in your genealogy research.
The Genealogy Do-Over™: A Year of Learning from Mistakes
Frustrated with the way you originally researched your genealogy? Did you not care or not even know about citing sources? Thomas MacEntee shows you how to embark on a genealogy “do-over.” Follow him as he basically re-starts his genealogy research from scratch but includes sound research practices and methodologies as well as new templates, tools, and the latest technology to create a better body of family history research.
Thomas MacEntee, a professional genealogist, is a well-known blogger, educator, author, and social media connector. He created GeneaBloggers, a popular online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers. Considered an expert on many aspects of genealogy research, he is a frequent and popular speaker on a vast variety of genealogy topics.
