January 2014 Webinar – 7 Habits of Highly Frugal Genealogists







Want to learn the best ways to research on a budget?  Then join us on January 14, where Thomas MacEntee will share his secrets in his presentation 7 Habits of Highly Frugal Genealogists.

DateTuesday, January 14, 2014, 8:00 pm Central

Description: Learn how savvy genealogists are find success with 7 basic habits of frugality. You’ll not only find a list of key resources but more importantly you’ll learn how to embrace the “mind set” of finding the best ways to save money while researching your ancestors.

Presenter: Thomas MacEntee


Thomas MacEntee is a genealogy professional specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogy research and as a way to connect with others in the family history community. When he’s not busy writing blog posts, organizing the 3,000+ members of GeneaBloggers.com, teaching online genealogy webinars and more, Thomas MacEntee is busy in his role as “genealogy ninja.” Stealth is not easy, but he manages to get the inside track on emerging technologies and vendors as they relate to the genealogy industry. After being laid off from a 25-year career in the tech industry in 2008, Thomas has been able to “repurpose” his skill set for the genealogy community and loves to see other genealogists succeed, whether it is with their own research or building their own careers in the field.
