Building a Genealogy Research Toolbox @ ONLINE WEBINAR | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

Are overwhelmed with the number of online resources for genealogical research? Are you constantly working with unorganized bookmarks or favorites? Printing out lists of websites you use most? Learn how to build a research toolbox that is organized, easy-to-use, and can be accessed from almost anywhere.

Participants will learn not only some of the most important online resources for genealogical research, but also how to organize these resources into an easy-to-access and portable virtual toolbox.

Speaker Thomas MacEntee is an author, educator, student, advocate, marketer, storyteller, entrepreneur, and that “genealogy guy” who helps you accomplish your family history goals.

His passion for tracing his roots began over 45 years ago when he was watching the mini-series Roots on ABC Television at his great-grandparents’ house in February 1977. Before becoming a genealogy professional, Thomas worked in information technology

Thomas has taught over 1,000 in-person and virtual genealogy lectures since 2010, served on the boards of many genealogical societies, organized a group of over 1,000 genealogy bloggers, and helped countless researchers save money on genealogy products and services. His current mission is to change the way genealogists acquire new research skills, motivating researchers to take a chance on new technologies, and improving how family stories and heirlooms are preserved and passed on to the next generations.

Grandpa’s Secret
Have you had difficulty figuring out where an ancestor came from between 1860 and 1940? Family lore was they came from the UK, but you can’t find any documents? This happened with Beth Adam’s husband’s grandfather. What was found was a family secret—he had been a British Home Child.

Speaker Beth Adams is a member of the Toronto Branch Education Committee (who is looking for new volunteers!) and presents frequently. She lives in Pembroke, Ontario and volunteers at her local museum and genealogy group. Scouting remains an important part of her life, as is spending time with family and friends at her family cottage.
