About This Show
Welcome to Research at the National Archives and Beyond! This show will provide individuals interested in genealogy and history an opportunity to listen, learn and take action.
You can join me every Thursday at 9 pm Eastern, 8 pm Central, 7pm Mountain and 6 pm Pacific where I will have a wonderful line up of experts who will share resources, stories and answer your burning genealogy questions. All of my guests share a deep passion and knowledge of genealogy and history.
My goal is to reach individuals who are thinking about tracing their family roots; beginners who have already started and others who believe that continuous learning is the key to finding answers.
"Remember, your ancestors left footprints".

The Genealogy Do-Over for 2018 with Thomas MacEntee
6 days ago
The Genealogy Do-Over (https://genealogydo-over.com) is an online educational initiative to improve genealogical and family history research skills. The Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/genealogydoover/) has over 15,000 members working through the monthly topics provided by genealogy author and educator Thomas MacEntee.
The goal of The Genealogy Do-Over is not to wallow in regrets over the mistakes we've made with our genealogy in the past. Do-Over members are willing to set aside years of research and start over - from scratch!
And finally, a NEW FEATURE is added for 2018 - the DNA Do-Over! This group targets genealogists and family historians who have taken DNA tests but really haven't put their DNA data to work! Patterned after The Genealogy Do-Over, we cover one topic each month and improve our genetic genealogy education in a supportive atmosphere.
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 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.
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.
