Thomas MacEntee presents:
Navigating the Seven C's of Genealogy

Join Us! 

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4724386347586785793

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION

Do genealogy “resolutions” really work? How about setting genealogy “goals” or “themes” instead? I’ve developed a list of seven “themes” to guide me this year and hopefully I can institute these as general “rules to do genealogy by” over the next few years. I think the themes cover most areas of concern for every family historian, whether you’ve been at this for some time or you are just starting. 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Thomas MacEntee is a genealogy professional based in the United States, 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.

HANDOUT
A handout will be available shortly before the presentation. A link will be included in a reminder that will be sent the day before the session.
