Navigating the Seven C’s of Genealogy
by Thomas MacEntee

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.

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.

The Scots-Irish Migration Into North America

Many Americans can trace their ancestry back to the British Isles. Some have even heard that their background was “Scotch-Irish”. We will focus on who these people were and where they came from in the British Isles.

Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG®, has become a favorite speaker at conferences and webinars. Her experience runs deep into the hills of Appalachia. She serves as a Family History Center director, and is an instructor at Ancestry Academy and Family Tree University.
