Greater Omaha Genealogical Society Spring Conference featuring
Thomas MacEntee, Lecturer and Genealogy Professional

Getting Organized & Getting the Most For Your $$$**

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. Currently Thomas shares many of his articles and videos for free at Abundant Genealogy and also runs the popular Genealogy Bargains and DNA Bargains websites! Thomas describes himself as a life- long 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.

The conference will be held: ONLINE via GoToWebinar

Sessions will be recorded and available for viewing after the conference for paid registrants!
