FREE WEBINAR Privacy, DNA, and Genealogy: Handling the Double-Edged Sword presented by Thomas MacEntee via Utah Genealogical Association, Tuesday, April 23rd, 8:00 pm Eastern / 7:00 pm Central / 6:00 pm Mountain / 5:00 pm Pacific.
“Especially as personal DNA testing increases in popularity, and with increased media attention to cold cases solved via DNA and the use of genealogy databases, today’s genealogist needs to stay on top of the latest information concerning privacy. We’ll review the current status of privacy practices by the big genealogy and DNA vendors, current laws and regulations, and what we might expect to see related to privacy in the future.
Has your concern for privacy prevented you or a family member for taking a DNA test? What about sharing your genealogy research data online with practical strangers (even though you might be related)? We’ll take inventory of the current privacy and genealogy practices, look to future practices, and offer practical advice for hobbyists as well as professionals.”

Presenter: Thomas MacEntee
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. 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 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.
