Description Technical Specs
With all the news about privacy, identity theft and the role of access to vital records, have you ever considered that today most of us (at least here in the United States) have more privacy than our ancestors? As a result of living in a digital age ruled by the Internet and social media, is there really less privacy than in prior years? In fact, the reverse is true. Learn what type of information about your ancestors was public and how to find it!

This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on October 3, 2012. 1 hour 25 minutes. Plus 3 pages of handouts.

Viewers' Comments:
  • A lot great sites to check out and food for thought.
  • A very thought-provoking, and useful webinar.
  • Always great information from Thomas! Legacy does a fantastic job of setting up fantastic webinars!!!
  • Amazing presentation!!! Can't believe the resources...and Thomas is always so knowledgeable and organized. I'm still laughing because my small town Iowa newspaper STILL prints the hospital admissions/discharges every week, and privacy is a foreign word.
  • Enjoyed Thomas MacEntee, as always. Picked up several helpful tips and some great reminders for my research efforts! Thanks, Legacy!
  • Fasinating.... truly enjoyed the historical perspective that Thomas provided.
  • Great webinar with great information and new must have links to add to my toolbox. Thomas continues to be an excellent presenter!
  • Growing up in a small town made it so easy to relate to this Webinar. But at the same time.....reminds me of where I should go next. Thank you so much for a very informative Webinar.
  • I appreciated all of the new sources that I can incorporate into my searching strategies. I also have an added purpose to all of this work I am doing. When he mentioned how difficult it may be future genealogists to access some records, that gives new purpose to the research that I can leave to my families future genealogists.
  • I very much enjoyed the discussion on the evolution of privacy and the comment that we need to "flesh out" our own lives in some way so our decendents can learn about us. Many thanks for your thoughtful presentation.
  • Privacy has been a stumbling block , but with this webinar I have new avenues to follow Thanks.
  • Thanks for the genealogy resources. And for changing my view on the issue of privacy. I thought our privacy issues had changed with all the availability of data, not just on the internet, but other public records. In truth, with the advent of Facebook and Twitter, we are putting our OWN lives on record every day! And public records have always been public -- that hasn't changed. I'm less worried about my own privacy now and have more resources to find my ancestors' public lives. Thanks!
  • This webinar was packed with good information. Thomas's energy and Goeff's interactions made the webinar so interesting that it is hard to believe that it is already over! The time flew by! Thank you!
  • Thomas MacEntee is always great to listen to. This particular webinar also provided the listeners with historical information and gave more insight into how "things were". Most times, people are just concerned with the present and forget how the past affected the future (now). Thank you Mr. MacEntee for a super presentation.
  • Your seminar really did make me think. I have found numerous articles about the comings and goings of ancestors but never looked at it this way. Thank you for shedding light on the subject.
  • Your webinars always contain great information. Our society is buying them for the members to listen to. Great resources all of them!
