Last evening, February 22, 2021, CMGS sponsored a virtual event entitled “Genealogy Escape  Room™” using materials (video recording, handouts, and other materials) created by Thomas MacEntee. During the process of setting up this event, unfortunately, proper permission was not secured from Thomas or from Legacy Family Tree Webinars which hosted the video recording. In addition, a flyer was created and circulated which gave the appearance that the event was hosted by Thomas, which was not the case. We sincerely apologize to both Thomas MacEntee and Geoff Rasmussen of the Legacy Family Tree Webinars for our error.

We at CMGS deeply regret the error and want to make it clear that when using materials created by genealogy speakers, permission MUST be secured in advance. Thomas has graciously given us permission to use his handout, after the fact, and we thank him for continuing to be invested in the success of genealogical societies.
