I can hardly believe that in one month I’ll be presenting at my first National Genealogy Conference! I am very excited for this wonderful opportunity to see old and new friends from all around the world. I can’t decide if I’m more excited about speaking at this level or finally getting the chance to be in Salt Lake City and visit the Family History Library. Add in the fact that I’ll be spending an entire week with my In-Depth Genealogist business partners Shannon Combs-Bennett and Terri O’Connell. It’s going to be EPIC!
If you are going to the conference please consider attending one of the four sessions I will be presenting. They are:
Thu. 11:00 AM-12:00 PM: Jews that Came West (FGS)
Discovered a Jewish ancestor in your family? Not sure where to start? We will cover strategies for this challenging group and the many resources available.
Thu. 3:00-4:00 PM: Documenting Your Family Heirlooms (FGS)
As generations pass on their heirlooms, the challenge becomes knowing their origination and associated stories. Learn both techie/non-techie ways to document your family’s heirlooms.
Sat. 4:00-5:00 PM: We’re Here in America, Now What? (FGS)
Your immigrant ancestors came to America with high hopes and little money. Learn about organizations that guided them to a job, residence, and more.
Fri. 4:00-5:00 PM: Genealogy and GIS: Digging Deeper (RootsTech)
This session will cover Google Earth and many additional tools that can be used to delve deeper into your genealogical research. Through historical overlays of maps we can pinpoint residences and churches of our ancestors in an interactive way.
You can also find me at The In-Depth Genealogist’s booth #1533. I hope if you will be attending you will stop by and say, “Hi!”
