20 October 2015 ~ Comments Off on Upcoming Appearance: Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall 2015 Conference

Upcoming Appearance: Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall 2015 Conference

Genealogy author/educator Thomas MacEntee will be a speaker at the Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall 2015 Conference October 23-24, 2015 in Oak Lawn.

On Friday and Saturday,  October 23rd and 24th, 2015, I will be speaking in Oak Lawn, Illinois at the Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall 2015 Seminar. Click here for information and hopefully I will see you there!

I’ll be delivering the following lectures:

  • Citing Sources and Evaluating Evidence: More and more genealogists are evolving from “name collectors” to “serious researchers.” Most realize the need to cite sources and evaluate evidence before data is added to a family tree. Here are ways to not only make the process easier, but to also get most out of your research data.
  • The Genealogy Do-Over™: A Year of Learning from Mistakes: It isn’t often that we get a “do-over” when it comes to stuff that matters in life. When you first got started researching your family history, did you do some things that now are just plain “embarrassing” such as name collecting, not citing sources and more? Well now there’s hope since genealogists from beginner to advanced are employing new research methodologies and documentation practices. Follow genealogist Thomas MacEntee as he basically starts his genealogy research from scratch but includes sound research practices and methodologies as well as new templates, tools and the latest technology to create a better body of family history research.
  • After You’ve Gone – Future Proofing Your Genealogy Research: Have you ever considered what will happen to your years of genealogy research once you’re gone? Learn how to ensure that your hard work carries on. Through a combination of planning, common sense, and new technologies, we’ll review how to create an action plan for preserving your genealogy research.
