Wisconsin State Genealogical Society Gene-A-Rama April 27-28, 2012

I’m happy to announce that I will be featured as the main speaker for the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society‘s Gene-A-Rama event, April 27-28, 2012 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

During the FGS 2011 conference, I had the chance to chat with Mary Rieder, WSGS president and she had no problem convincing me to make the trip north for this great event.

I will be presenting some of my more popular lectures including Facebook for GenealogistsManaging Your Genealogy Data, and They’re Alive – Searching for Living Persons. And I will be developing a new lecture just for the folks at WSGS entitled Behind the Cheese Curtain: A Look at Wisconsin Genealogy Resources.

Finally, I will also provide a humorous look at genealogy and technology – Genealogy
Party Line: Hung Up on Technology – during the Friday evening banquet.

As you can see above, I love working with genealogy societies and I can even customize an in-person talk or webinar (from my home in Chicago) just for your society!

Come join me and many other genealogists in Green Bay next April! Click here for more information.
