On Friday, June 5th and Saturday, June 6th, 2015, I will be speaking in Burbank, California at the Southern California Genealogical Society’s Jamboree. Although online registration has ended, you can still attend – click here for information. Hopefully I will see you there!
I’ll be delivering the following lectures:
- After You’re 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.
- Creating a Community Index Project — Many genealogy and historical societies and even individuals own important data records that they want to index and share with the genealogy community but don’t know where to start. Learn about the current options available to create your own community-based indexing project and how to enlist others to help with indexing.
- 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.
