A New Book on Genealogy Speaking

Approaching The Lectern - How to Become a Genealogy Speaker

I am happy to announce that I’ve finally been able to publish my book on genealogy speaking, entitled  Approaching the Lectern: How to Become a Genealogy Speaker.

Approaching is a 38-page handbook for genealogists and family historians (the hobbyists as well as the professionals) who want to learn how to effectively speak at genealogy conferences, genealogical society meetings and other venues.

This publication can be downloaded directly into PDF format or ordered in print form. An epub version for the Kindle will be announced later this week.

Here are some sample pages from the book which is based on my experiences as a public speaker in the genealogy industry. Hopefully you’ll learn some of the tricks I use to answer a call for papers, to keep my bio and resume up to date and more. (Click the images to embiggen)
