FREE Webinar – Social Networking: New Horizons for Genealogists

I am happy to announce that the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) has selected me to deliver their inaugural webinar in their new Jamboree Extension Series! On Satuday, March 5, 2011 at 12pm Central (10am Pacific, 11am Mountain and 1pm Eastern time zones), I will be presenting Social Networking: New Horizons for Genealogists.

As the virtual presentation concept continues to be embraced by the genealogy community, this is the perfect way for you to attend a FREE genealogy education event online and from the comfort of your home.  You don’t need to be a member of SCGS to attend (however only SCGS members will have access to the recorded version of this webinar) and register now since there are only 1,000 “seats” available!

What will you learn in this webinar on social networking? Well, I’ll bring you up-to-date on the latest developments in the social media world of Facebook, Twitter, Genealogywise and more. We’ll also spend quite a bit of time showing how genealogists are using these free resources for queries, lookups and more.

I hope you’ll join me and SCGS on Saturday, March 5th!

Upcoming Appearance: Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy 2013

Utah Genealogical Association

I’m happy to announce that I’ve been selected as a course coordinator and presenter for the 2013 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG).

I know this sounds like a long way away time-wise (two years? I feel like an opera singer who’s booked out years in advance) but it will be here before I know it.  I will be responsible for coordinating a track of courses entitled A Genealogists’ Guide to the Internet Galaxy.

This will be my first time working with the good folks at SLIG but they are no strangers to me. I am, in fact, a far-flung member of the Utah Genealogical Association and a big supporter of all their programs especially the genealogy education programs.

My goal is to actually attend SLIG in January 2012 so I get a better feel for their offerings and what is involved in coordinating a course track. Stay tuned for more information!

This is a new event for me and is coordinated by the historian at the Homestead National Monument in Nebraska – a National Park Service site. The symposium will be held at the Southeast Community College of Nebraska in Beatrice.
