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!

Upcoming Appearance: Land Records and Genealogy Symposium

I’ve just been notified that I’ve been chosen to speak at the upcoming Land Records and Genealogy Symposium in Beatrice, Nebraska on July 15 and 16, 2011.

I’ll be presenting Social Networking: New Horizons for Genealogists as well as my new Google for Genealogists lecture.

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.

Click here to register and given last week’s Google for Genealogists webinar – we maxed out at 1,000 participants – I advise you to register early and to connect to the webinar on April 6th early so you aren’t shut out!

This educational event is free and you will be able to participate from the comfort of your home or office via your computer! Also remember to sign up for future webinars at Legacy Family Tree while you are there.

Finally, if you can’t attend – don’t worry.  A recording of Building a Research Toolbox will be available on the Legacy Family Tree website until May 6th and you’ll also be able to purchase the recording and the syllabus materials.
