A Successful Virtual Presentation – Christian County Genealogical Society

presentation

Yesterday afternoon – Sunday, November 7, 2010 – I was part of a successful virtual presentation for the Christian County Genealogical Society in Taylorsville, IL during their regularly scheduled monthly meeting.

I had been invited several months ago by one of their members to give a customized presentation consisting of 21st Century Marketing for Genealogical Societies and Google Docs for Genealogists. We arranged for me to do the presentation virtually with me using my Webex account here in Chicago and the rest of the group seated at their meeting spot.

Thanks go out to Chuck Courtwright of CCGS who took care of all the technical aspects including: arranging for a laptop, projector and screen at the meeting and especially hooking up the speaker phone to the room speakers so the audience could hear me. I was even able to take questions from the audience and provide answers.

If you are interested in having me provide genealogy education programs as part of your society’s meeting, please contact me for more information.

Upcoming Appearance – APG PMC in Knoxville, TN

Association of Professional Genealogists

Just before the start of the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ Annual Conference, I will be one of the panelists of the Association of Professional Genealogists‘ Annual Meeting and Roundtable on Tuesday, August 17, 2010 in Salon AB of the Hilton Hotel in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The topic of the roundtable is “Your Internet Presence- How to get IT and what to do with IT: A discussion of what IT is.”  I am honored to share the table with these  APG members and leaders in the genealogy field: Drew Smith, Josh Taylor, Kathy Hinckley, Katherine Flynn and Laura Prescott, moderator.

As stated in a recent blog posting:

The panel members will each discuss a particular option or area that can enhance a professional’s web presence then the discussion will be open to the audience for questions and a sharing of ideas. This is a subject that can have some of us quaking in our boots while others are smiling with the opportunity to expand their horizons. Which are you?

The APG Roundtable is open to all APG members and their guests.  If you are interested in becoming an APG member you are welcome to participate in learning and sharing from other professionals.

I am looking forward to a great discussion and the chance to interact with my colleagues in the field of professional genealogy.
