Two Free Webinars for Genealogy Speakers

Genealogical Speakers Guild

I will be presenting two free webinars geared towards genealogy speakers over the next two months:

Introduction to GoToWebinar

Wednesday, February 22, 2012
9:00 pm Eastern
8:00 pm Central
7:00 pm Mountain
6:00 pm Pacific

As a genealogy speaker, have you heard about speakers using GoToWebinar to give their presentations over the Internet and from the comfort of their home? Learn the ins and outs of one of the most popular webinar presentation platforms in this informative session. You’ll see how easy GoToWebinar is for both the presenter (you) and the attendees (your audience) and how you can increase your speaking opportunities.

Space is limited. Reserve your Webinar seat now at: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/287128774

Tips and Tricks for Webinar Presenters

Wednesday, March 21, 2012
9:00 pm Eastern
8:00 pm Central
7:00 pm Mountain
6:00 pm Pacific

Ever wonder how presenting virtually – using a webinar platform – is different than presenting in front of a real audience? Want to polish your current webinar style and improve your presentations? Learn from the “king of genealogy webinars” Thomas MacEntee as he shares his tips, tricks and secrets to a successful webinar presentation. Thomas will cover the process from creation of the slides to marketing your webinar to how to cope when technology fails you!

Space is limited. Reserve your Webinar seat now at: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/219084070

Both webinars are sponsored by the Genealogical Speakers Guild and are open to members and the public. Space is limited – please register early. Webinar recordings and handouts will be made available in the Members Section of the GSG website after each webinar.

Wisconsin State Genealogical Society Gene-A-Rama April 27-28, 2012

I’m happy to announce that I will be featured as the main speaker for the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society‘s Gene-A-Rama event, April 27-28, 2012 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

During the FGS 2011 conference, I had the chance to chat with Mary Rieder, WSGS president and she had no problem convincing me to make the trip north for this great event.

I will be presenting some of my more popular lectures including Facebook for GenealogistsManaging Your Genealogy Data, and They’re Alive – Searching for Living Persons. And I will be developing a new lecture just for the folks at WSGS entitled Behind the Cheese Curtain: A Look at Wisconsin Genealogy Resources.

Finally, I will also provide a humorous look at genealogy and technology – Genealogy
Party Line: Hung Up on Technology – during the Friday evening banquet.

As you can see above, I love working with genealogy societies and I can even customize an in-person talk or webinar (from my home in Chicago) just for your society!

Come join me and many other genealogists in Green Bay next April! Click here for more information.
