FREE Webinar – Dropbox for Genealogists

Legacy Family Tree Webinars

On the heels of the popular Google for Genealogists webinar that I delivered back on January 5, 2011, once again I am working with Legacy Family Tree Webinars on a new webinar!

Entitled Dropbox for Genealogists, here is the description for this 90-minute presentation (complete with 4-page syllabus) to be held on Thursday, April 21, 2011:

Are you familiar with Dropbox – a program that provides 2 gigabytes of online storage for free? Learn how to sign up for Dropbox, install the program and get started ensuring the safety and security of your genealogy research data. Seems too good to be true, right? Two gigabytes of online storage for free? And storage that can synchronize files across your computer, your laptop and even your mobile device? It is true, and you can learn how to leverage the power of Dropbox – a free online program to back up your genealogy data and even share files with friends and family. Join webinar host, Geoff Rasmussen, and Google for Genealogists’ presenter, Thomas MacEntee for this 90-minute session.

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.
