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.

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.
