    You have 15 minutes before you need to _____________ (pick up the grandchildren / wash the dog / make dinner . . .).

    SA031 Turning Genealogy Clues into Genealogy To Do’s
    Does your genealogy research get bogged down when you find new clues about an ancestor? Do you stop everything and chase after that BSO (“bright and shiny object”)? Learn how to increase your research efficiency and still remember that new information for later investigation.

    SU034 Privacy, DNA, and Genealogy: Handling the Double-Edged Sword
    Especially as personal DNA testing increases in popularity, and with increased media attention to cold cases solved via DNA and the use of genealogy databases, today’s genealogist needs to stay on top of the latest information concerning privacy. We’ll review the current status of privacy practices by the big genealogy and DNA vendors, current laws and regulations, and what we might expect to see related to privacy in the future.
