    Join Me and Learn New Skills at the Family Tree University Fall Virtual Genealogy Conference

    When you can't go to a genealogy conference, let the conference come to you! Family Tree University will present a Virtual Genealogy Conference September 14-16, 2012 with 15 recorded webinars, online chats, discussions, and giveaways.

    Final FTU 200x2002 300x167

    I am one of several genealogy educators who will present sessions for the weekend in three tracks -- Technology, Research Strategies, and Ethnic Research. One of the advantages of a virtual conference is that you don't have to choose between concurrent sessions. Every presentation is pre-recorded and your registration pass gives you full access to view and download sessions throughout the weekend for view whenever you wish.

    I will be presenting two sessions on digitizing with your heirloom documents and photos and your genealogy piles (oops, files). 

    Scanning Secrets

    Do you have photos and documents you want to preserve digitally? In this class, discover tips and tricks for scanning your family ephemera, from choosing the right resolution to cropping and more.

    Paperless Pedigrees: Organizing Your Genealogy Electronically

    There’s a bigger benefit to going green in your genealogy than simply saving the environment: Embracing electronic documentation can preserve and put in order your exhaustive research. Just because the material you work with is old doesn’t mean your organization techniques should be outdated. Check out this class to get your e-files in order.

    You can get a head-start on the conference at FaceBook by attending live 30-minute chats hosted by several conference presenters. Read the full schedule for dates and times of Meet the Presenter on FaceBook.
