Warming up for genealogy season…

That time of year is upon us again. . .

Genealogy conference season.

Within the past month or so, we have already witnessed the APG Professional Management Conference, RootsTech, the Forensic Genealogy Institute, the New England Regional Genealogy Conference, and the Ohio Genealogical Society Conference.

Next week comes the National Genealogical Society Annual Conference in Las Vegas. Though I am not presenting this year, I will be there, volunteering at both the APG and BCG booths in the Vendor Hall, and just generally hanging around.

From  June 9 to 14, I will be teaching in the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) at Samford University, in Birmingham, Alabama. This year I will presenting the following classes:

From July 21 to 26, I will be teaching in the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh. With John Philip Colletta, Ph.D., FUGA, I will be teaching in the course “Your Immigrant Ancestors’ Stories: Writing a Quality Narrative.” I am teaching the following session within the course:

  • Lineage Presentation and Numbering Systems
  • Evaluating Evidence and the Genealogical Proof Standard
  • Editing and Proofreading
  • Indexing
  • Pilgrims, Adventurers, Servants and Prisoners: Colonial Immigration to North America
  • Creating a Genealogy or Family History on a PC
  • Electronic Venues for Publishing Genealogies and Family Histories

Registration is still open for the course. The early bird registration closes on May 15.

I have a few other events coming up this spring and summer in addition to the big ones:

Hope to see you soon!
