NWA Genealogy Conference

I was honored to be a speaker at the Family History Conference of Northwest Arkansas this past Saturday.  I really enjoyed the discussions in the classes that I taught and I hope that all who attended had a great day and found some useful information in those classes.

I also was able to attend a couple of the other classes at the conference and as I always do when attending a genealogy conference I found some useful information in those classes and had a very enjoyable day.

Thanks so much to those who worked so hard to make the conference a reality for another year.  I have attended almost all of the conferences since they started several years ago and each conference has been an enjoyable and educational conference.

To any who attended my classes (or other classes at the conference) I am making my presentations available on my dropbox.  I believe the links to the dropbox is on the CD of handouts from the conference but if it isn’t or you didn’t receive a CD just send me an email and I will send you the link!



Spring is here!

It has been almost three months since I have added a post to this blog.   The early part of this year has been very busy for me.   I have had a lot going on at work and there have been several personal issues that have kept me from working on my genealogy or updating my blog.  Some of these issues have been resolved so I am trying to get back to my genealogy and blogging.

I am really excited to be a speaker at the upcoming Family History Conference in Springdale.  I have been a speaker there several times in the past but personal issues kept me from attending or speaking at last year’s conference. The conference is Saturday, April 22nd from 8am to 445pm.

I will be teaching two classes:  Go Live on the Internet Sharing your Family History and Genealogy Software including Mobile Apps.  I am really looking forward to teaching the classes and to attending other classes at the conference!

The Conference is open to the public and free!  Hope to see you there! http://www.familyhistoryconferencenwa.org/

I am also trying to get back into my genealogy. I am starting a genealogy Do – Over for 2017 and I have decided to use Family Tree Maker 2017 as my genealogy software.  The new version is set to be released later this week pending results of the latest Beta test. I will post information about my progress in later posts.


More to come later,
