My Private Family History Conference
After a busy summer, this is the perfect time to regroup and reorganize my office. What better way to do this while listening to some of my genealogy CDs, attend virtual webinars and catalog my genealogy reference holdings?
This morning while listening to the inspiring Judy G. Russell CG, on Legacy's webinar presentations: Building a Family From Circumstantial Evidence, I organized by software and program CD's.
This afternoon, I will be attending Ancestry's live webinar with Anne Mitchell's presentation on Tips on How to Organize if You Haven't Done it for Years, which is perfect timing with my current project!
Other "classes" I plan on attending are available to UGA members in the Virtual Chapter's webinar archives. I will catch up on some of the ones that I have missed.
Saturday, I will be "attending" SCGS's Jamboree Extension Series webinar which is being taught by my good friend, Denise Spurlock entitled: Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker. Researching Your Ancestor's Occupations.
In between "sessions", I have a stack of genealogical reading to catch up on. The latest NGS Quarterly and UGA Crossroads, as well online newsletter's from various societies are begging to be read.
If that is not enough to keep me busy genealogically, I have 4 presentations to prepare for that I am giving at the UGA Fall Family History Fair, and I was just notified that 2 presentations (and one, that I will give twice) have been accepted by Rootstech 2013, as well as the presentations for Story@Home 2013 that need to be fine tuned.Yep, I will be lucky if I get out of my office by Christmas!
Try having your own private family history conference...it is the next best thing to being there!
