Today I will focus on two presenters for the 2010 Family History Expo in Mesa, Az., since I missed a few days for the Holiday.
Alice Volkert is on the board of the Southern California Chapter of the Association for Professional Genealogists. She focuses on general United States research and New England. She is also associated with the Family History Center in Orange, California. She is presenting on two topics at the Mesa Expo:
1. 1/23/10 @ 11:00: Digital Photography. Alice will discuss why the digital camera is one the most valuable tools for genealogical research.
2. 1/23/10 @ 2:30: Naming Patterns in Colonial New England. I suspect Alice has some tricky stories and tricks up her sleeve as she delves through the mysterious patterns (or lack thereof) of naming children in this early geographic area!
Anastasia Tyler is the Genealogy Research Manager for the Conferences and PR team at Ancestry.com. She is currently working on her accreditation on English Research, after having graduated from Brigham Young. She'll be presenting on two different occasions:
1. 1/22/10 @ 10:00: Getting the Most out of your Ancestry.com subscription
2. 1/22/10 @ 11:30: Best strategies for Searching Ancestry.com
Ancestry.com is constantly adding more data to their bases (sorry, couldn't help add a little twister there). Anastasia will tell you how to make the most of the site!
