So just what is FamilySearch doing to prevent the loss of genealogical records across the globe? Just how are they digitalizing all those documents and articles and records? How are they goiong to make it easier, quicker, and cheaper to access these records? And why are you looking to me to provide the answers to these quesions?
You should be looking to Bryce Roper at the 2010 Family History Expo in Mesa, Az! He is going to tell us all about RecordSearch and FamilySearch and their efforts to bring the past into the twenty-first century! You can hear his answers at the following times:
1/22 @ 1:30 Powerful Tips and Tricks for FamilySearch Record Search Coming
1/23 @ 9:30 Armchair Research: Easy Access to the World's Records.
And just why is Bryce going to be the one to answer those questions? Because Bryce is the Product Manager for FamilySearch, that's why! He's held many positions in the technology/marketing field and he knows his products!
The next presenter, if you read this blog with any regularity, is someone you should know whether you're going to be at the Mesa FH Expo or not: I'ts ME!
I am not a professional genealogist, nor am I teacher of genealogy (yet). I don't even have any degrees in history, Family Studies, or Sociology (but I come close on the last two!). My educational and professional backgrounds are in Social Work. I have worked in several areas of Social Work, from schools to behavioral health and now, medical. One thing that has come in handy in all my postions AND in my genealogy research is the use of Genograms. If you attend my presentation, you will gain an understanding of what a Genogram is and how it can help you gain a better understanding of your ancestors. And of yourself!
1/23 @ 1:00 When the Past Meets the Present to Change the Future: Using Genograms in Genealogical Research.
Genealogical Research methods have changed dramatically over the past few years; it's even different today than it was last year. Curtis Tirrell will spend some time at the Family History Expo in Mesa telling us not what we need to know about the past, but what we need to know about the future:
