See you in Ft. Lauderdale


   In just a week, I’ll be leaving for Ft Lauderdale for the National Genealogical Society Conference.  This is the first time since 2004 that one of the National Conferences has been held in Florida.  …

Creating a Research Plan

   Do you have a research plan?  When you sit down at your computer do you just open up a database (Ancestry, FamilySearch, FindMyPast, American Ancestors, etc.) and type in a name?  If so, you’re probably just surfing rather than researching.  …

What to Read

   Even with a busy schedule, I get some reading in every day, usually when I finally climb into bed…I find reading helps me unwind at the end of the day.  I read lots of different kinds of books, but am especially partial to historical novels.  …

Social Networking for Genealogists

   I’m surprised as I’m going around and giving lectures, how many avid genealogists, who log on to databases and “google” for ancestors avoid social networking like the plague!  When I ask why they’re not on Facebook or Twitter the usual response is some form of “I don’t care what people had for lunch!”
