  • Pam Vestal : "Finding What You Need and Making the Most of What You Find"
  • With so much information available to us today, it can be hard to know how to find what we seek, or what to do with it after we've found it.  Discover an assortment of techniques that can help you search the internet more successfully, extract those useful genealogical nuggets from your documents, organize what you've found, and evaluate your evidence.  We'll look at tools for locating overlooked records, understanding codes in documents, recovering missing websites, finding evidence of name changes, and much more.

  • ​​Inspiring Ways to Capture the Interest of Non-Genealogists - about 12:30PM
    • ​​If you are researching your family tree but haven’t shared it with your family in a way that sparks their interest, then you are only experiencing half of the joy of genealogy! And if your descendants don’t grasp the importance of their heritage, your hard work may tragically find its way to the city dump when you are gone. Don’t just collect your family history and store it away in binders and files! Learn how creative displays, crafts and digital content can capture the imagination of your non-historian friends and relatives, while honoring your ancestors.
