Full day genealogy seminar this Saturday, April 5 in Fair Oaks, California

If you are in the Sacramento, California area this weekend, or even if you are not (see below), I'd invite you to join me and the Sacramento Genealogical Society for a full day of genealogy methodology and technology. I will be presenting two brand new classes and major updates to two other classes:

Pre-registration is required (just mail it in by Tuesday, April 1). Here's the registration information. Held at the Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church at 11427 Fair Oaks Blvd in Fair Oaks, California, this group puts on one of the finest (if not the very best) seminars in the country every year. I'm so looking forward to Saturday! Oh, and if you have one of my books, bring it with you for the book signing at lunch.

If you are not in the area, I'd still invite you to join me as my "Googling Around with Google and other Fun Technology" class will be broadcast to both the live audience and to a live webinar audience. Click here to register.


New Bonus Webinar this Saturday - Googling Around with Google and other Technology by Geoff Rasmussen

Logowhite

Google and the genealogist were meant for each other. In this webinar, presented by FamilyTreeWebinars.com's host Geoff Rasmussen, you will learn how to unlock some of Google's secrets. Learn:

  • How to help our ancestors find us with Google Alerts.
  • How to better craft Google Searches with Douglas Barry's customized Google Search form.
  • How and why to search with a digital image instead of a phrase.
  • How to set up a Google Calendar and how to optionally embed other kinds of calendars.
  • How to view historical state and county boundaries (similar to AniMap, but for free) with Google Earth.
  • Other fun technology as time permits

This class is being presented to a live audience as part of the Sacramento Genealogical Society’s annual spring seminar. The seminar committee invites you – the live worldwide webinar audience – to join with them for this special class.

About the presenter

Tmacentee-100When Thomas MacEntee is not busy writing blog posts, organizing the 2500+ members of GeneaBloggers, teaching online genealogy webinars and more, Thomas MacEntee is busy in his role as “genealogy ninja.” Stealth is not always easy, but Thomas manages to get the inside track on emerging technologies and vendors as they relate to the genealogy industry. After being laid off from a 25-year career in the tech industry in 2008, Thomas has been able to “repurpose” his skill set for the genealogy community and loves to see other genealogists succeed, whether it is with their own research or building their own careers in the field.
