The following is an announcement from Brigham Young University
The ninth annual Computerized Genealogy Conference at Brigham Young University has been scheduled for Friday and Saturday March 10-11, 2006. This conference is designed to be a how-to guide for everyone, including beginning, intermediate, and advanced researchers. The focus of the conference is to learn how new computer programs and advancements in existing programs can help you be more effective in genealogy and family history work.
The featured presenter for this conference will be Cyndi Howells, owner and webmaster of Cyndi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet (http://www.cyndislist.com), which is a categorized index to more than 243,000 online genealogy sites and other resources. Cyndi's List has been voted the best genealogy site on the Web and receives more than 3.2 million visits each month. She is also the author of three best-selling genealogical research books on the Internet.
Last year more than 600 participants attended the computer conference learning how new programs can simplify and enhance research. Topics at this year's conference will include improvements in genealogy software, managing genealogical databases, and finding useful tools on the Internet. Some of our participants summed up their experience at the last conference by saying, "I learned everything I hoped to learn," and "I'm full of new ideas, enthusiasm, and new skills, ready to get to work when I get home!"
Vendors will be available throughout the conference to showcase their products, and provide demonstrations. Mark your calendars now for our March 10-11, 2006, Computerized Genealogy Conference, which will introduce to you the newest ideas in genealogical research.
This Computerized Genealogy Conference is sponsored by BYU Religious Education, BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy, BYU Computer Science Department, LDS Family History Library, and BYU's Division of Continuing Education
Anyone with interest in genealogy is invited to attend this conference where you will be able to meet with fellow genealogists and computer enthusiasts. You will also be able to learn from each other and leaders in the genealogy community-faculty, vendors and other presenters.
