In the January 3, 2007, newsletter I wrote about the upcoming Computerized Genealogy Conference to be held on March 16 and 17 at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Now the organizers have published the final schedule of presentations, and it looks like this will be a great conference.
Topics included running genealogy software, working with databases, e-mailing for genealogy purposes, and finding useful tools on the Internet. Speakers include: Alan Mann, Anne Roach, Barry J. Ewell, Bill Mangum, C. Lynn Anderson, Claire V. Brisson-Banks, D. Merrill White, Donald & Diane Snow, Gary B. Pack, Geoffrey D. Rasmussen, Geri O'Farrell, Howard C. Bybee, Jack Simpson, Jim Greene, Kip Sperry, Kory L. Meyerink, Kyle J. Betit, Loretta Evans, Lorinda L. Mann, Matt Misbach, Maureen S. Bryson, Natalie Cottrill, Richard N. Given, Rick Crume, Rick Laxman, Steve W. Anderson, Suzanne Russo Adams, and some guy named Dick Eastman.
More than 600 genealogists attended last year's conference, and an even larger crowd is expected this year.
I am looking forward to this conference. If you can be in Provo on March 16 and/or 17, I'd suggest that you stop by. I think you will enjoy it.
