I am headed out this week to Provo, Utah. I'll be attending the Computerized Genealogy Conference to be held on March 16 and 17 at Brigham Young University. In fact, I'll be speaking there as well.
While I will be carrying a laptop computer and various wireless network devices, there is always a possibility of being left incommunicado. Don't be surprised if there are no new articles posted to the daily newsletter for a few days. Next Sunday's weekly Plus Edition e-mail newsletter also might be delayed by a day or two as I will spend most of next Sunday in the air.
The Computerized Genealogy Conference looks like it will be a great event. More than 600 people are expected to learn about today's latest technology as it applies to genealogy research efforts. 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, and Suzanne Russo Adams.
You can read my original article about the conference at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2007/01/byus_annual_200.html. The conference's web site is at http://ce.byu.edu/cw/cwcompu and the list of presentations is available at http://ce.byu.edu/cw/cwcompu/2007/schedule.cfm.
If you can be in Provo this Friday or Saturday, I think you might enjoy this event.
