The 2007 conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies is off to a great start in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Thanks to the good folks at RootsTelevision.com, you can see many of the highlights even if you are many miles away. All you need is your computer and an Internet connection.
I also had a small part in producing these videos and must say that I enjoyed doing so. While I will continue to write about the conference, sometimes a (moving) picture is worth a thousand words or more. I will write about specific products and services but the overall "look and feel" of the conference is best illustrated by video. You can see the conference at http://www.rootstelevision.com/players/player_conferences.php?bctid=1137849532.
Note: The video works best on high-speed broadband Internet connections. However, those on dial-up can also watch it if you are a bit patient. I even watched it on my cell phone's Internet connection which is slower than most dial-up connections. There were numerous pauses during the video but everything was preserved and played after each pause.
