A Plethora of Conferences

I guess I have decided to “hit the conference circuit” as they say (I’m not really sure who says this, but anyway). I will be presenting at a Webinar and 5 Conferences in January and February.

I start off the year on January 4, 2012 with a Webinar called, “Digital Books and Sites for Genealogists” for Legacy Family Tree’s Geoff Rasmussen. Geoff hosts an amazingly popular series of online webinars. You can register now for this interesting informative one hour+ webinar.

The following week, I will be in Yuma, Arizona, a very nice place to be in January. On January 14, 2012, the Yuma Family History Center is sponsoring a one-day conference. I will be giving the keynote address for the opening and teaching two classes.

The next week starts off with another conference in Yuma, this one sponsored by Family History Expos and the Yuma Genealogical Society on January 17, 2012. I will present two classes at this one-day conference. It remains to be seen how much blogging I can do in a one day seminar. But I will at least give everyone a recap of the events.

That weekend, on January 20 and 21, 2012, we will be in Mesa for another Family History Expo, Arizona Family History Expo 2012.  I will be presenting two more classes and keeping everyone informed with my blogging.

Jumping to February, I will be back up at RootsTech in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 2, 3 and 4, 2012 as both a presenter and a featured Blogger. I expect that there will be even more people at this huge conference. The last time I checked the site, they had plans for over 100 presentations over the three-day conference. RootsTech is the have-to-go-to conference of the year.  I will be blogging merrily away all during the conference.

My current list of conferences winds up on February 24, 25 2012 in sunny St. George, Utah for another Family History Expo, St. George Family History Expo 2012. I am presenting two more classes and participating on a panel.

Last year the weather was really nice in Salt Lake for the first ever RootsTech Conference. We can’t expect anything but good weather and warm sunny skies in Yuma, Mesa and St. George. If you need a break from snow, sleet and cold weather, come to our nice warm and friendly (and informative) conferences in beautiful Arizona and Southern Utah. Of course it will be cold in Salt Lake in February, but the Conference is all inside the Salt Palace.

If you attend any of these conferences, please take the time to meet me and introduce yourself. Who knows, I may venture out of the sunny south to other conferences next year, if the weather ever warms up.
