NGS 2015 — Evernote for Genealogists

I recent­ly gave two talks on geneal­o­gy and tech­nol­o­gy at the NGS Fam­i­ly His­to­ry Con­fer­ence in St. Charles, Mis­souri.

One talk was Ever­note for Geneal­o­gists. Here are the slides. (Please note that I wrote these in Keynote, but have to con­vert them to Pow­er­Point to pub­lish, so there may be some con­ver­sion effects.)

A key resource for pow­er­ful search­es in Ever­note is this YouTube video on Ever­note search syn­tax:

FGS 2014

I attend­ed the Fed­er­a­tion of Genealog­i­cal Soci­eties annu­al con­fer­ence in San Anto­nio, Texas this week.

It was a great week, with good lec­tures from lead­ing geneal­o­gists, as well as an active exhi­bi­tion hall.

I was hon­ored to be asked to present two talks on the first day:

Strate­gic Plan­ning for Soci­ety Lead­ers

And … Elec­tron­ic Pub­lish­ing Fun­da­men­tals for Soci­ety Lead­ers
