Confrence Day 2

so angryIMG_0751Today was absolutely amazing. Thank to Lisa Louise Cook’s class on googles tools, I found some amazing research on my great grandfather. I found a website called together we served which led to his own personal website describing what he did, his ranks, and how he got his medals and ribbons in the Army. I really recommend getting Lisa cooks New google toolbox book, I haven’t read it yet but if its anything like her class, its going to be so helpful.

We also participated in the global family reunion! We sang along to “We are Family” and threw beach balls around, and just had a lot of fun!

Conference day one

Today was the first day of conference and I had so much fun! My mom and I got there a bit early so I got to work on my computer for a bit.

Then I had a class on Emergency preparedness and keeping your genealogy safe here is a very important rule I learned from Denise Levenick; you should have 3 copies of everything, on at least 2 different media, and 1 in a off site location. You can remember it with just 3..2..1

I also went to a extremely helpful class on how to find information through geography, I also got to spend a lot of time with my mom, which is good, we spend so much time looking in to history we sometime forget were also making history.

Day Three (The Final Day) Jamboree

Today was the last day of the conference, so it ended early but we still learned a lot. I went to two classes the first was on Writing your Family history and the second was showing your family history through Prezi. If you haven’t heard of Prezi before, its amazing site that is used for presentations but is also helpful in explaingin your genealogy to others. http://prezi.com/ Anyway I had about an hour between my classes so my mom and I went to the exhibit hall and ran into a friend.

Day One Jamboree

So The first day of this conference was AMAZING!!!! Even though I had to come in late because of summer school. I was still able to catch some classes like Lisa Louise Cook’s class about the best Google search strategies! She had some amazing tips and tricks for when you uses Google for Genealogy! She even wrote a book on it, called The Genealogist’s Google Toolbox It was so helpful I also got a lot of great tips and ideas from some friends from last year that helped me with my elusive great grandfather. Plus my mom and I also had dinner at the restaurant here at the hotel, proving the saying Sleep, eat, research, repeat to be a valid practice.
