Following much planning, emails and international phone calls, I'm
ready to start my 2011 Genealogy Tour.
As in the past, I'll travel to a number of genealogy conferences, such
as: RootsTech, Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE! UK, Ohio Genealogy
Society Conference, New England Regional Genealogy Conference, and the
National Genealogy Society conference.
I'll also take the opportunity to lecture at genealogy societies in
many locations. This year, most are on the East Coast of the US.
My journey starts with a short trip on February 7 to speak at the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Utah, followed by the new RootsTech
conference, in Salt Lake City. After speaking at the Albuquerque JCC
(New Mexico) on February 13, I head to the Breman Museum in Atlanta,
on February 14, were they have prepared a wonderful program including
a special visit to the exhibitions. Then to London UK for the JGS of
Great Britain on February 24 and the "Who Do You Think You Are Live
2011" the next 3 days.
After a short break at home to see my wife and children, there's a
long trek beginning March 29 (Dayton, Ohio) concluding May 15
My lecture schedule is listed below. However, other talks may still be
added. If your organization would like to schedule a talk, contact me
at da...@myheritage.com, and keep up to date with the tour on my
personal site, http://www.searchingformyroots.com
I'll be back in the US in June and August, but will write more about
that trip later.
Pass on the information to those who are interested in genealogy, post
it on bulletin boards, and try to attend one of the talks to learn
about the latest technology developments in genealogy and receive a
free gift from MyHeritage.com.
