Yes, that is ME – Speaker! I’m SOOOOOO excited! Offering two classes – Acadians & French-Canadians in North America and You CAN Take It With You! Mobile Technology for Genealogy. Can’t wait! I leave Tuesday and begin the incredible, the scary, the fun, exciting and learning opportunity that is being a speaker at the LARGEST genealogy conference in the world! Yes, you heard me .. the world!
RootsTech 2018 has over 300 classes, keynote speakers, an Innovation Showcase, networking, learning, meeting new people – I’m already hooking up with some likely cousins (all French-Canadians and Acadians are somehow related!) and a client from my Lineage Journeys work. And a helpful and kind participant in one of my workshops who is also an Acadian descendant….and friends from here in Michigan. And more … right? This is aligning to be so cool … can you tell that I’m excited! Watch for updates!
CONGRATULATIONS to KimberlySavage!!!
CONGRATULATIONS to Kimberly Savage!!!Kimberly won our giveaway of a FREE registration to the RootsTech 2018 conference in Salt Lake City!! She will join me and thousands of others in networking, learning and sharing at the largest worldwide gathering for genealogy.
Ok, enough shouting, right? But it’s exciting to welcome a fellow family researcher to the event, which will be my first too, but I’m also presenting so, for me, it’s an opportunity that is just too wonderful. I’m a networking DIVA and love the interaction and excitement of talking about your families, finding others researching similar lines and helping those who are just beginning the process – my way of “paying it forward” is to do the best job I can in sharing how to do the research and find the records that will help someone to know their family’s stories.
And, I’m hoping to meet Kimberly there – we have emailed and she’s saying that she will find me at the conference so that we can meet. That will be fun! And maybe she and I will find out too if we are cousins (my husband and friends will tell you that I’m always figuring out how someone is my cousin – we ARE all related, you know!!!).
So, congratulations Kimberly and thank you to all of you who entered the contest by following me here on the blog. Watch for upcoming content that will help those of you researching Ontario, French-Canadian, Quebec,
Michigan or First Nations/Native ancestry – those are the areas that I specialize in as well as doing genealogy overall. Let me know if I can help you: firstname.lastname@example.org
