The 42nd annual Genealogy Jamboree took place June 9-12, 2011, and I was there. Iâ€™ve been attending for more years than I can remember, and each experience is enriching. This yearâ€™s highlights included:
John Colletta and DG Fulford shared writing techniques that will ultimately make my family histories both accurate and engaging.
Lisa Louise Cooke and Leland Meitzler astonished me by showing how Google Earth can help me set up a virtual tour of my home town (Chicago) or ancestral towns (Berdichev, Slonim, Tiraspol, Volkovysk, Zhitomir)
Geoff Rasmussen of Legacy Software taught me how to set up a Focus Group so I can post another family tree at www.myheritage.com.
Daniel Horowitzat myheritage.com showed me how to change the settings at myheritage.com so I can successfully invite family members to see the family tree without automatically let them make changes to it. My inner control freak requires this.
