A Busy Two Weeks of Genealogy On The Horizon

A quick note as I dash out the door for my flight to O'Hare Airport here in Chicago to catch a flight to Salt Lake City!

I will be spending the next two weeks in what I call "Genealogy Heaven" attending the following events:
  • Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy: I will be taking the American Records I track during Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (January 23-27, 2012) produced by friend and colleague Paula Stuart-Warren. I've been looking forward to this for almost a year now.  For me, this week will be more than just attending the classes.  Since I'll be producing the Internet track for SLIG 2013, I'll be shadowing the process and pretty sure I'll annoy the heck out of Paula with my questions.  Note to self: take Paula out to lunch or dinner at least once this week!
  • Association of Professional Genealogists - Professional Management Conference: On Wednesday, February 1, 2012, I will be presenting "Virtual Presentations for Professional Genealogists" at the APG PMC.  Being selects is a big honor for me and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge of webinars from the presenter's point of view to many of my colleagues in the field.
  • RootsTech: Not only will I get to meet over 84 genealogy bloggers from around the world, but I'll be attending the largest genealogy and technology conference in the world at RootsTech from February 2-4, 2012.  I expect to meet lots of people, give two presentations and a luncheon keynote speech as well as have lots of fun!
I expected to have a backpack filled with tech gear in order to stay connected but if you get a slower response from me than usual, just realized that I'll be up to my ears in genealogy for the next two weeks!
