President's Message - December 2018
As mentioned at our meeting last year, and in the August newsletter, the Family History Society of Arizona will be hosting D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS, for our 2019 Annual Meeting.
The host of the Genealogy Roadshow, renown author and speaker, and distinguished presenter, D. Joshua Taylor will be meeting you will not want to miss. I listed his entire bio in the August newsletter, and you can check him out on his website at https://djoshuataylor.com.
With the assistance of the East Valley Chapter, the hosting Chapter this year, our Board of Directors has narrowed down Joshua’s presentations.
On Friday, March 8th, we will continue our Friday evening presentation with:
Finding the Roots of Your Family Legends
Just because Great Aunt Mable said your ancestor was from Scotland, doesn’t
mean that he was. Learn how to uncover the truth behind family legends and
stories, and how to integrate them into your personal writing and research.
On Saturday, March 9th, we will have four presentations:
Essential Technology for Genealogists
Genealogists do not necessarily need to be on the “edge’ of technology; however
they should be aware of new technologies that can further their research efforts.
Come see the list of technology every genealogist should own.
The Modern-Genealogist: Timesaving Tips for Every Researcher
While we would all like to devote more hours to family history, there simply are
not enough hours in most days to do so. Learn time-saving techniques to make
the most of every minute (or hour) you are researching.
New Tools and Ideas in Research
The field of genealogy is constantly changing and evolving. Each day new
techniques, resources, and tools are developed to assist in the quest for one’s
ancestors. Learn technological developments (including gadgets and gizmos);
newly discovered resources for genealogical research and more.
On and Off the Net: Locality Searching
Researching by locality is an essential research method for genealogists. Uncover the best resources (both online and offline) for research by localities. Highlights of this lecture include a look at the USGenWeb Project and the resources found in genealogical and historical societies.
Give yourself a great Christmas present and purchase yourself a ticket for these outstanding presentations. Tickets should be available soon, so check the website, FHSA.org for availability. Remember, mark your calendars, Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9, 2019.
