DearMYRTLE and Not You Mother’s Genealogy–Fun Day in Fairfax, VA

April 9, 2013

This past weekend, April 5th and 6th, was the Fairfax Genealogical Society Spring Conference, in Fairfax, VA. This is our second year for attending and had another great time.

Friday afternoon and evening, I listed and learned from Dr. Thomas W Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS for 3 of the 4 hours he spoke. There is so much to learn from him. I look forward to his up coming book Mastering Genealogy Proof.

Day 2 was with my cousin DearMYRTLE and her daughter Carrie of Not Your Mother’s Genealogy. They did for presentations together, and were awesome.

  • Embracing Technology
  • Is Social Media A Genealogist’s Tool?
  • How Ancestry Trees Can Jump Start Your Family History Research
  • I Have An iPad And I’m Not Afraid To Use It

4 hours of technology based tools for the Genealogy Tool Box.
