As I mentioned earlier this week, the Florida State Genealogical Society is hosting the 2017 Fall Virtual Conference today and tomorrow. I listened to all four talks today and they were great! Such interesting topics, great presenters, and lots of new ideas for my research.
I’m liking it so much I decided to blog again about it because it’s being recorded so you still have a chance to hear the content. If you register for the conference today ($59.95 for non-members) you’ll have access to the recordings for three weeks and you can download the handouts. It’s a great opportunity and I’m glad I didn’t miss out out on it.
Case in point: Today’s talk by Daniel Earl on using funeral records was so interesting and new to me. I had never thought about how funeral records, like bills of sale and programs of funeral services, could help my genealogy research. Now I not only know about them I know where to look for them and even how to contact funeral directors to ask for help.
If you have the money in your genealogy budget, I’d urge you to sign up for this conference, listen in tomorrow live and listen to the recordings of today’s talks over the next three week. I think it’s a well worth the time and a great value.
