Genealogy Conference - Sandpoint, Idaho

I'm very excited to announce my first genealogy conference as the sole presenter, which will be held Saturday, June 23, 2007 at the East Bonner County Library District in Sandpoint, Idaho from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Following will be an open forum form 1:00 - 4:00 PM. It is co-sponsored by the library district and the Bonner County Genealogical Society. The conference is especially targeted to those in the community who are new to genealogy, but there are also many in the society who are seasoned researchers. I will giving three presentations:
  • Local Research Resources You Can't Afford to Ignore
  • Getting It Together: Organizing Your Files
  • Goals & Strategies: Organizing Your Research
The last presentation will be in an interactive workshop-style, where attendees can bring information on their brick wall ancestors to set goals and discuss strategies for breaking through to the next generation.

Sandpoint is a beautiful community on the edge of one of the deepest lakes in the world, Lake Pend Orielle (pond duh RAY). I look forward to meeting the library staff and members of the BCGS, and hope that together we can inspire new researchers with the joys of genealogy!

To register for the conference, please contact either the East Bonner County Library or the Bonner County Genealogical Society .

Thanks, Dae! It was last June, and I really enjoyed myself and meeting the good folks up in Sandpoint. I've since spoken at a number of other local societies and learning along with them!
