FamilySearch released their ‘first batch’ of announced sessions this week. There’s something about each of these that interests me. Particularly, the sessions on Genealogy 2.0/social media, uses of Android technology in genealogy, QR codes, copyright law, and using the Library of Congress have got my attention.
I’m really interested in new ways to use technology to get more mileage out of my research time. I’m also a technology junkie, so I like feeling that I’m out in front on the developing uses of technology. I’m also a strictly Android only user, so I’m glad to see some presentations on its use. After all, we’re not all as enamored with iOS as some content providers seems to think.
Anway, it’s a long list, I know, and many of these sessions may be offered the same time, but here’s my complete list. What sessions have you got your eye on? Let me know the what & why in the comments – I’d love to know.
