It’s been (way) too long since my last entry, but I’m hoping to write with more regularity in coming months. Some exciting things afoot:
- I’ll be returning to GRIP (the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh) later this month, taking David Rencher‘s Irish Genealogical Research course.
- In August, I’ll be representing the Italian Genealogical Group as its delegate at the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) Conference in
- This October, I’ll be in Kansas City, MO for the APG (Association of Professional Genealogists) Professional Management Conference. On Friday, October 5th, I’ll be giving a brand new talk: “Large Scale Digitization on a Small-Scale Budget”.
In my personal research, I’ve been spending a lot of time using genetic genealogy to untangle some long-standing family mysteries (including some that have only appeared *because* of genetic genealogy!). The power of DNA remains awe-inspiring – have you had your DNA tested yet?
