Genealogy News Bits for February 28, 2011

Here are some news stories from around the genealogy world that may be of interest to you:

The FGS News Conference Blog is asking members to share ways that their societies are using technology. This information will be collected and shared with other societies during the 2011 conference in Springfield, IL. If you have a novel idea or story of success, share it! Details and contact information are here.

A.C. Ivory of Find My Ancestor has introduced a new newsletter to which you can subscribe. A.C. is one of the best resources for information mobile apps, Macs, and general use of technology in genealogy.

The Middle Peninsula African-American Genealogical and Historical Society is featuring some of the RootsTech videos at their website. Included in the list is Curt Witcher's "The Changing Face of Genealogy," which should be required viewing for all genealogists and societies. This isn't a complete list of the videos, but you can see these few online here.

Relative Roots has announced their March webinar schedule. See the list here.

A.C. Ivory of Find My Ancestor gets double billing today. He's released a video on how to make your Blogger blog mobile friendly. He promises to do the same for WordPress soon.

That's it for today. Go forth and be awesome.
