News Bits for February 21, 2011

As promised, here are some of the news stories I've collected today that may be of interest to you.

FGS has put out it's call for papers for the 2012 conference. Details and guidelines here.

Are you a blogger who will be at Jamboree? Geneabloggers wants to know so answer this quick survey. I suspect this is a preliminary head count for a possible social event so let your voice be heard.

Remember the unconferencing session on Technology and Genealogy Societies I attended at RootsTech? The notes on the session have been published here. Use them as you wish and share them with your societies.

Guess that's it for today. Now go forth and be awesome.


  1. Thank you for the link to the RootsTech Unconference session. Very valuable.

  2. That unconferencing session looked like it was very good. Wish I had gone to that one. Thanks for the link. I joined the wiki so I could stay on top of other Rootstech session reports.

    Curt Witcher covered a lot of these issues at his talk at the Rootstech FGS luncheon. It appears to be a universal problem. I did a summary of his talk on my webpage.
