What a great genealogy program we had last night!
We had a total of 60 participants in attendance last night and of those 60, 18 were noted as being first time attendees at our program! In all the years I have been doing this I have never had that many first time attendees at any of my previous programs!
Additionally, Dan Niemiec, our presenter for his program titled “Tips and Tricks for Using FamilySearch.org” was on fire last night with his presentation. He really knows his stuff and presented the internet material in a way that was eye-opening, especially on how to use all of the search filters. He also gave us many fun-filled laughs with his humorous comments made throughout.
See, genealogy can be and should be fun! Thanks Dan!
Dan has also been kind enough to allow me to include in this post a PDF copy of his 12 page handout from last night’s programs. For those of you that attended and picked up the paper handout this has little impact on you. But for those of you that are regular attendees (or for anyone else that comes across this post out in the blogosphere) and were unable to attend last night, this will be very helpful to you to have access to it electronically.
Here is the link to this 12 page handout:
Thank you to all that came out to our program last night. Thank you to Dan Niemiec for allowing me to include the PDF version of the handout from last night.
I hope the program left you with a lot more knowledge on how to use the FamilySearch.org website at:
