Virtual Genealogy Conference

FamilyTree University is hosting a Virtual Genealogy Conference next weekend. This is an interesting concept as you can participate from home, or anywhere you have an internet connection.

For three days participants will be able to watch fifteen 30-minute pre-recorded presentations online. They can set their own schedule and participate in live chats with the presenters. Tuition is $199 for the conference which will run tracks on technology, research strategies and ethnic research. For details on the lectures in each track see the conference program page.

The instructors include:
  • Rick Crume
  • Sunny Morton
  • Maureen Taylor
  • Diana Crisman Smith
  • Thomas MacEntee
  • Lisa Louise Cooke
  • Nancy Hendrickson
  • Lisa A. Alzo
I appreciate many forms of virtual genealogy education and will be interested to see how successful this conference is. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments.
  • What do you think of the virtual conference idea? 
  • Which presentations are you most interested in?
  • Do you think $199 is a good value for 15 presentations?
  • Do you like the 30 minute length, or do you prefer the traditional 60 minute lectures?
I would especially like to hear from those who participate in this online conference.
