Get Your Genealogy Groove Back Boot Camp - 25 January 2014

Get Your Genealogy Groove Back Boot Camp

Come join well-known genealogy educators Lisa Alzo and Thomas MacEntee as they team up to offer a unique education event: Get Your Genealogy Groove Back Boot Camp! On Saturday, January 25, 2014, you’ll be able to learn how to tackle the nagging issues that can suck all the fun out of family history research.
  • Do you always start the year off setting genealogy goals but you never seem to follow through?
  • Are you overwhelmed with the amount of data involved with genealogy research – to the point of walking away?
  • Want to develop better habits to manage genealogy projects and actually complete them?
While our focus will be on genealogy and family history projects, you may become so successful that you start using these techniques to manage areas of your work and life!

You’ll receive over 3 hours of educational content, handouts and freebies for the low price of $12.95! You’ll also receive access to the recorded versions of each webinar for up to one year!

Register by Monday, January 20, 2014 and receive $3 off the registration price for a low $9.95! Space is limited and if you register but can’t attend, you’ll still receive the handouts, the freebies and access to the recordings!

Genealogy Goals:  How to Set Them, How to Keep Them
Presented by:  Lisa A. Alzo, M.F.A.

Want to make 2014 your best genealogy year ever?  Whether you desire to improve your research skills, find new cousins, break through a brick wall, or finally write that family history, this session will show you effective ways to set realistic and attainable goals, and offer tips and tricks to help you achieve them.*

*    Attendees will also receive a free Ancestor Tracking Chart in downloadable PDF format.

Managing the Genealogy Data Monster
Presented by:  Thomas MacEntee

It is so easy to let the large amounts of data involved with genealogy overwhelm you – to the point that family history research is no longer fun! Learn how to tackle the three main problem areas of genealogy data: research data, project data and file data so you can put the fun back in your research!

We’ll cover the basics of working “smarter” instead of “harder” when it comes to managing genealogy data. Topics include setting up genealogy projects and tracking them to completion, using a research log to track research, and how to better manage your genealogy data files.*

*    Attendees will also receive free data management templates for genealogy projects and a genealogy research log.
