Saskatoon Conference

I sadly had to back-out of an agreement I had made with the Saskatoon branch of SGS to speak at their conference Apr/May 2011 due to the lack of a reliable Internet connection while I was in Punta Cana for two months early this year. It is the first time I've not been able to honour a committment, but I did give them enough time to fill the time slots. Still, I am sad. Trust all will have a great time at what looks like should be a great conference!

New genealogy search engine

Hey Guys! There is a brand new search engine designed specifically for genealogists. I've been playing with it for a while and think it is definately something worth watching. It was designed by Cliff Shaw, well known in genealogy circles. Give it a go at http://www.mocavo.com.

Sure wish I knew what Mocavo stands for as it's much easier (for me) to remember if I can relate it to real words.

Happy Searching!! Let me know how it works for you please?

Edmonton Alberta Conference

Arrived back in Saskatchewan March 16, my birthday! Quite a long day of flights, and not happy to see so much snow, but then it got worse as we got 5 freakin inches of snow Sunday night. Anyway, I know no one feels sorry for me so I'm suckin it up.grin

I am really looking forward to speaking at the Alberta Conference which you can read all about at http://abgensoc.ca/events.html. Conference is April 15 - 17th inclusive, 2011 in Edmonton!! Hope to see you there as I'll be giving three presentations, plus I've agreed to join a panel of four 'experts' who will be grilled by the audience at the Saturday night banquet addition named "Stump the Panel". Should be great fun!!
