This is an exciting week for family historians and genealogists in the Phoenix area as the 1st annual Mesa Arizona Family History Expo will start this Friday, November 14th. As a resident of Phoenix, I’ve thought for a long time that Arizona would be a great place to hold a family history conference (especially in the fall and winter months) and I am happy to see that one is coming. If all goes well this year, then we can look forward to the sponsors, Family History Expos.com, returning again for many years to come.
On Friday and Saturday I will be attending classes and visiting the booths in the exhibit hall. On Saturday at 2:30pm in the Palo Verde II room, I will be presenting:
Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard
(Beginner – Experienced) This class discusses the Genealogical Proof Standard and walks the student through the process by way of a visualization called the Genealogy Research Process map. Each step is explored through case study and uses traditional and online resources.
I hope that you can make it to the presentation. If any blog readers are attending the conference and you happen to see me, then come say “hello.”
Until then, I will be counting down the days.
