The 2009 BYU Conference on Family History and Genealogy will be held July 28-31 in Provo, Utah. The deadline for syllabus material is June 22.
My presentation is one I have done before: “Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard.” We are allotted 4 pages for the syllabus material and so far I have used 3. Here is a preview of the syllabus material. Please provide constructive feedback.
P.S. I will be presenting on Friday, July 31 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. My presentation is part of the Methodology track. I love to meet my blog readers, so attend the presentation or stop by afterwards and introduce yourself.
Almost 50 days ago, I posted a video titled “A Better Way to Cite Onilne Sources” with 2 corresponding surveys. Since then 358 people responded to the individual survey and 9 to the company/organization survey. It was my first time using SurveyMonkey for online surveys and overall I was pleased with the website. I did have grand hopes that at least 1,000 people would respond to the survey to get more accurate results. To date, the video has been viewed 2,483 times. It seems like a good time to end the survey and analyze the results. Plus, keeping the survey going costs $19.95 a month and I budgeted for only two months.
I plan to e-mail a copy of the results to all those who took the survey and provided an e-mail address. If you took the survey, didn’t provide your e-mail, and still want a copy of the results, contact me via this contact link.
As time permits, I will write about the survey results and some of the feedback I received.
I am grateful to the many bloggers and podcasters that spread the word about this effort. Thank you for all that watched the video and participated in the survey. I am excited to see how this effort continues over the next months and years.
