August 15-16, 2014: Improved Genealogy through Better Methods and Techniques. Keynote D. Joshua Taylor
Methodology matters, proven methods allow researchers to extract the most possible evidence from a record. Come and join us at the 2014 Washington State Genealogical Conference. Featuring some of the best genealogy speakers in the northwest and the nation. This conference will help you destroy your brick walls, advance your skills, and further your research. Speakers will explore methodology, technology, and DNA. Some will demonstrate great techniques, others the use of technology, plus some will explain how you can incorporate science into your research.
The conference opens with a full day of classes . Eric Stroschein will deliver a four session methodology workshop, Improved Genealogy through Better Methods and Techniques: Act II ,for all skill levels of genealogists. A similar program Eric taught last year, taking a family from basic research to an advanced case study, was standing room only. Many participants stated it was the best class they had ever taken. This bonus session has limited capacity and is sure to fill up quickly. Register early to secure your seat. We will round out the day with eight other classes given by the fantastic speakers Luana Darby, Jill Morelli, Janet Camarata, Teresa Shulze, and Susan Faulkner. D. Joshua Taylor will address the crowd at the banquet with an exciting and poignant topic on the future of genealogy.
This day is anchored by D. Joshua Taylor, who will conduct three different presentations to the entire assembly, focusing on methodology and advanced online search techniques. Eight additional break-out sessions or tracks ranging from DNA with Mary Kathryn Kozy, Foundations of Genealogy with Donna Potter Phillips, Intermediate Methods with Steven W Morrison, to Technology with Margie Beldin, will let you customize your experience to get exactly what you need and want from the conference.
With assistance from Snohomish County and the City of Arlington’s tourism boards this conference is shaping up to be very affordable and the most incredible genealogical learning experience held in the state. This is a must attend event.
