11th Annual Genealogy Computing Week

March 2009 will be the 11th annual Genealogy Computing Week at Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg, Illinois. We are in the process of setting topics. In the past we have had all-day hands workshops on:

  • Using Ancestry.com
  • Using Footnote.com
  • Overseas Research
  • Maps and Images
  • Family Tree Maker
  • Using Genline for Swedish Research
  • RootsMagic
  • DeedMapper
  • Online Research Techniques

We are soliciting topics and ideas for content for 2009. Suggestions can be sent to me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com. Our registration fee will remain the same in 2009 at $35. We realize that it costs to travel and many of our participants are not local residents. Galesburg is easily accessible via interstate and Amtrak does run to Galesburg. Unfortunately there is no campus housing, but there is an Enterprise can rental very close to the train station. Questions about our workshops can be sent to me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com.
